Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 11 Up -The first two volumes of Wood's politically charged, near-future thriller pushed Matty Roth into the role of an accidental photojournalist covering a violent revolution as Free State armies took over New York City. This one asks him to broaden both his professional skills and personal ideals as he goes undercover to report on a terrorist cell from the inside. With their resources stretched too thin across the globe, both the U.S. and the UN give up the fight to a security company. But Roth quickly learns that Trustwell may not be motivated so much by maintaining the peace as by making money, and that it may even be manipulating terrorist groups to keep profits rolling in. To maintain his cover, Roth is asked to lie, steal, and even send a woman he's fallen in love with to her death. Hence, this third volume is less about explosive action and more about Roth's character and his ethical dilemma. The grungy, gritty look of Burchielli's art seems even more appropriate here than in the earlier books; as Roth loses trust in everyone, the darkness and grime of the city press around him and threaten to swallow him whole. Readers looking for straight action probably wona't like DMZ much, but fans of Brian K. Vaughan's "Ex Machina" (TAG) or Aaron Jason's "Scalped" (Vertigo), which mix in political questions, will love what Wood is creating. If the mark of a great story is to be both entertaining and thoughtful, this title more than reaches that height.-Matthew L. Moffett, Pohick Regional Library, Burke, VA
