Users who pulled this comic:


  1. I’m kinda bummed that Kristian Donadson is gone, does anyone know if this is a permanent change? That said, I’ve enjoyed this story so far, and I’ll continue pulling this for sure.

  2. Brian Wood posted a trailer for this specific issue here:

  3. Re-read the first three issues & enjoyed them even more, so I’m pretty psyched about this issue & seeing more of the world & how it’s just so fucked up!

  4. I think this series is going to get a lot of rereads by me. There’s so much that’s happening every issue, and each month i have a pretty hard time to get back into the story. But i love it so much, reread the first 2 when #3 came out and will saw a lot more depth to the series.

  5. Good comics deserve rereads. So far, this is a good comic. Hope Wood continued with all of the back story that made the first three issues so enjoyable.Looking forward to the new artist. And if its anything like DMZ (which it reminds me of) I’m sure were in store for lots of good artistic talent to grace its pages.

  6. Dropped this. I’m not sure what it is but I can’t seem to get into Brian Wood books. With the exception of the first Demo (which I liked) I have tried and dropped DMZ, Demo 2, and Massive. Going for one more try with Star Wars next year. I do think he’s a talented writer I just seem to lose interest in the topics he chooses.

    • Try his Conan book. It’s awesome. Give it a chance even if you think you don’t like Conan. I’m sure you can find the first issue, so start there. It’s fun, action packed, and sexy. Pretty straight forward storytelling in a way that the Massive is not.

    • Yeah, man, I’ll second that. I’m digging this book, but I’ve put Conan as my POTW almost every issue. It’s incredibly strong work, & less Brian Wood-y than most of his stuff (almost a polar opposite to this & DMZ).
