Brian Wood and artist Riccardo Burchielli's DMZ, one of Vertigo Comics' longest-running series, continues its blistering look at politically motivated war in DMZ Book Four. When Matty Roth first crash-landed in the DMZ, he was essentially handed a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to document the city under siege with a classic journalist's objectivity. He now finds himself adrift, wandering around a forgotten corner of the city, grappling with the crushing guilt of his role in recent events. Unable to deal with the notion of rejoining society, he clings to a little toy radio and just tries to make it through each day. With the final battle about to begin, this is his last chance to do right by the residents of the city he's grown to love.
Brian Wood and artist Riccardo Burchielli are joined by guest artists Cliff Chiang, David Lapham, Danijel Zezelj, Andrea Mutti and Nathan Fox to continue the unforgettable series in DMZ Book Four. Collects issues #45-59 in the penultimate chapter of this critically acclaimed series.
