Largely more of the same of what we got in the first TP, but in this case that is no bad thing. The story takes a slightly unexpected turn towards the end and definitely whets the appetite for the next collection, and the art is of a high standard too. One or two characters are introduced and used without being fleshed out too much and some of the more fantastical elements of the first book seem to have been put on the back burner a bit this time out, but still a very good read.

Oh, it's a "crash", all right... 8 April 2014
By Babytoxie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
THE MASSIVE VOLUME 2: SUBCONTINENTAL continues the adventures of the environmental activist group Ninth Wave as they search for their sister ship The Massive, which has gone missing after the global catastrophe known as "The Crash". In writer Brian Wood's series, the poles have shifted, melting glaciers have left once-thriving coastal cities under water, and geologic upheaval and mass extinctions have become the norm. It's anyone's guess as to how humanity will survive. This book collects issues 7 through 12, which comprise two 3-part storylines. While I loved Volume 1, this Volume didn't do much for me.

Subcontinental - Callum Israel and his crew venture into the Indian Ocean, encountering a seemingly Utopian society composed of oil rigs, and getting themselves into a bad situation. Garry Brown, the primary artist for Volume 1, illustrates all three chapters. This storyline had some entertaining parts but was far too drawn out. Also, it's very confusing, as Wood doesn't explain what's going on until the final panel of part 3, where he dumps the answers into the reader's lap almost as an afterthought. By that time, I had lost interest and was pretty annoyed.

Polaris - The Kapital is receiving an intermittent signal from what appears to be The Massive. Chasing it ever northward, they face a possible mutiny, encounter a swarm of sharks (plus a prehistoric surprise), and eventually risk their ship and their lives in the Arctic. These three stories are stand-alones, illustrated by Gary Erskine, Declan Shalvey, and Danijel Zezelj. They contain some interesting ideas that unfortunately didn't seem fully-realized, and by the end of the final story, I felt as if I actually had less of an understanding of where this series is going.

With Volume 1 of THE MASSIVE, I thought I'd found my next must-read series, but Volume 2 has undone that, somewhat. It reads as if Wood is tiring of writing about these characters and events, and surprisingly, the premise is already showing signs of losing steam. While I feel that the series as a whole is still as good as or better than most others being published, it's definitely lost something. I'll give the third volume a shot, but I won't be expecting much.

A quiet but tense suspense story 21 Dec. 2013
By Adam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a story that rekindled my interest in graphic storytelling. It's quiet but tense.

I have not followed each edition as it was released on bookshelves in comic stores all over. This volume is the perfect way to refresh your memory of the story to continue. If you're new to the series, this is the perfect way to settle in with hot chocolate as it snows outside and get lost in a story.

This story is grounded in a sense of realism. That's something I appreciate about The Massive. This realism draws you in and pushes you to read on through quiet, actionless sequences. It reads quick, I suggest reading two or three issues before reaching a conclusion about whether it's worth it to read on. I highly recommend this series.
