In the near future, America's worst nightmare has come true. With military adventurism overseas bogging down the Army and National Guard, the U.S. government mistakenly neglects the very real threat of anti-establishment militias scattered across the 50 states. Like a sleeping giant, Middle America rises up and violently pushes its way to the shining seas, coming to a standstill at the line in the sand--Manhattan or, as the world w kws it, the DMZ. In this volume, journalist Matty Roth redefines his role in the DMZ, rolling with a private security force and self-defined mandate to heal the city. But is this the start of a brand-new day - or will this Rise of Matty end with the fall of just ather petty warlord? Then, Matty retreats into self-exile forces to take a good, hard look at himself and his conduct since he entered the DMZ, and he doesn't like what he sees.Collects DMZ #45-59.
