I’ve decided to add a few reviews here. They will be short and express solely my point of view. The same reviews will appear or have appeared in my Goodreads account, which is this one:
The first review will be on Transmetropolitan series by Warren Ellis, which is one of my most favourite comic series ever. 🙂 So, a solid 5 out of 5 stars!*

I have no words to describe how good this one is. I consider it one of the treasures I have on my book shelves. A life-changer, page-turner of a comic series, filled with profanity, drugs, humour, the protagonist’s unusual sense of justice and the writer’s vision of the not-so-far future. Incredible, jaw-dropping visual art by Darick Robertston in all ten graphic novels that brings the characters and story to life. The series grabs you by the lapels and doesn’t let go until you find yourself at the other end of the universe, dazed and astounded. It never loses its frenetic pace. It’s outrageous, bizarre, amazing, preposterous, glorious, obnoxious, brilliant and brimming with entrails, excrement, explosions and journalistic badassery. I can’t praise it enough.

PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO READ IT if you are easily offended or too keen on politically correct; you just won’t get it. The writer shows no mercy to any form of hypocrisy or human right violation. He literally bulldozes his way through human relationships, political games, religious gurus and their followers, police brutality and victimisation of minorities. He’s not polite. He’s not pleasant. He’s not proper. But he’s spot on, and hilarious and obscene in a way that warms your insides.

If I could turn this series into a religion, I would.

*My star rating and what it means: 
Zero stars: Why me?!?  I do come across books that aren’t really books, but brain damage in disguise. For reasons you can all understand, I won’t be publishing reviews on them. I tend to become enraged and say things I later on regret.
One star: Meh… I didn’t like it and won’t be keeping it. It might be the book, or it might be me. I’ll try to clarify in my review.
Two stars: Average/ Okay. Either the kind of light/ undemanding book you read and don’t remember in a month, or suffering from flaws that prevented it from realising its potential.
Three stars: Better than average. Good moments, memorable characters and/ or plot, maybe good sense of humour… Not to die for, but not feeling like you wasted your time and money either.
Four stars: Wow, that was good! Definitely keeping it and checking to see what else I can buy from the same writer.
Five stars: Oh. My. Goodness. The kind of book you buy as a gift to all your friends, praise to random strangers on the bus, and re-read until the pages fall out and the corners are no longer corners, but round.
