    I'm really digging this series and its style with what it wants to do. I enjoy the way Wood brings his stories together, coming off of Rebels and moving onto this again after reading some his other works in the last few years. Ninth Wave tickles the right kind of thing for me when it comes to this kind of side story after the main series has finished. What takes it up a whole other level is Garry Brown's artwork. There's some real beauty in his designs and camera angles used this time around that has me really loving what he does. Bellaire's color design is also strong here, especially with so much of it in the deep woods hitting the right kind of color palette used. It's a beautiful looking book in a way that you wouldn't normally think of for a series like this and that continues to be very engaging.. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is a decent tale which I think will work better as part of a collective whole rather than as the stand-alone issue being reviewed. Knowing that there is such a large body of work that this is meant to precede, I cant help but wonder what nuances in the story I may have missed. I dont know the characters; I dont know the history (future?) but it will definitely be interesting to see how these six issues pan out. Its a thought-provoking book but it hasnt made me go “wow”. Not yet, anyway. It may be that the prequels do grab my interest and lead me to the Massive, but its not tempting me yet. That said, there are still four more issues to go after this one, so who knows? Read Full Review

    Overall, this issue is not as exciting as the first one. It is still a good story, but it would benefit readers to start with the first one before reading this one, or they may not get into the series. Read Full Review
