    I didn't think the creative team would be able to deliver a second issue equally as strong as the first but they did. In this fantastic second issue, the creative team explores the central character's personality without explicitly and directly delving into it directly. Here, we see that he is faced with some rather unusual circumstances that will force him to make some rather rash decisions. Still, very interesting stuff. I love the way this story feels grounded and based on reality to a certain extent; I think it really adds to its uniqueness. The art and story are very complimentary and the book is not only well written, but beautifully illustrated as well. I highly recommend this series (and recommend that you begin with the first issue) to anyone looking for something very different. Read Full Review

    We’re only at the 2nd issue, but I can tell that is and will continue to be a very special series. I’ve seen some LCS that still carry copies of the 1st issue, so if you act now, you should pick it up pronto. You won’t regret it. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Apr 14, 2015

    Great Pacific is playing in a loose kind of way while acknowledging the reality of the world with some of the things it references and how other nations will react. What I continue to like is that Chas is definitely playing in a big way with things, a kind of youthful idealism and hopefulness, combined with the uncertainty of youth but also really executing things in a way that has him as a young genius of sorts. I'm unsure of what his real goal is, which is fine, though I'm hoping for more teases to see whether it's a move that I want to support or not. The island itself is interesting and I'm really curious about what will happen internationally in a political sense, but also see what can be explored with those that are already visiting the island that Chas didn't quite expect.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Zac Boone Dec 5, 2012

    Great Pacific is still young, but is already finding its footing. The problems it has could be handled with relative ease, and then we'll have another Image book that's a force to be reckoned with. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Brandon Dingess Dec 5, 2012

    "Great Pacific" will never be my favorite book, but if future installments can maintain the pace of issue No. 2 with a cool twist or sea monster here and there, then I'll definitely add it to my informal list of occasional reads. This was a good issue that told an interesting story, and I would encourage anyone disaffected by the first issue to check out this one. Openings sometimes suffer by the sheer weight of what they're trying to accomplish-invent a world, introduce and establish the characters, provide an interesting situation or predicament-but it's nice to see a book recover from that initial stumble and settle into what looks to be a nice trot. 3.5 stars.

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Dec 5, 2012

    If you haven't read "Great Pacific" #1 (which has sold out at the distributor level although a second print is also hitting stores), I'd say to just start with "Great Pacific" #2 to get a better idea of what the series will hopefully be like. It's sold me on the series much more than the actual debut; I understand why they went the way they did but this is none the less a much better comic. Based on "Great Pacific" #2, I'd say to check this series out. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Andy Hunsaker Dec 7, 2012

    Still, Great Pacific has enough great ideas in it that I'm on board to see where it goes. Something about the pioneer spirit is engaging, even if it's a mess of complications and nastiness on a trash heap instead of braving the wild west. To be fair, it was a mess of complications and nastiness back then, too - and we're about to see all that echoed in this series. Should be compelling reading. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Christof Bogacs Dec 8, 2012

    Overall, I did enjoy Great Pacific #2;not a lot mind you, but enough to make me want to keep reading. Even with all its artistic and writing issues this book really does contain a certain spark of potential that makes it hard to put down. Read Full Review

    Geekality - Joe Sarnicola Dec 6, 2012

    I still have a hard time taking this book seriously. I think it needs to let the readers know this is a book intended to have fun while talking about serious issues, such as corporate greed, big government and world pollution. It just hasn't found the right balance yet. I don't give up easily. Read Full Review
