“Collective Punishment”

By DCE Editorial Friday, May 6th, 2011
The latest volume of Brian Wood’s critically acclaimed war comic book DMZ, is on sale now. In “Collective Punishment” drawn by such artists as Andrea Mutti, Nathan Fox, Danijel Zezelj and David Lapham, citizens and soldiers – new characters and old – weather the storm of a brutal "shock and awe" bombing campaign on the DMZ. This book includes a look at the enigmatic Wilson, the self-professed protector of Chinatown and confidant to series star Matty Roth who has always said he'd own the DMZ in the end. Now, with the U.S. poised to steamroll its way into the city, it's do-or-die time for the old man. And in another story, Matty lends his Liberty News secure phone line to DMZ citizens to reach out to loved ones outside the city – a direct violation of his contract. Is this the beginning of a new, compassionate Matty looking to atone? Or are more cynical motives at play? DMZ Volume 10 collects issues #55-59. 17713_180x270
