As Ninth Wave's pre-Crash antiwhaling ideology is challenged, so is their very place in these waters, as the crew of the Kapital enters a pitched battle against traditional whalers. Meanwhile, Mary is AWOL at this most crucial time, with no indications that she'll ever come back or any clues to where she's gone.

    Please go out and pick this up. I really can't urge you enough. The waters are getting darker for Ninth Wave and the crew is starting to show signs of wear and tear. And I thought that a partial mutiny was bad. Tragedy is coming. Don't miss it. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Johnson Nov 26, 2013

    In the end Callum Israel is finally pushed to his breaking point and the results will not be pretty. For someone who has endured the life of Israel it seems as though his breaking point would have hit a long time ago but now that's its here it's beyond destructive and we see Callum in a new light for better or worse. When it comes to someone who has nothing more to lose, there's no one more dangerous. Wood tells a great story and The Massive is a true testament of that story telling. If you want something non-traditional in the medium of comics this would be a great place to look. The Massive gets my highest recommendation. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Justin Giampaoli Nov 25, 2013

    The Massive is built in the grey zone between action and the justification of action. Everything in this series is conflict and in conflict -- dichotomies all the way down. For a bunch of characters bent on protecting the planet's dwindling resources, the amount of tolerance the crew aboard The Kapital shows philosophically and on a daily basis fits in a thimble. Their justifications are nothing more than their own personal politics masquerading as code. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Marykate Jasper Dec 2, 2013

    I'll acknowledge that I'm asking a lot. It isn't easy for a comic to zero in on political issues when it could instead devote its pages to an awesome showdown between a post-apocalyptic Viking and a Greenpeace guerilla in aviators. (Let's be honest: I'm excited to read that.) However, "The Massive" has proven itself capable of asking and examining important questions in the past. Here's hoping it rises to its own challenge at the end of "Longships." Read Full Review
