Overview

In the near future, America's worst nightmare has come true. With military adventurism overseas bogging down the Army and National Guard, the U.S. government mistakenly neglects the very real threat of anti-establishment militias scattered across the 50 states. Like a sleeping giant, Middle America rises up and violently pushes its way to the shining seas, coming to a standstill at the line in the sand - Manhattan. Or, as the world now knows it, the DMZ.

Matty Roth, a naive aspiring photojournalist, lands a dream job following a veteran war correspondent into the heart of he DMZ. Things soon go terribly wrong, and Matty finds himself lost and alone in a world he's only seen on television.

There, he is faced with a choice: try and find a way off the island, or make his career with an assignment most journalists would kill for. But can he survive in this savage war zone long enough to report the truth?

    Unfoscused & lacking character!

    I now the main character in a book like DMZ, is the city. That being said, there is no one in this book. We get Matty, the main character and that's almost it. There is no one to root for, against, follow, etc. Also, the general idea is really good but the follow through is lacking because its not very focused. There are tons of stories that could be told as the reader enters the picture and after the first issue time passes too fast. So many opportunities lost. Its too bad, this one could have been good, but wasn't.
