Hey guys — Just wanted to say, great work so far; the story is intriguing & original in all the right ways. Two quick questions on how to spend more money: 1.) Are there any plans to print the DHP stories as a (paper) #0 issue? Please? 2.) I missed out on the t-shirts in a size that'd fit me, but any chance you'll be making patches of the campaign designs at any point? Thanks for the yarns! — Jason Hart
The DHP stories will appear in the first collected edition (next month). No plans for a #0 issue on paper. It exists as a 99 cent digital download.
I’ll have another shirt on sale shortly, keep watching my twitter feed. No plans for patches right now, but maybe soon.
I’d been to Hong Kong several times in my life. Six times while with Blackbell and liaisoning with British SAS. One time after the 1997 handover, and then seven times as part of Ninth Wave operations. HK is gloriously messy, humid, and equal parts modern cosmopolitan and medieval. I have an arrest warrant
Now let’s cut to a shot of a huge wind farm, dozens of still turbines in the middle of open ocean. Perhaps a sliver of land visible on the horizon.
Caption: WIND FARMS IN AND NEAR THE EAST CHINA SEA HAVE GONE STILL, AS CHANGES IN THE OCEAN’S SURFACE TEMPERATURE HAVE ALTERED WEATHER PATTERNS. THE COMBINED OUTPUT OF THE FARMS EQUALS 28.7 GIGAWATTS, NOW LOST, AND CHINA’S DENSE URBAN AREAS ARE MOST AFFECTED.
Gifted to Ninth Wave as a show of support for anti-whaling initiatives, The Massive was renamed and incorporated into the organization in 2004. Callum Israel, seeing powerful symbolism in repurposing a factory ship into a vessel of pure research, dedicated the ship to the “better understanding of the world’s oceans and how our fate as a species in inextricably linked” to them. Since then, universities from around the globe have sent students to work/study aboard the ship. It’s sheer size makes it impossible to ignore, and critics of Ninth Wave’s aggressive interventions have pointed to The Massive as a symbol of peace, what the organization should be striving towards, and the “direct action” The Kapital engages in only alienates the public at large.
