DMZ, Vol. 2: Body of a Journalist

America's worst nightmare has come true. Having neglected the threat of anti-establishment militias, the U.S. government is in danger of losing control. Middle America has violently risen up, coming to a standstill at Manhattan or, as the world now knows it, the DMZ. Matty Roth, a naive, 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. In this volume, Roth's star power as a wartime reporter rises both within and outside the DMZ and the embedded journalist lands the break of a lifetime: an interview with the infamous leaders of the Free Armies.

    Its good but I slowly wss losing interest towards the latter issues. I likedl Roth as a character but I'm not sure he can develop much more. Very political and I guess current for the times. Not a big...

    Building off the previous foundation Vol. 2 continues as expected. Yet where it veers from its predecessor is the change in agency of our pasty faced protagonist. Not merely swept up by the forces aro...

    Great series. Totally believable? Nah. But fun. The art is still growing on me. When its landscapes, its fantastic. But the people leave something to be desired. Excited to see what comes next....
