The pioneering indie masterwork returns! And here's the first of 6 brand-new, single-issue, done-in-one stories from Brian Wood (DMZ, NORTHLANDERS) and Becky Cloonan (AMERICAN VIRGIN, Buffy the Vampire Slayer), each one just as powerful and emotionally charged as the original run. In "The Waking Life of Angels," a woman is haunted by a recurring premonition; one of a person plummeting from a great height. Seriously sleep-deprived and with only fragments of images for clues, she abandons her life to travel halfway around the world in hopes of finding this person before her fateful accident occurs.

Celebrate 50 issues of DMZ with "Notes from the Underground," an oversized collection of short stories gathered by stranded rookie journalist Matty Roth on location in the heart of America's Second Civil War. Featuring art from talent spanning the entire industry including Ryan Kelly (Local) Fábio Moon (B.P.R.D., DAYTRIPPER), JP Leon (STATIC) and more! This is a must-not-miss celebration of a pivotal Vertigo series.
