DMZ “Body of a Journalist”

DMZ volume 2 “Body of a Journalist”

DMZ volume 2 – “Body of a Journalist” tpb contains issues 6 to 12 of Brian Wood’s near-future civil war series.

Issue 6 sets up of a revelation that takes until issue 10 to regain parity. Along the way, our main character photo-journalist Matty Roth is truly “set up”, as he appears to be used by both sides of the conflict.

Wood’s writing is superb and Riccardo Burchiell’s art is a genuine pleasure to the eyes. These issues have a lot more pace and urgency to them, making for an exciting and interesting comic book series.

The trade paperback is rounded off with issue 11, a flashback tale from the point of view of Matt’s female friend Zee , with art by Kristian Donaldson. Brian Wood illustrates issue 12, which is a year in review of Matt’s time in the DMZ, these pages act as a handbook of the series, thus far.

8 out of 10.
