About this project

It has been nearly ten years since the release of the final issue of TRANSMETROPOLITAN, the Eisner-nominated comics series from writer Warren Ellis and artist Darick Robertson. We have approached Mr Ellis and Mr Robertson about putting together a brand new art book of original images, and we’re happy to report both of the co-creators will be participating in this project, donating a brand new cover and a foreword for the book!

TRANSMETROPOLITAN combines black humor, political scandal, and moral ambiguity to look into the gonzo mind of an outlaw journalist and The City he inhabits. Aided by his embattled Editor and his two Assistants, the protagonist blazes a path through a futuristic world of skyscrapers and technological wonders, dark alleys and unspeakable depravity.

You can preview the first issue for free, courtesy of DC Comics, by visiting..

This new art book will be a hardcover volume limited to a few thousand hand-numbered copies.

Our goal is to raise $100,000 to be donated* to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and the Hero Initiative. All of the participating artists are donating new original art for the book. Those contributors include:
