Outlaw journalist Spider Jerusalem attacks the injustices of his surreal 21st Century through black humor as an investigative reporter for the newspaper The Word in this critically-acclaimed graphic novel series written by comics' superstar Warren Ellis, the co-creator of PLANETARY and THE AUTHORITY.

In this volume, Jerusalem targets three of society's most worshipped and warped pillars- politics, religion, and television. When Spider tries to shed light on the atrocities of these institutions, he finds himself fleeing a group of hitmen/kidnappers in possession of his ex-wife's frozen head, a distorted creature alleging to be his son, and a vicious talking police dog.

Failed to enjoy the plot about the frozen head, but overall enjoyed the humor and artwork. Is not as great as volume one, but still worth the read.

My ONLY gripe is when the artist reuses panels, sometimes one page is the same panel with different smoke lines or with a cat urinating on something.

Volume 2 of this series continues the bizarre world and life of ace reporter Spider Jerusalem. Funny but not so much as the first volume. Still the same great artwork and filled with fascinating futuristic concepts for the reader to consider.
