9781401261351: DMZ Book One

Collecting the first 12 issues of the series about the ultimate embedded war journalist trapped in a most unlikely war zone: the streets of New York City.  

In the near future, America's worst nightmare has come true. With military adventurism overseas bogging down the Army and National Guard, the U.S. government mistakenly neglects the very real threat of anti-establishment militias scattered across the 50 states. Like a sleeping giant, Middle America rises up and violently pushes its way to the shining seas, coming to a standstill at the line in the sand -- Manhattan or, as the world now knows it, the DMZ.

Matty Roth, a naïve young man and aspiring photojournalist, lands a dream gig following a veteran war journalist into the heart of the DMZ. Things soon go terribly wrong, and Matty finds himself lost and alone in a world he's only seen on television. There, he is faced with a choice: try to find a way off the island, or make his career with an assignment most journalists would kill for. But can he survive in a war zone long enough to report the truth?

Collects issues #1-12 of the original monthly series.

Brian was also a designer for the video game franchise series Grand Theft Auto for Rockstar Games.

Review:

“Wood and Burchielli gut-wrenchingly portray the chaotic reality of life in a war zone.” — THE WASHINGTON POST
 
“DMZ is incredible. It is addictive and brutal — a perfect antidote to the flag-waving Fox News broadcasts of the War on Terror.”
— CHICAGO SUN TIMES
 
“The dramatic images recall the nightly news, and the stories of war-zone life ring true. Grade: A-”
— ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
 
"Burchielli's outstanding art really sells the story by intensifying familiar urban grunge into a Third World-like battle zone... This book is a disturbing, challenging success."
— PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
 
"Wood's captivating series... combines the thrill of a summer blockbuster with the dire realities of war and dose of social/political commentary. Must-see series!"
— USA TODAY
