It's the near future. No-one has their 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 fans of Ellis' fantastic sci-fi tales and have missed the absence of Transmetropolitan, this series is what the Doktor ordered!
