Things are starting to get really interesting here. Spider goes on the attack, and it costs him his job. Funny thing is, it looks like he couldn’t be happier. Watching him go on the attack is pretty satisfying, actually, and seeing the hammer come down doesn’t ruin the effect. I sort of feel like the best is yet to come.
Spider Jerusalem steps up his campaign of showing the world the truth about President Callahan aka the Smiler, and vindicating the death of Vita Severn. But as he builds his case by going through the list of people involved with Callahan’s election, each of the witnesses is killed off. Worse still, he’s about to lose his job at the Word and become a true outlaw journalist, hitting the road and dodging bullets and the President sets his sights on a bald headed drug addict and his filthy assistant
“Gouge Away” continues the increasingly more dramatic storyline of the battle between Spider and the President with the stakes being raised more and more. I liked that Warren Ellis saw fit to get Spider out of the ivory tower that was the luxury apartment he was ensconced in and set him free in the City, it’s made for a far more interesting story.
Also included is a one shot tale of the Filthy Assistants, Yellena and Channon, breaking free of Spider for a day and going wild in the City, as well as a look at the celebrity Spider’s become due to his columns. Ellis enlists the help of artists like Bryan Hitch, Frank Quitely and Eduardo Risso to draw the TV movie/cartoon/porno versions of Spider following the success of “I Hate It Here”.
As always the balance between serious and farcical is walked perfectly by Ellis and Darick Robertson, both of whom seem to be getting better and better with each passing book. “Gouge Away” is an excellent book and only makes the series that much more addictive and interesting to read. “Transmetropolitan” is highly recommended reading.
