LIVE FROM THE DMZ Goes To Print -> DMZ Book One [Final Reminder]

Here’s your final reminder that DMZ: Book One (Deluxe Edition Hardcover) is in stores this Wednesday, February 5th. You should buy it. This volume collects the first 12 issues of the series, houses over 300 story pages, features an original cover designed by Brian Wood, and is only $29.99, which comes out to just $2.50 per issue. On top of the price point, it’s in a swanky oversized hardcover, and you get about 30 pages of definitive bonus content, including an extended conversation between me and Brian Wood, character designs, early cover and logo mock-ups, etc. There will be 5 hardcover books in total, with an additional book planned every 6 months or so. In fact, the second is already scheduled for release in June of 2014.

If you’re reading this, you’re probably already aware of our LIVE FROM THE DMZ web-site, which was created as a dedicated venue to analyze Brian Wood and Riccardo Burchielli’s contemporary classic as it was collected in 12 softcover trades. DMZ ran for an impressive 72 issues from 2005 to 2011 and centered on would-be journalist Matthew Roth and his time in war torn New York City during the Second American Civil War. The site offered extensive behind-the-scenes interviews with the creators, critical analysis, and heaps of never-before-seen concept art. For the last few months, I’ve been freelancing with DC Comics and re-mastering the web content for print, curating the best pieces to accompany each new edition of this cornerstone in the Brian Wood library.

For existing fans, this is the definitive format you’ll want to own the book in. We’re throwing everything we have at it. For curious fans, this is the perfect time to jump in with the benefit of “director’s commentary” and own the ultimate edition.
