Written by BRIAN WOOD
Art by BECKY CLOONAN
Cover by MASSIMO CARNEVALE

Size: 32 pages
Price: 2.99

It’s astounding that this series has passed me by, but the cover of this issue, the promise of a self-contained story unrelated to anything that’s come before and the guarantee of some Becky Cloonan art meant that I read it. And it’s warranted the purchase of all thirty-four issues prior in some form or other. This is an astounding piece of work; Brian Wood is a truly poetic writer – I wasn’t a huge fan of the first DMZ trade so that series hasn’t been pursued either, but this is just an incredibly emotional portrait of an old man looking for answers in the wilderness. Becky Cloonan’s art is as fantastic as ever, and the whole experience has rubbed me the right way so that now I feel obliged to have a look at the next issue of DMZ to see if I’m missing out on Wood’s work there.

Story: 5 - Excellent
Art: 5 - Excellent
