ATR: Youve said recently that you want this title to be the “new Transmetropolitan” in a fashion, anyway. What do you mean by this, and can we expect scathing, satirical, social commentary?
WE: By that, I mean that its a long-form novel of sociopolitical science fiction. By which I mean its a big comic about the future, and about the future as a tool with which to study the present-day condition. Its been five years since I finished Transmet, and I feel now that theres enough new material to talk about to warrant a new novel.
