is Brian Wood's
thematic follow-up to DMZ
, depicting an environmental apocalypse and asking the question, "What does it mean to be an environmentalist after the world's already ended?"
Set in a post-war, post-crash, post-disaster, post-everything world, the environmental action trawler Kapital scours the earth's oceans for its mysteriously missing sister ship, The Massive. Captain Callum Israel, a man who dedicated his life to the ocean, now must ask himself-as our planet dies-what it means to be an environmentalist after the world's already ended. Callum and his crew will come against pirates, rebels, murderers and thieves as they struggle to remain nobel toward their cause. Can you save a planet that's already doomed?
