I’m kind of a giant hippie. When I first heard about the concept of The Massive, “What does it mean to be an environmentalist after the world’s already ended?” sounded like a good time to me. While I enjoyed the first two issues, I felt that the story was coming together a bit slower then I wanted. There were interesting characters and a world I wanted to explore, but they were sort of loosely connected within the first two issues. I decided to give Mr. Wood one more issue to see if the first arc could tie everything together, and issue 3 proceded to stick the landing.

The issue’s basic conceit involved a discussion between Captain Callum Israel and some of his crew mates about weither or not to break their vow of non-violence faced with this new post-cataclysm world. The story was interesting, and by the end of the issue Wood set the stage for more interesting stories that I want to read. Kristian Donaldson continues to draw distinct characters and locals and the colors of Dave Stewart really pop of the page. Until this issue I had a hard time recommending the book, but now I’m looking forward to more stories from the crew of the Kapital. It only took a few measly hours of thinking to make this my pick of the week (also it is the only book I got this week)
