The TRANSHUMAN trade paperback is out at last! It's a funny and ironic take on the future of humanity and the companies that make it possible (or impossible) treated as a documentary. 
It's written by Jonathan Hickman so you know it's good. As for the art popmatters.com said: "The filmic, documentary style of the book is beautifully reinforced by the artwork of JM Ringuet. Its integrity in its approach to realistic lighting and the use of subtly different frames in sequence, along with images presented as photographs, security camera footage and archival interviews, all make for a consistent and effective impression of handheld, digital camerawork and an engrossing reading experience." http://www.popmatters.com/pm/review/66777-transhuman-1-4/
