The Island: Chapter One
by Brian Wood (writer) and Kristian Donaldson (artist)
Matty makes a trip to Staten Island where things aren't exactly the same as they are in Manhattan. Federal and Free State troops mingle instead of trading bullets. The cease fire seems mutually beneficial to all but how long can it last? How long until one side or the other seeks to take advantage?
As rough around the edges as regular artist Ricardo Burchielli art can be it is still jarring to read a DMZ story drawn by someone else. Kristian Donaldson's pages have blockier, more cartoony look to them. I could get used it if he was the regular artist but it definitely wouldn't be the same.
DMZ is published by Vertigo, an imprint of DC Comics.
