It is the near future. No one has a flying car. Everyone feels cheated. What America needs now is a Mad Scientist! A city with a secret is shocked out of its apathy by the return of a young technological genius who has reinvented himself as Doktor Sleepless. But perhaps he never left, and perhaps his planned "new future" doesn't include the city. For those fans of Ellis' fantastic sci-fi tales and those who have felt the absence of TRANSMETROPOLITAN, this series is just what the Doktor ordered!
