March 20th marks the launch of The Massive Volume 1, from Dark Horse Comics and New York Times best-selling author Brian Wood. To commemorate this release, Mr. Wood will be doing a virtual signing with the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund from now until March 31st!
What this means is that if you donate to the CBLDF using this link right here before the end of the month, you can request a personalized copy of The Massive, Mr. Wood’s latest opus!
From the Dark Horse website: “In this first volume of Brian Wood’s new, sprawling postapocalyptic epic, follow the crew of the Kapital from the flooded remnants of Hong Kong to Unalaska, with stops in Antarctica and Mogadishu, as post-Crash ethics and economics are explored across a broken world. Collecting issues #1–#6 of the series, plus three eight-page stories from Dark Horse Presents.”
The Massive is a fascinating read, continuing the tension and the dystopian themes of DMZ, but this time on a global scale. Featuring beautifully evocative art by Kristian Donaldson and Garry Brown, it is a terrific series from one of comics’ most popular storytellers. This is a great opportunity to check it out, or if you are already a fan, to get your copy of the trade paperback personalized by the author himself!
In related news, Mr. Wood will be appearing at The Strand in New York City on the release date of March 20th for a discussion about The Massive with CBLDF Deputy Director Alex Cox. If you are in the NYC area, come by and check it out! Details here.
