A hard time for Matty sees the end of a naïve idea of an independent New York in the worse possible way. I read the comic books #44 to #59 that are covered by this Deluxe Edition. The final volume in this edition, #55 to #59 are ALL Five Star Reads - this volume called DMZ, Vol. 10: Collective Punishment is a masterpiece! Overall 9 out of 12 for all the books covered by this edition though.

Another solid entry that definitely builds towards what I think will be an exciting conclusion. As good and consistent as the series has been, just a couple of things prevent me (yet again) from giving a five star review here.

Matty's character arc seemed, well, out of character to me, even with everything going on and the influences surrounding him. It doesn't permanently alter the series though, which was relieving. Also, there is a pivotal moment that seems portrayed as happening one way in t

This edition includes several volumes which touch on Matty's fall from grace and his return to the DMZ a very different man. In short, this is the volume where Matty really starts growing up. But honestly, this volume's highest points aren't about Matty at all - there's a whole collection of single issues focusing on other characters in the DMZ, either in full issues or short stories as part of the Issue 50. And these are mighty - Almost every one of them brought a lump to my throat - especially ...more

DMZ is starting to conclude a few of the various storylines and I feel it is the right time. Wood let the last volume slip a little with quality and storylines that just ballooned too much for me. I initially enjoyed the series for the more central focused storyline.

Why the 4.5?

Big improvement for me and I think the next volume is in a good position to close out the series. DMZ is an interesting storyline and Brian Wood has been quite consistent with his plotting and character arcs. I'm stil

Rebekah Isaacs, Dave Gibbons, Andrea Mutti, Nathan Fox, Cliff Chiang, Danijel Zezelj , David Lapham were the standout guest artists in this Volume. Wood continues his spot on fantastic writing. I’m looking forward to Book 5, the conclusion.

4.5 stars. Continues to be a great story. The one shots in this volume were outstanding. Going to be a sad day when the story closes at the end of the next volume.

Hearts & Minds (45-49). "What the f*** happened to you Matty?" It's a great question that pretty much encapsulates this arc. We've seen Matty's devolution over four years, and here he hits rock bottom. It's a powerful character arc that's unfortunately hampered by some uneven writing, such as a hit that comes out of nowhere at the end of #45 and a somewhat unbelievable mistake at the end of #48. Still, it's an interesting story, and it's clearly a part of Matty's big story in DMZ. [7/10].

Matty Roth is in over his heads, which is nothing new, but in this volume, the stakes couldn't be higher. One has to sympathize with him because no matter how much he tries to do the right thing, it ends up backfiring. It does seem by going back to the DMZ and refusing to take the caveats offered at the end of the story, that he's finally at peace with himself and whatever consequences might come after that.

Matty goes full Parco in this volume and he has to deal with its consequences. It was always to much for him, and maybe that's the idea. This volume sets up everything in the end of the series.

Included in here are some one shot stories, some good, others regular and one In particular great.
