THE MASSIVE #1-30 (Brian Wood / Donaldson, Garry Brown)

En juin, Brian Wood (DMZ, Northlanders) lance sa nouvelle série en creator-owned intitulée The Massive en compagnie de Kristian Donaldson chez Dark Horse. Les deux compères se retrouvent après avoir travaillé ensemble sur DMZ et Supermarket, publié en VF par Milady Graphics.

The Massive est un conte écologique racontant les aventures d’un groupe d’écologistes qui, après une catastrophe environnementale, se retrouve à devoir se démener dans un monde en ruine, à revenir sur leur parcours et à se demander ce qui a bien pu merder après que la bataille pour sauver notre écosystème est perdue.

Des mini-histoires d’introduction présentant certains des personnages ont été publiées dans les anthologies Dark Horse Presents 8 à 10.

Voici quelques pages de preview du numéro 1 :

    “The Massive . . . feels like sci fi getting back to its roots in speculative fiction, instead of being mired in alien invasions, single environment planets, and the same old. That, in case you can’t tell, is a very, very good thing, and the largest reason to recommend this smartly written, subtle comic book.”—MTV Geek*[/quote]

Still reeling from the Crash, the crew of Kapital trail a cargo ship, hoping to resupply. But the ship, which may be derelict and full of dangerous occupants, is flying a sovereign flag, and boarding it would be an act of brazen piracy. Nevertheless, the Kapital’s first mate, Mag Nagendra, thinks this opportunity is too important to pass by.
Do the rules of the old world still apply in this new world, where survival is the law of the land?
