rating: 5 of 5 stars
Absolutely incredible addition to the series. Woods’ writing has gone to a new level and per usual the artwork is tight, gritty and immersing. To use a cliche, DMZ continues to pull no punches: War Is Hell. It’s hard to find any work that has more wholly walked so satisfyingly away from sentimentality, even when it comes to the horrors of war.
Who is innocent? Is anyone? Who doesn’t have blood on their hands, just, unjust, in between? The confusion and complexities of war, especially a civil one involving the violent American spirit haven’t been portrayed this accurately anywhere else.
This is the kind of work that shows that any medium, from film to graphic novel, is capable of a powerful message and a story that needs to be told.
Highly recommended to everyone. Especially Americans.
