I've been really impressed with this series from the get go. It's an interesting concept: civil war in the U.S in the 21st century. The perspective of the 'journalist' is good. The fact that the journalist (Matty Roth) has the connections he does simultaneously seems contrived, the only reason his character is able to survive in the DMZ for as long as he has, and the only way the story could conceivably encompass the enormity of the situation. Brian Wood seems to have thought this all through very thoroughly and he's exploring mre elements of what such a war would do to people, the existing government, exisiting media institutions, the UN, the rest of the world, and so on. I look forward to every issue that comes out and burn through them in so short a time that I seem to be waiting for them more than reading them!
