After the war, Matty writes a book on his experiences in the DMZ from his jail cell. At the end, he pleads with the reader that if his words have moved them in any way or even just piqued their curiosity, to visit New York City for themselves, see how beautiful it is after being rebuilt, and to never forget where it comes from, the DMZ as it was during his time there. The entire final issue is an unnamed reader doing exactly that.
