    What The Massive is doing, both ship and series, is communicating a lack of communication, and the series is benefitting from giving these moments of confusion and lack of knowledge as places for readers to identify (notice too how this is the first issue without supplemental material in the back). The book is on a due course, that much is evident, and I'm glad Wood has given us a moment to identify with the place, characters, and narrative itself for future issues; issues I eagerly anticipate.

    On the surface, not a lot happens in this issue as Wood is tactfully putting all his characters in place for some grandiose moment. But below the surface, what makes this an interesting read is that each of the characters in The Massive are planning and thinking something different than the others, and it's all happening at the same time. No one knows what any of the others are going to do, and this provides for some great tension building and reading enjoyment "not to mention, a great cliff-hanger. If you haven't checked this series out, grab the trade (out March 20th! " Tyler) and catch up now! Read Full Review

    Add in an ending that shocked me and had me blurt out wtf while reading, and I was blown away by this issue. I can't wait to see what happens next. This is one of the few series I devour as soon as I get my hands on it. Easily the best comic series on the shelves today. Read Full Review

    With the monthly Conan, Star Wars & the upcoming all female X-Men title, Brian Wood is one busy guy. Let’s hope he can juggle them all at once. Read Full Review

    Brian Wood's The Massive is hitting a major point in its plot, and so far, Wood and the art team are making an incredible book that fans should be clamoring for every month. While some of the artwork isn't as well done as it usually is and the bonus content that used to be inside the back of the issue is sorely missed, this is a terrific book that has really hit its stride. This is definitely a book worth checking out as things are really beginning to get interesting. Read Full Review

    Outer Realm Comics - xMatt Feb 15, 2013

    Things are moving along nicely in this issue. The story carries on at a fast-pace that makes us devour each page with ferocious eagerness and rewards us every time. The art is solid and captures the essence of the issue but it is the cliffhanger that really sticks with us and makes this another great entry into an already great series. Read Full Review
