During a surprise attack on Manhattan's Lower East Side, Matty is captured by the government army who plan on taking him out of the DMZ.

    Brian Wood has made his exploration of life in the DMZ come alive through the creation of interesting and three-dimensional characters. Matt and Zee are both great examples of complex and fully-formed personalities even at this early stage, and I hope that that element of the book isnt ignored in favour of a bigger-picture approach in future issues. A larger canvas may be useful when depicting the scale of urban degradation in New York or the impact of shock-and-awe military activity in the DMZ, but the heart of the book remains its characters and the very human outlook on war with which they provide the reader. That said, I dont want to sound like Im being overly hard on the title, as this issue only suffers due to comparison with the very high standard established by the series opening two issues. This is still a very worthwhile read with a very distinctive voice and crucially, something to say - and Im looking forward to seeing Matts story continue in future issues. Read Full Review
