THE MASSIVE
THE MASSIVE: NINTH WAVE

What does it mean to be an environmentalist after the world's already ended? 

For Callum Israel, leader of the Ninth Wave oceanic activist group, this is the question that cuts to the core of his identity. In a post-war, post-Crash, post-disaster, post-everything world, nothing is certain and ideologies are meaningless. But the mission remains: search this crumbling world for answers to the cause of the Crash, and keep up the hunt for their missing sister ship, The Massive, lost and adrift in the chaos.

Brian Wood's sprawling epic follows the crew of the Kapital from the flooded remnants of Hong Kong to Unalaska, with stops in Antarctica and Mogadishu, as post-Crash ethics and economics are explored across a broken world.

The Massive: Ninth Wave (prequel series):
In the pages of The Massive, the Ninth Wave was struggling to repair a broken world. But before that, they were the preeminent global environmental-rescue unit, taking on criminals, polluters, politicians, and rogue states. The Massive: Ninth Wave tells these stories in a stylish, high-action, done-in-one format, reuniting the entire creative team from the original series. 

Illustrated by Garry Brown, with additional work by JP Leon, Kristian Donaldson, Jared K Fletcher, Jordie Bellaire, Danijel Zezelj, and many others. Published by Dark Horse Comics.

Wood manages to perfectly blend suspense and moral philosophies with geo-political brushstrokes to create one of the freshest books on shelves
— Complex Magazine
The Massive is packed with the disaster, heartbreak, and heroism that comics nowadays are critically lacking.
— Geeks Unleashed
Survivor-types are easy targets to spot, rugged women and men willing to forgo luxuries like indoor plumbing and a ready source of coffee. Wood takes this archetype and imbues it with soul, with grace.
