Matty Roth has been called a lot of things during his time as a journalist in the DMZ, but he never imagined one of them would be “terrorist”.
As he continues his efforts to report on the challenging lives of the people of New York City, which has become the DMZ following a tumultuous second American civil war, Matty takes on his toughest test yet: Going undercover.
He hides his press badge, one of the few things that can keep you alive in a city where violent gangs rule neighbourhoods with blades and bullets, and takes a job with a shady corporation that has moved into the city to help rebuild many of its landmarks.
After a series of attacks and explosions threaten to derail the corporation’s plans, Matty thinks he know who’s behind it, but when they come to him with an offer of stacks full of cash to keep his mouth shut, or even to help, will he cross a line from which there’s no going back?
Written by Brian Wood and drawn by Riccardo Burchielli, DMZ continues to be one of the most gripping, gritty and gratifying series around.
