DMZ, Volume 1: On the Ground

Written by Brian Wood, art by Riccardo Burchielli, published by Vertigo

DMZ 1 review 007


DMZ is set in the near future, in a New York that has become a demilitarized zone due to an ongoing civil war between the federal government and the “Free States”. The island of Manhattan has been largely emptied, with only a few hundred thousand people left living there.


The art is mostly by Riccardo Burchielli, with some pieces by Brian Wood (maps and the like).

Burchielli’s art has a scratchy, dirty quality to it that works perfectly with the feel of the writing and really helps sell the tone of the story.
