He is creepy cool. LikeLike Reply He is the main character of the comic Transmetropolitan, by Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson. It ran from 1997 to 2002, but the trade paperbacks should still be available. He’s like a science fiction version of Hunter S. Thompson (although, to be fair, Hunter S. Thompson was kind of a science fiction version of Hunter S. Thompson, so that’s a little recursive). LikeLike Reply @Hepburn – I’m looking him up, too. Wikipedia has this article which may help = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spider_Jerusalem LikeLike Reply Thanks Beeftacos and Woodrobin! : ) I will mos def check him out! LikeLike Reply Transmet is by far one of my favorite books, and Spider Jerusalem one of the greatest characters I’ve ever had the pleasure to enjoy and simultaneously be completely horrified by. Warren Ellis has a beautiful, insane mind. I have a recurring fangirl dream where I am in a British pub have a beer with Mr. Ellis, picking his brain about Spider. LikeLike Reply I have decided that this image of Spider Jerusalem needs to be on a t-shirt or a tote bag! : ) LOVES IT! LikeLike Reply It’s so good! LikeLike Reply Newbie…. I love transmet. Love Spider and his many faced cat. He tends to over analyse his bowel (and others) but as with above fans, Ellis has a great mind. I’m drawn to this genre because it echoes real life or rather amplifies some of the worse aspects of humankind. We could definitely learn from it. LikeLike Reply Welcome! I love Spider, too … and I agree wholeheartedly that we could learn from the absurdity and awful contained in Transmet. LikeLike Reply What do you think? Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
