Still reeling from the Crash, the crew of Kapital trail a cargo ship, hoping to resupply. But the ship, which may be derelict and full of dangerous occupants, is flying a sovereign flag, and boarding it would be an act of brazen piracy. Nevertheless, the Kapital’s first mate, Mag Nagendra, thinks this opportunity is too important to pass by.

Do the rules of the old world still apply in this new world, where survival is the law of the land?

    The Massive plies weighty waters to be sure and issue #6 is no exception. The flavor of moral ambiguity that Wood trucks in here is straight outta Dostoyevsky which month-to-month makes for great drama and greater suspense. So, to quote Mag: "Are you in?" It's as simple as that.   Read Full Review

    "The Massive" #6 is an immersive experience. Readers know Mag, what Cal and this entire operation mean to him and understand what Mag's place in this new world is. This issue feels like a one-shot, but it also pushes seeds from earlier forward in tiny and effective ways. "The Massive" is clearly one of the best books of 2012 due to its exquisite ability to meld high concept ideas with real characters as Brian Wood continues to make comics smart. Read Full Review

    This series has only a half a dozen issues, but it's been quite good so far, and continues to deliver with each new entry to the series. Cal is an interesting character whose story only begins to get more engrossing as more is learned about his life and the post-apocalyptic nightmare he and the rest of the world live in. The end of the “Black Pacific” storyline wasn't closed off in any major way, leaving many more questions than answers, but that also means that a lot of room is left for more to happen to the crew of the Kapital. Hopes are that the next arc brings forth a bit more in progression of the story, as well as good news, as Cal and the crew hasn't seen much of that as of late. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Zak Edwards Nov 13, 2012

    The fact of the matter is the whole thing feels really disjointed, sparse, and I find myself having a hard time getting through an issue. It's like I'm missing issues (but I'm not) or even pages (which I don't think I am). And with the back issues currently away from me, I can't really go back and look at what I'm missing. Maybe it's made for the trade, I don't know. Read Full Review
