Volumes 8 and 9 really cemented my love for Spider Jerusalem as a character. While cynical and crude, there's a sort of boyish innocence to him that I really love. His passion is his passion and there was a certain page in volume 9 that, as an aspiring writer, actually got me a little choked up.The comic is soon coming to a close and I'm going to be sad to see it end. But that just means I'll have to move on to more of Ellis' work. i.e. The Authority.
