Two New DMZ Covers emerge from Brian Wood’s tumblr.
Two new covers for upcoming issues of Brian Wood’s series DMZ were thrown online via the writer’s Tumblr. The series, which is set in the near future during a second US civil war, is nearing its end with issue #72. These covers for #65 (left) and #66 (right) paint two very different pictures: one implies the separation of two the story’s protagonist, Matty Roth, and his long-time guide, confidant and friend Zee. It wraps up the Free States Rising arc that’s been in motion since issue #60.
The second is the cover to one of Wood’s much-lauded one-shot issues, titled Citizen Zee; I’m presuming that it will tie up her involvement in the story before the #67-#70 final arc, and the conclusion of the series.
It’s almost a bit sad to see the end of this story wind down; I’ve been reading DMZ since roughly 2007, and have grown quite attached to it. I can only imagine this is what Y: The Last Man readers experienced when their story wound down, as well.
