Wandered into a comic store on a whim, being on holiday as I am, and asked for recommendations in the realm of one of my (and every one else's) favourites: Transmetropolitan, and it's loveable arsehole of a protagonist Spider Jerusalem.

Some chatter, recommendations and a delightful chat later I make my way out with a new purchase; the owner of the store leaves me with this thought: "You know, we could do with a Spider Jerusalem right now". He's not wrong; Spider holds everyone to ruthless account, himself very much included.

Get you a copy of the first book, it's outstanding (and features some of the greatest insults in modern writing)
