After the shattering events of issue #49, we start to pick up the pieces with "M.I.A.", a four-part story taking Matty to a remote and desolate section of the city. With no phone, no computer and no contact at all with any of his friends, what exactly is he doing there, and why?

    But this isn't a totally introspective chapter either. The most effective sequences come when Matty ventures out into a particularly deserted part of the city. Here, with no Liberty News chatter and less dialogue altogether, Wood crafts some powerful material that showcases the truly deplorable state the DMZ is now in. The raw emotion and sense of desolation that Wood and artist Riccardo Burchielli can generate are incredible. This is easily one of the best chapters of DMZ in many months, if not the entire series. It functions well enough as a standalone tale, but I'm more curious than ever to see what Wood has planned for Matty in the rest of the arc. Read Full Review
