    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair Aug 28, 2013

    In a world dominated with the often mundane and generic super hero title, this series continues to uphold my faith that there are genuinely original comics out there that deal with topics rarely seen in comics today and The Massive does it in spades every single month. Hats off to Brian Wood, Garry Brown and Dark Horse Comics. This issue gets a 9, but the three part story arc gets a solid 10. Read Full Review

    Geeks Unleashed - Chris Romero Aug 30, 2013

    The Massive is a title every comic fan should be reading. Its suspense doesn't rely on superheroes but rather the harsh realities of what could be an apocalyptic world if we don't save it. Hop on the Kapital with Cal and his crew, you're in for one hell of a ride. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Schenker Aug 28, 2013

    The ending of this issue is a little muddled and confusing, but everything leading up to it was absolutely amazing and intense. This continues to be one of the best comics out there by any publisher. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Andy Hunsaker Aug 30, 2013

    So The Massive #15 is a confusing issue, with a sort of anticlimactic 'uh, okay?' ending to a tense story surrounding runaway nukes. I can't rightly say whether or not this is a stumble or just another building block for Wood's world. Garry Brown's artwork is decent, and Jordie Bellaire's colors really help him excel with environments and backgrounds, moods and tones, even if faces aren't always the best. Still, this has been such a solid book so far that it gets the benefit of the doubt. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Zak Edwards Sep 9, 2013

    Artistically, Garry Browns art ranges from the clean, simple opening scene at De Gaulle airport to the heavy details of a half-submerged New York with ease. Coupled with Jordie Bellaires gorgeous colouring, which simply stuns at points while narratively guiding the reader. The final panel in particular leaves readers with a beautiful sunset with deep reds to compound and offset the tension. Browns work is consistent throughout and must read beautifully in the trades. The consistent use of full page panels overlaid with smaller ones looks beautiful, filling out the series minimalism with expansive landscapes, and such an aesthetic will inevitably give some consistency to the series trades. Here, the tactic still looks great. So, while the story falters, the art team brings some much needed and beautiful consistency. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Sep 2, 2013

    A troublingly poor issue concludes an initially promising story-arc. I'm very discouraged that this series cannot seem to get any momentum. Read Full Review
