Year Five: Shut It Down. Things look bad for outlaw journalist Spider Jerusalem. He's lost his job and everything he owns. He's been diagnosed with an untreatable and almost certainly terminal brain infection. And he's being hunted by professional assassins dispatched by a vengeful and implacable president of the United States of America. But Spider's spirit is buoyant, and his heart is glad. Why? Because he and his filthy assistants have picked up the trail of corruption and deceit that the president has left behind. Because all of those murderous loose ends are finally coming together. And because Spider has the truth on his side and nothing left to lose. In the end, only one of these battle-scarred beasts will be left standing. But will either of them actually walk away from their epochal showdown alive? Acclaimed writer Warren Ellis (Castlevania, The Wild Storm) and artist Darick Robertson (The Boys, Happy!) file their final dispatch from a disturbingly familiar future in Transmetropolitan Book Five, collecting issues #49-60 of their cauterizingly caustic series.

The Routledge Companion to Cyberpunk Culture

The Routledge Companion to Cyberpunk Culture

Absolute Transmetropolitan Volume One. ... William Gibson's Neuromancer, The Graphic Novel: Volume 1 by William Gibson, Tom De Haven, and Bruce Jensen.

Author: Anna McFarlane

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 9781351139861

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 454

View: 965

In this companion, an international range of contributors examine the cultural formation of cyberpunk from micro-level analyses of example texts to macro-level debates of movements, providing readers with snapshots of cyberpunk culture and also cyberpunk as culture. With technology seamlessly integrated into our lives and our selves, and social systems veering towards globalization and corporatization, cyberpunk has become a ubiquitous cultural formation that dominates our twenty-first century techno-digital landscapes. The Routledge Companion to Cyberpunk Culture traces cyberpunk through its historical developments as a literary science fiction form to its spread into other media such as comics, film, television, and video games. Moreover, seeing cyberpunk as a general cultural practice, the Companion provides insights into photography, music, fashion, and activism. Cyberpunk, as the chapters presented here argue, is integrated with other critical theoretical tenets of our times, such as posthumanism, the Anthropocene, animality, and empire. And lastly, cyberpunk is a vehicle that lends itself to the rise of new futurisms, occupying a variety of positions in our regionally diverse reality and thus linking, as much as differentiating, our perspectives on a globalized technoscientific world. With original entries that engage cyberpunk’s diverse ‘angles’ and its proliferation in our life worlds, this critical reference will be of significant interest to humanities students and scholars of media, cultural studies, literature, and beyond.

 Comics and the punk movement are inextricably linked—each has a foundational do-it-yourself ethos and a nonconformist spirit defiant of authority. This collection of new essays provides for the first time a thorough analysis of the intersections between comics and punk. The contributors expand the discussion beyond the familiar U.S. and UK scenes to include the influence punk has had on comics produced in other countries, such as Spain and Turkey.
