Summary
The world and characters of the DMZ -- a futuristic, war-torn Manhattan -- are expanded and enriched in this eighth volume of the acclaimed series. Journalist Matty Roth redefines his role in the DMZ following the tumultuous events of the past year No longer content to be merely a citizen journalist or a mouthpiece for Parco Delgado's struggling city government, he now rolls with his own private security force and self-defined mandate to heal the city. Is this the start of a brand-new day via the barrel of an gun - or will this "Rise of Matty" end with the fall of just another petty warlord? Plus, you'll discover the truth behind the mysterious death cult that is housed in the city's tallest building. These violent killers hide behind masks and heavy clothing are always the vanguard of death and destruction. Now you'll find out just who they are and where they come from.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "At the start of DMZ a saga depicting Manhattan as the locus of a near-future war between the U.S. military and the antiestablishment Free Armies Matty Roth was a naive young journalist covering the conflict; by the end of this pivotal arc, all traces of his idealism have vanished as he makes a fateful, misguided decision in his new role as advisor to provisional governor Parco Delgado. More crucially, Delgado announces his acquisition of a nuclear device, leading to an invasion by U.S. forces seeking to recover it. Wood's story becomes even more gripping as the stakes grow higher, and Burchielli's stark, grungy artwork matches the intensity.--Flagg, Gordon Copyright 2010 Booklist"
