With The Massive's trail gone dead, the Kapital is forced to respond to a different crisis, one very close to home. Navigating the thawed Canadian polar ice into the turbulent northern Atlantic, the crew arrives at the most infamous post-Crash disaster zone: New York City. Creator/writer Brian Wood returns home, crafting another chilling near-future story on the same turf as DMZ, Channel Zero, The Couriers, and more.

    Comic Book Bin - Zak Edwards Jul 6, 2013

    I've said this almost every time I review this series, but Brian Wood and Dark Horse comics are actively changing comics for those willing to seek them out. Hopefully the popularity of this series will help The Massive be the game-changer it deserves to be. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair Jun 25, 2013

    Wood knocks it out of the park once again, as the story arc goes Water World and reminds me of that scene in The Day After Tomorrow in the flooded streets of the city, but the Massive series is much better than both those movies put together, that’s a given. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Johnson Jun 25, 2013

    Wood has done a excellent job changing course from chasing ghosts to chasing death but still maintaining the consistent drive and fight of Callum and his group on the Kapital. Artist Garry Brown's work is a bit more clean and precise but also maintains the tone we have come to love about the Massive. The muted tones of Jordie Bellaire gives the feeling of cold isolation but also sharply defines the time jumps and flashbacks that weave throughout the story. The Massive continues to be a stellar piece of work and this new three-part series promises to be as exciting as it is thought provoking. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Jun 26, 2013

    Issue #13 of The Massive is another strong offering in a series that has been fantastic. The final page was a total shocker and sets up what could be a dynamic issue #14 in this ever changing comic. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Jul 1, 2013

    This issue was an abrupt and welcome switch from the search for that missing ship. I'd be find if that missing ship ended up in the same dustbin of unexplained comic stories along with whatever is in Scarlet Witch's closet. Read Full Review

    Digitl Noob - Russ Pirozek Jul 3, 2013

    With this being the thirteenth issue of this series, it still manages to give off an emotional tone, something that is quite impressive. With a dedicated writer, a talented art team and a penchant for the dramatic, this is an amazing creator owned series. While the flashback scenes look a bit odd, this book as a whole is a terrific look into a world that has sustained quite a bit of damage, and the steadfast few who look to fix it. Read Full Review

    Read Comic Books - Tyler Goulet Jun 24, 2013

    Brian Wood continues to shape this epic tale, and he continues to leave new clues as to where this might be heading. Originally, Wood had commented that this story was going to be approximately 30 issues in length and, assuming that hasnt changed, were close to hitting the half way mark. To use an unintentional pun, Wood and The Massive crew of artists continue to build steam and continue to impress on a monthly basis. There is still a long way to go and a whole lot more to explore with this story. Youll be sorry if you wait until its all said and done to read it. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Jun 26, 2013

    For all of the bleakness and despair, Wood's central character's stubborn refusal to give up on the world gives the comic an underlying feeling of hope. Fighting sickness, a crew filled with discontent and a world gone mad, Israel's renewed belief that the world can fixed, at least to some degree, is just enough to keep this series from drowning in its own darkness. For anyone who gave up on the series, or has yet to give it a try, now's the time. Read Full Review
