"DMZ" by Brian Wood and Riccardo Burchielli has one of the most awesome artworks that I saw in comics ever. It’s about the second american civil war, in which Manhattan is called a "demilitarized zone" or "DMZ".

A comiXologist Recommends:
Mike Isenberg recommends The Wake #8

Sean Murphy is absolutely one of my favorite working artists right now.  Ever since discovering Punk Rock Jesus a year or two ago, I’ve been completely infatuated with everything he’s drawn.  There’s something about his style that brings me back to the excitement I felt as a teenager, reading gritty science-fiction manga in the school cafeteria.  Whether he’s drawing frenetic action sequences, intimate character moments, or big spectacle set-pieces, the man can really throw ink onto a page.

His collaboration with Scott Snyder on The Wake has continued to showcase Murphy’s talents brilliantly, while telling a tense and exciting story.

There’s a fairly engrossing mystery at play in The Wake.  The first five issues (collected in The Wake: Part One) tell a modern-day deep-water monster story, in the style of The Abyss, interspersed with scenes of a flooded post-apocalyptic future, and an ancient past filled with anachronistic technology.  Starting with issue #6 the story jumps 200 years forward into that post-apocalyptic future.  Every issue that’s come out since has hinted at the connections between the stories; trying to guess how that mystery will unfold is hugely entertaining. 

The world Snyder and Murphy have created here is fascinating, filled with a diverse and memorable cast of characters, and is beautifully rendered.  If you think you’d be interested in a sci-fi/horror adventure story filled with incredible twists, brilliant action, and gorgeous artwork, you should absolutely pick up The Wake.
