Brian Wood and Riccardo Burchielli’s DMZ inspires people

My copy of M.I.A., the ninth volume to the DMZ trade paperback series arrived recently amongst a box of books ordered online. I’ve very excited to crack it open, but I have a pile of comics to read through first.

People love DMZ the way fans love their Buffy and Smallville. And why not? It’s a gritty story for a comic that is an example of the best of the medium in writing and illustration, about a subject matter that speaks to non-comic book readers. I’ve probably shared copies of DMZ with more people than any other comic I’ve ever owned.

So it shouldn’t come as a surprise to find sites like Live from the DMZ popping up. This ambitious project by blogger and comic creator Justin Giampaoli aims to provide a chronicle of the series book-by-book as the series comes to a close in 2011.

You’ll also find clips like this fan-made opening credits video created by C Rhodes.
