    To be honest I think they should leave that cover alone. You know especially the Vol 3, with Spider at the top of the building, viewpoint looking down. That cover made me pick up Lust for Life, made me demand more, made me love Ellis, brought me here, spent most of my money...

    @dot_xom - I've lost count how many times I've read it. I've actually called people "whorehopper" during ... conversations, let's say. Lemme tell ya, it works!

    My favorite line? "Someday, I'm going to drop a bomb on this city. A contraceptive bomb."

    Please, I hope they never make the movie. Yes, give Warren millions of dollars. But no. No movie.

    I just read 'Monstering' again.

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    Although 5 big $20 paperbacks would be better, this isn't too bad. Evens out the look of the series. Also, the book really took a leap forward after the first short storyline, so it's nice that new readers will get a taste of that.

    Perhaps it also means full-sized covers in a couple of the earlier books.

    http://comicsworthreading.com/2008/10/28/transmetropolitan-revamp-plan-changes/

    The TRANSMETROPOLITAN VOL. 1: BACK ON THE STREET NEW EDITION TP now will include issues #1-6 of the original series, which were previously available in volumes 1 and 2 of the collected editions. It will be advance-solicited in the December Previews to arrive in stores in March.

    Following that, the TRANSMETROPOLITAN VOL. 2: LUST FOR LIFE NEW EDITION TP now will include issue #7-12 of the original series; this title previously collected issues #4-12. It is scheduled to arrive in stores in May.

    The TRANSMETROPOLITAN VOL. 3: YEAR OF THE BASTARD NEW EDITION TP now will include issues #13-18 of the series; this title previously collected these issues as well as a story from VERTIGO WINTER’S EDGE #2. It is scheduled to arrive in stores in August.

    The TRANSMETROPOLITAN VOL. 4: THE NEW SCUM NEW EDITION TP now will include issues #19-24 of the series, as well as the story from VERTIGO WINTER’S EDGE #3 and the addition of the story from VERTIGO WINTER’S EDGE #2. In-store date for VOL. 4 will be announced later.

    The TRANSMETROPOLITAN VOL. 10: ONE MORE TIME NEW EDITION TP now will include issues #55-60 of the series, as well as the Specials TRANSMETROPOLITAN: I HATE IT HERE and TRANSMETROPOLITAN: FILTH OF THE CITY. The specials were previously available in TRANSMETROPOLITAN VOL. 0: TALES OF HUMAN WASTE; This volume will no longer be available once current stock is gone. In-store date for VOL. 10 will be announced later.

    These volumes are being reconfigured due to retailer requests for a more consistent page count in the series’ early volumes. Please note that this supersedes the previous announcement regarding this series. Volumes 5-9 will remain in print in their current configuration.

    Can anyone confirm that I'm reading things correctly volume 9 will remain the same? That's the one I'm missing from my collection (my FLCS can't get hold of it) (they're usually very good). I know it's a little sad, but I'd like to have them looking all the same on my bookshelf

    Solicitations are out
    , but there's a bit of an issue

    TRANSMETROPOLITAN VOL. 1: BACK ON THE STREET TP

    Written by Alan Moore, art and cover by David Lloyd.

    I guess with all the Buzz Watchmen is getting DC is desperate to have more Alan Moore work to sell, but this is a little too obvious don't you think?

    So... I have just ordered volumes 3 and 4 off abebooks. I have read transmet in the past and loved it and decided to collect them all for my collection. Don't ask me why I started with 3 and 4. The thing is I read them ages ago and cannot remember much about them.
    Anyway I wasnt aware until now that they are reprinting them. Is there any easy way to tell if I have the reprinted version or the reprint?? Is there an easy way to tell which version I am getting when I order them online???
    Thanks heaps
    -M
  5.  (3315.54)
    *reprinted version or the ORIGINAL. I am retarded btw.
    perhaps if someone knew all the page numbers for the reprints that would help
  6.  (3315.55)
    Is the logo down the side? Then it's the new reprint.
  7.  (3315.56)
    The logo down the side. Yea that will help heaps:) , now I can easily identify which ones I will have when they arrive. The only problem that leaves is making sure the new ones I order online are also the reprints.

    I guess if i am careful it shouldnt be too much of a problem.
  8.  (3315.57)
    I've heard it will never happen,but I would gladly pay $150-$200 dollars for a Giant,Coffee-Table Destroying Absolute Edition of Transmetropolitan. Or if thats not possible,2 or 3 Absolute Editions in the $50-$100 range. I already own the original TBP's,but they are ratty and well-traveled(as all good books should be). I worry that when the time comes to replace them,the current editions being made by DC wont be of as high a quality.

    yea 2 or 3 absolute editions would be the bomb. only because it probably be cheaper than getting each trade separately.

    does anyone know if the reprints are of similar quality to the original trades?
    and will the one shots being added to the final trade get in the way of building to a conclusion properly? (I havent read the final stories yet)

    You're telling the wrong person. I'm not the publisher.

    Martin -- As best I can figure the series will end up to be 11 trades. 6 issues per trade and then the 11th one collecting the various one-shots.
