    I can understand that some readers don't necessarily want to read a story about a war torn nation, especially considering the times we live in, but I, for one, am finding DMZ one of the most fascinating comics I've ever read. Hands down, the title is one of the most spot-on investigations into the people, politics, and morality of war that has ever been told, and if it's in anyway uninviting, that's because it hits so close to home. DMZ does not present the small dosing of escapism that typical comic book fans generally demand, but instead bestows its readers with an important examination of both the good and the evil tendencies inherit in human civilization. This book isn't just good- it's important- and should be considered absolutely vital reading to anyone interested not only in comics, but the world around them as well. Read Full Review
