"Hearts and Minds" part 1 of 5. Following the tumultuous events of the past year, Matty Roth is redefining his role in the DMZ. No longer content to be merely a citizen journalist or a mouthpiece for Parco Delgado's struggling city government, he now rolls with his own private security force and self-defined mandate to heal the city.

"Hearts and Minds" part 3 of 5! The past comes back to haunt Matty in the form of both family and friends. To blow off some steam, he goes after a Trustwell sleeper cell.

"Hearts and Minds" 5 of 5. The entire future of the DMZ pivots on this issue, with horrific events unfolding not only for Matty and those close to him, but the city that's taken him under its wing. It's an issue so monumental, we had to redact the cover in order to not spoil a single thing...
