"This issue changes everything..." "After this nothing will be the same..." "Everything you thought you knew about the DMZ changes now..." You hear these kind of buzz statements all the time. But seriously? We mean it this time. It's not just buzz. I remember when Brian first pitched this idea to us a year ago. He said, "okay, this story arc 'Hearts and Minds' is going to put Matty through the ringer and just when he hits rock bottom we're going to drop a bomb on him..." I didn't realize he meant literally. Check out that cover. Big scary mushroom clouds are never a good thing. This changes everything, folks. The next few years in the DMZ nothing will be the same and it all starts today with issue #49.
