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 of embracing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to document the city under siege with a classic journalist’s objectivity, Roth blurs the lines to the point of no return, threatening to fall in with politicians and opportunists, warlords and mercenaries. 

The series that defined comics' response to post-9/11 America
