Transmetropolitan News on the Horizon?
I think we can say we’ve finally broken something and can claim to be the first to report on something. About 10:30pm tonight we received a notification that an “@transmet” was now following @graphicpolicy. We looked and the following list was quickly rising, much quicker than someone could click. We dug in further and the followers lean heavily involved in the comic book industry either as professionals or fans.
Can we expect an announcement concerning Transmetropolitan soon? The series was written by Warren Ellis with art by Darick Robertson and was published by DC originally under the Helix line but eventually under Vertigo.
It chronicles the battles of gonzo journalist Spider Jerusalem in a future cyber-punk world. The character is an homage to gonzo journalism founder Hunter S. Thompson.
We reached out to a representative from DC comics for comment. We followed up with the account and just received a direct message to “Stay tuned! ;)”
