Pick of the Week – The Massive #1

First, I’m a huge fan of Brian Wood.  His work is just amazing, mixing political commentary with pure entertainment.  That’s why I was so excited to hear about his new series from Dark Horse, The Massive which sees it’s first issue this week.  I read the digital prelude Dark Horse released a month or so back and had the privilege to read the first issue two weeks ago.  I can say, it’s amazing.  It’s easily one of the best comics of the year, if not the best mixing action, adventure, some great characters along with a message that’s not too preachy but gets you thinking.

The world has suffered a massive calamity when it comes to the weather, no one knows why, but this is just the backdrop of the story, instead it’s focus is on a ship searching for their lost sister ship, while dealing with this new world.  This is an environmental message for the action adventure set.  It’s beyond amazing and easily my pick of the week, if not the year so far.

  • The Massive #1 – See above
  • Saucer Country #4 – It’s X-Files meets the West Wing, the campaign season, how can I not love this book?
  • Ultimate Comics X-Men #13 – The end of the last issue was a holy shit moment.  I have no idea what to expect in this one.
  • The Strain #5 – Vampires done right.  The series is creepy and has me at the edge of my seat anticipating what’s going to happen next.
  • G.I Joe: Cobra #14 – I’m all caught up on all of the G.I. Joe series and wow have I been missing something.  This series is especially sticking out to me right now following G.I. Joe’s new role and Cobra’s numerous defections.

New COBRA COMMANDER Revealed Today

After the bloody COBRA Civil War, a new commander is crowned.

COBRA will never be the same.

[G.I. JOE #8 Cover Image]San Diego, CA (December 7, 2011) – IDW Publishing’s COBRA CIVIL WAR end today when the new COBRA COMMANDER is crowned in G.I. JOE: #8, and the stunning aftermath will infect all three intertwined G.I. JOE series—G.I. JOE, COBRA, and SNAKE EYES. This December and under license from Hasbro, IDW’s G.I. JOE universe will never be the same, and each issue reveals a piece of this brand-new direction.

In stores December 7th, G.I. JOE: #8 features writing by Chuck Dixon (Batman, Superman), art by Will Rosado (Green Arrow, Robin) and a cover by Tom Feister (Iron Man, Green Lantern). After months of COBRA CIVIL WAR, the kills have been tallied and it’s time to name the all-new COBRA COMMANDER. Marking this once-in-a-lifetime event, G.I. JOE: #8 will feature a special scratch-off lottery cover, revealing the identity of the new COBRA COMMANDER.

The action and aftermath continue on December 14th in SNAKE EYES #8, written by Dixon with art by Casey Maloney (Star Trek, Children of the Grave), as the ninja commando attempts to rescue his teammate, DUKE, who’s been infected by a lethal virus that’s diving him violently mad. If SNAKE EYES cannot save him in time, DUKE could be the last casualty of the COBRA CIVIL WAR.

In COBRA #8, available on December 21st from writer Mike Costa (Blackhawks, Smoke & Mirrors) and artists Antonio Fuso (Wolverine: Origins, G.I. Joe: Hearts and Minds) and Werther dell’Edera (X-Force, Punisher), the reign of the new COBRA COMMANDER begins—leading to January’s status-quo shattering COBRA COMMAND crossover series. An unstoppable series of events is set in motion, the world is about to learn what COBRA already knows: this is a very different kind of COBRA COMMANDER.

All three issues are part of IDW’s photo-cover month, each sporting a variant action cover featuring classic G.I. JOE toys.

Also available on December 7th, G.I. JOE: COBRA: COBRA CIVIL WAR, VOL. 1 takes fans back to the beginning of the COBRA CIVIL WAR, with the first four issues of the COBRA series plus the 10-page prologue from G.I. JOE #0, including origins of the Cobra candidates who aspired to be the next COBRA COMMANDER. Readers can relive the early battles of this unprecedented war.
