The Massive continues to impress me. In this issue the crew of the Kapital visit a utopian community made from decommissioned oil drilling rigs that have joined together to form a pacifist “nation.” They seem to be fans of Ninth Wave, but things may not be as they seem.
Brian Wood continues to establish characters in this issue, showing us a normal morning on the Kapital, Mag’s intentions, more on Mary’s past and her relationship with Cal, and also a glimpse into his possibly changing ideals as Captain. This arc is shaping up to be very entertaining. And props on the 3 issue arcs. They really work well for me.
Jasonhart brought up Mary’s “supernatural” side awhile back and I can definitely, after this issue, say that something is up. She is becoming the most interesting character in this book for me.
Garry Brown’s art has a “rough” look to it that works well for this book, but I have seen it better. His expressions and staging are top notch, but some panels looked a little rushed. He and Dave Stewart came together for some beautiful landscape shots, and the last page is perfectly ominous.
My only qualm with this issue is the lack of back-matter. I’ve become used to it, and was a little let-down when it wasn’t there. Hope it makes a return next issue.
The Massive #7 is the continuation of a great book and the start of what seems to be a very interesting arc.

Story: 5 - Excellent
Art: 4 - Very Good


  1. I forgot to mention J.P.Leon and how awesome his covers have been. His sense of design is outstanding and his covers have really added an extra layer to the story and the package on a whole.
