Set in a near future where a second American civil war rages, a lone journalist is stranded in the middle of New York City, now a brutal no-man's-land. Mirroring current events, DMZ is an unforgiving look at what a 'war on terror' can do to a civilian population.

"DMZ [is] the pre-eminent example of a growing fashion for comics and graphic novels about, or inspired by,
the Iraq war." - The Independent

"A well-written combination of Sydney Pollack's "The Absence of Malice" and HBO's "The Wire" – IGN

"DMZ is incredible. It is addictive and brutal... a perfect antidote to the flag-waving Fox News broadcasts of the War
on Terror" - Chicago Sun-Times

"Wood and Burchielli gut-wrenchingly portray the chaotic reality of life in a war zone." - The Washington Post

" smart, so thought provoking...the perfect mature comic... books like DMZ are the future of the comic book
industry" - IGN

"Wood and Burchielli's excellent series... equal parts compelling drama and cautionary tale" - San Francisco Chronicle

"It examines the political without getting preachy, and like good journalism it lays everything out for us- the good,
the bad, and the ugly, while exposing the humanity underneath. There’s nothing else out there like it right now."
Pop Syndicate
