The Massive #1
Writer: Brian Wood
Artist: Kristian Donaldson

In a post-war, post-crash, post-disaster, post-everything world, the environmental-action trawler Kapital scours the earth’s oceans for its mysteriously missing sistership, The Massive. Captain Callum Israel, a man who has dedicated his life to the ocean, now must ask himself—as our planet dies—what it means to be an environmentalist after the world’s ended. Callum and his crew will come up against pirates, rebels, murderers, and thieves as they struggle to remain noble toward their cause. Can you save a planet that’s already doomed?

* The perfect follow-up to Wood’s DMZ!

“The Massive is a book to keep an eye on in 2012.” —IGN

CAN’T MAKE IT TO COMIC-CON IN SAND DIEGO THIS YEAR? LET NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC COME TO YOUR RESCUE!
