Why Matty Roth?
And maybe I’m man-crushing on him just a little.
DMZ is one of my Top 10 All Time favourite books. It’s simply amazing how well Brian Wood, and his wide cast of artists, made this book. It’s smart, beautiful, heartbreaking, smart, funny, gory, and so damn smart. This is the sort of book you want to read again and again because the plot is so tight but the characters carry the heart of the book every time.
Matty Roth is this heart and he’s been broken for some time now.
DMZ just came to an end. The trades are all out there but I have a feeling some deluxe HCs will be on the way – and my wallet will be opening for such an event, you better believe it.
For now, think about checking out the book, enjoy our scripts today, and look after one another. That’s what it’s really all about, right?*
* Wrong it’s about looking after yourself. Then you can more properly look after others.
