Revealed are details about the events of the crash, including the Kapital’s resupply visit to an underwater Hong Kong and the new city that has, literally, grown out of the debris.

Hyperdetailed world building meshed with forward-thinking social sci-fi.

  1. I really enjoyed issue one, I like that Wood has decided to do smaller arcs for this. That cover is fantastic, I can’t wait for Wednesday.

  2. This is a book I tried to not like because a few things in the first issue, but despite that it still drew me in which is pretty amazing. i didn’t care for a few places where it looks like they jammed in stock photos instead of backgrounds/skies and I also didn’t get the whole pacifist angle when they then still kill the pursuers. It just seemed unnecessary even if it does have a reason later in this arc or in the story. I’m in for this arc and I’m looking forward to reading it!

  3. Had a hard time getting into Brian Wood until Massive #1. In a word WOW.

  4. Really liked issue #1 and hope issue #2 is just as good. Mr. Wood knows how to tell a story.

  5. i liked #1 but this seems like a better read in a trade.

  6. I try to like Brian Wood, I really do. But I’ve just never been able to get into anything that he’s doing. Which is fine; of course, he has a large fan base and sells comic books. I guess I just need to steer clear of books with his name on them, though I wish this series luck…..a great concept!

  7. Great issue. May be the start of my favorite series that he’s created yet, may be because I’m loving the subject matter so much. Dig the little extras at the end of each issue, I wonder if those will be in the trades. Top of the stack for me!

    • I dig the extras too–but they won’t be in the trades. Woods said in some interviews that they’re bonuses for those who read the single issues

    • Thanks, I plan to continue reading the singles. Maybe it will get a nice hardcover omnibus treatment or something in the distant future.

  8. Last week I said that Mind MGMT was aside from The Manhattan Projects one of the best new series of the year, this also is knocking on that very same door as well, Dark Horse new ongoings are really, really good!

  9. This was terrible.
