DMZ #30

Blood in the Game: Chapter 2
By Brian Wood (writer) and Riccardo Burchielli (artist)

The story continues to focus on the politicization of the media. Parco Delgado and Matty discuss the topic as Parco seeks to convince him that the unbiased journalist is a thing of the past or a lie. Feeling pressure from both sides, Liberty Media (his employer) and Delgado, he picks a side.

Ricardo Burchielli's art continues to depict war-torn Manhattan using very few straight lines. Instead of grounding Manhattan in the grid of streets he focuses on the denizens and draws the multicultural stew of people very fluidly.

DMZ is published by Vertigo, an imprint of DC Comics.
