Review: The Massive: Ninth Wave HC
In the pages of The Massive Ninth Wave was struggling to repair a broken world. But before that, it was the preeminent global environmental-rescue unit, taking on criminals, polluters, politicians, and rogue states.
Critically acclaimed writer Brian Wood and artist Garry Brown go back to the beginning with the Ninth Wave environmental action unit, sharing stories from the front lines of the eco-war in The Massive: Ninth Wave, now collected.
The Massive: Ninth Wave is environmentalism with a strong sense of action and violence. Ninth Wave is determined to save a world that can’t fight for itself. In doing so, they manage to gain allies and enemies. Through the action, the message is very clear “Take Care of the Earth.” Unlike the main series, this volume is more geared towards stand alone stories that do build a greater picture.
The art is a little on the dark side, with the occasional bright spots in it. There is a clear contrast seen throughout the book as the issues change. The art manages to solidfy the story in a superb manner.
If you’re into environmental issues and want a good action story, this is one to check out.
