A la fin de l’année 2015, le scénariste Brian Wood retrouvera l’artiste Garry Brown chez Dark Horse pour raconter la fin de la civilisation humaine avec The Massive: Ninth Wave.
Cette mini-série est constituée de six one-shots qui serviront de prologue à la série régulière The Massive (publiée entre 2012 et 2014).
[quote=“Brian Wood”]The Massive is a complete story that stands on its own perfectly well, but once the dust settled on that series I realized we had an opportunity to tell more stories about these characters set before the environmental cataclysm known as the Crash. Over the course of the 30 issues of The Massive, we made numerous references to how things were “pre-Crash” but we never really showed it. We never saw the members of Ninth Wave in their absolute prime as global defenders of the earth. Personally, I wanted to see that, I wanted to write that.
So it’s a prequel in terms of dates on a timeline, but it really is its own series tonally, narratively, and stylistically. The Massive was dark and tragic, with powerful character arcs and, at times, almost mythic looks at human’s place in the worth. Ninth Wave is an action comic, lighter, faster, and episodic in structure.[/quote]
