Jim Lee Teases DMZ 50
Right from Vertigo's Blog: In February we’ll be celebrating this milestone with an amazing issue which includes 5 self contained stories and 5, what I’ll call, character studies.
The project includes a power house lineup including Jim Lee, Rebekah Isaacs, Fabio Moon, Ryan Kelly, John Paul Leon, Lee Bermejo, Philip Bond, Eduardo Risso and Dave Gibbons.
Jim Lee explains via his twitter ( @jimlee00 ) "It's kinda like the 50th ish of 100 Bullets, diff artists, each doing a page I believe." Insomniacs were also treated to some eye candy. Click each to super size. Enjoy!
DMZ: 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 naïve young man and aspiring photojournalist, lands a dream gig following a veteran war journalist into the heart of the 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 to find a way off the island, or make his career with an assignment most journalists would kill for. But can he survive in a war zone long enough to report the truth? Download Issue #1 RIGHT HERE.
