So I decided on a lark to go back to my comic shop yesterday and see if there were any cool indie books out that I missed on Wed. Somehow I had overlooked Brian Wood's The Massive and decided to give it a go.
Man am I glad I did. This book is fantastic. The story is fresh, the writing is tight, and you get a nice introduction not only to the world but also the three main characters. On top of this, the art is fantastic.
Lastly, the last couple pages are filled with back story on the world and the main character. And unlike so many other books this extra content feels like it's truly extra and not taking away from the actual comic pages.
What surprises me most is that no one's talking about this book. If you haven't picked it up, do yourself a favor and give it a look.
