Brian Wood is best known as the writer behind the fierce New York dystopian comic DMZ
, which posits a future in which Manhattan is in the grips of a Baghdad-style civil war. But one of his most personal works is Local
, a collection of twelve interconnected stories about vagabond Megan
McKeenan and the cities she lives in, from Minneapolis to Richmond to Halifax. One of Local
’s most moving stories takes place in Park Slope, and with the hardcover collection of Local
coming to stores next month, we’re pleased to present an exclusive excerpt on the Comics Page.
Read the entire saga of Local, out in September from Oni Press.
