book review: hearts and minds (dmz vol 8)

It’s no secret that I love Brian Wood’s DMZ. Hearts and Minds is part 8 of the series and I enjoyed it more than the previous volume. The main reason for that is when we get to the Matty Roth part of the story (after an excellent story about a suicide bomber) he’s being questioned by other characters the same way that I’ve been questioning him, about how he’s changed and isn’t what he used to be. It’s turning the whole story into one of observing and talking versus taking action. At one point Matty says something like “The last thing we need around here is another idiot running around with a blog.” An issue near and dear to my heart. The book remains great and one of my no hesitation recommendation comics.
