Matty Roth has been faced with numerous challenges, but for the first time ever, he's faced with rejection, as his story on a revolutionary is rejected by all news agencies. Rejection he can handle, but it's a surprise phone call that just might send Matty over the edge. "Blood in the Game" part 2.

    I've written a fair amount of DMZ reviews in my time with IGN, but if there were ever one book in which I had no difficulties coming up with new things to say, this one is it. In fact, it seems that the book is geared towards doing just that, as month to month, DMZ gives people something to think and debate over. Even better, Wood, who is infamously opinionated, still manages to present these stories in a fair and balanced manner, never truly pushing his own beliefs but rather exploring both sides of a multitude of complex issues. It's hard and perhaps irresponsible to forecast the future, but if this series continues to produce at such a high level, it could easily go down as one of the best Vertigo titles of all time.

    "DMZ" is perhaps too reliant on the insubstantial Matty Roth, but at least its about something. It's not an allegory, but its thematic concerns about the convergence of media, business, and the military are relevant today. Deep and meaningfully relevant, not relevant in a way that will seem dated in a year. Brian Wood isn't afraid to play around in the world of ideas, and he clearly has something to say about them. His authorial voice is stronger than his protagonist's, though, and therein lies the main fault. Read Full Review
