Things become interesting when a comic book adaptation comes to screen.
However, The recently released TV series DMZ has been criticized for not being loyal to the DC/Vertigo comic book.
The American Dystopian series was released on March 17, 2022, with its four episodes on HBO MAX.
Roberto Patino created the miniseries based on the 2005 published comic book series of the same name by Brian Wood and Riccardo Burchielli.
Ava DuVernay and Ernest Dickerson directed the drama series, following alternate history.
The series features American actress and producer Rosario Dawson; she is known for various roles in other comic books adaptations, including parts like Batgirl in the lego batman movie, and portraying Ahsoka Tano in the second season of The Mandalorian, and is set to star in the upcoming Disney plus original series Ahsoka.
Rosario played Alma “Zee” Ortega in DMZ; alongside her, the series stars Hoon Lee, Freddy Miyares, Jordan Preston Carter, Venus Ariel, Amandla Java, and Benjamin Bratt as the main cast.
