Title: DMZ Vol. 11: Free States Rising
Author: Brian Wood
New to our graphic novel collection is DMZ. This gritty series imagines America’s second Civil War, a war between what is left of the United States military and a loose collection of militias and gangsters. Manhattan is the demilitarized zone (DMZ) between these warring factions. The story follows Matty Roth, a young reporter caught in the crossfire. The art is spectacular and the action is intense.

As Matty covers the battles on the ground, old allies and enemies resurface and Matty must prove that after all he’s been through that he is a changed man. Will the choices he makes reflect this?
