After the events of last issue, I had excepted something different for the big 50th issue. Instead readers are treated to a bunch of short stories and pin-ups.
DMZ has been one of Vertigo’s best titles. It’s been consistently outstanding and it’s managed to make it to 50 issues, which in this day and age seems to be a miracle for a Vertigo title.
It’s interesting to see all the different artists’ takes on Matty and company but what kind of evil writer is Brian Wood? He ends issue #49 in a massive cliffhanger, which I won’t reveal to all those who read the trade collections, and then he takes a break from the story. It’s evil, pure evil. (Shane Hnetka)
