DMZ

During the Second American Civil War, rookie photographer Matty Roth gets himself embedded in the conflict's infamous no-man's-land: Manhattan Island aka the DMZ.  Instead embracing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to document the city under siege with a classic journalist’s objectivity, Matty Roth allowed blurs the lines to the point of no return, threatening to fall in with politicians and opportunists, warlords and mercenaries. 

DMZ was serialized over six years and seventy-two monthly issues, making it one of DC Comics/Vertigo's longest running series and one of its most culturally resonant.

Co-created with artist Riccardo Burchielli, with additional work by JP Leon, Jeromy Cox, Jared K Fletcher,
and many others. Published by DC Comics/Vertigo.

DMZ [is] the pre-eminent example of a growing fashion for comics and graphic novels about, or inspired by, the Iraq war.
— The Independent
DMZ is addictive and brutal, and a perfect antidote to the flag-waving Fox News broadcasts of the War on Terror. Wood and Burchielli have created something special that gets beyond the body counts and the headlines of setbacks and failures. Incredible.
— Chicago Sun-Times
The DMZ stories manage to combine the tough, thrilling character of golden age war comics with sharp and complex analysis of the big questions underpinning the modern age of politicized, commercialized warfare.
— BoingBoing
The gritty comic book DMZ lies somewhere between a post-apocalyptic nightmare and a bizarre tribute to Gotham tenacity... With a stark visual style that matches its narrative punch, this grim graphic novel measures up to any summer blockbuster.
