The fiftieth issue of the DC/Vertigo series DMZ will be hitting the shelves soon. Written by Brian Wood the series deals with the aftermath of a second American civil war and the stalemate that exists in Manhattan which now sits as a demilitarized zone that separates the two nations. It’s one of the best political commentaries in the comic book form today.
Artists such as Riccardo Burchielli, Ryan Kelly, Rebekah Isaacs, Fábio Moon, JP Leon and others will be contributing to the issue. In addition to the collection of DMZ self-contained short stories by Wood and the above artists, there will be one page illustrated text stories, by the likes of Jim Lee, Eduardo Risso, Dave Gibbons, Philip Bond, and Lee Bermejo.
This issue will well be worth the $3.99 price tag and if you haven’t been reading it, now’s a great time to catch up through trade paperbacks.
