Review: DMZ: the Hidden War

With 100 Bullets coming to an end DMZ is positioned to become the best book Vertigo is publishing.  The story is about the lives of people living in a war zone, with the added twist that it takes place in New York City.  Wood has taken the high road in his writing by showing a society that has endured under the worst conditions imaginable.

However, this particular volume is not quite up there with Wood’s best work on the series.  It’s made up of a series of 6 vigniettes focusing on members of the supporting cast.  Some of them are quite good and I’m always happy to have another comic with art from Danijel Zezelj, but for the most part they simply exist to fill in some background details.  So a good comic, but there are better collections of this series.
