    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Mar 6, 2013

    I don’t know if this series is going to have its down issues or filler issues, but I do know that it surprises me month after month. I have no idea what Chas is going to do in the next issue, but I bet that it’s something pretty spectacular. Part of me hopes that he aims the hero device at the new threat he’s facing and we all get to see what happens, but I think the real outcome will be far better. Again, any doubt I had about this comic are gone. I’m in love with this story and this series. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Hansel Moreno Mar 5, 2013

    Martin Morazzo and Tiza Studio maintain the high quality I've come to expect from their collaboration. This issue is peppered with action and both Martin and the studio's work really rocks! One of my favorite panels is a wind blown, grime covered Chas with an "Oh Sh--" expression defined on his face. Read Full Review

    If you missed out on this series, good luck finding the original sold out issues. Make sure you don’t miss the TPB coming out May 14. With titles Saga & Chew, Great Pacific is one unique series from Image that I simply cannot avoid. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima Mar 6, 2013

    It's funny how nothing actually happens in this issue (in terms of action) and yet, so much happens here. There is not only a lot of character development, but also an interesting introduction to a variety of different characters and groups who are all equally invested in the same thing: New Texas (or at least what's on it). What we get is an interesting story and an issue that pushes the plot really far, ending on a serious cliff hanger that will leave readers yearning for more. The great story is paired with some very beautiful (and very telling) art by Martin Morazzo making this issue one you will definitely want to pick up. So far, one of the best issues in this series, hands down. Finally, while I don't recommend starting here, this is an easy place to pick up the story and follow along. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Apr 20, 2015

    I'm still not sure of what the grand plan is for Great Pacific at this point. There are so many ways it can go but it seems to be digging into all of these odd little turns instead while drawing together to some point that will likely establish things more. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Your Friendly Neighborhood Brady Mar 8, 2013

    I was sad to see the introduction and demise of Mungo all in one issue. You can never have enough Mungos in my opinion. The last page made me laugh and have that shock-and-awe moment at the same time. I have no idea how a boy with an island of garbage and one magic trick up his sleeve can out manoeuver what is staring him in the face. That makes me excited to see what Harris and Morazzo will do next. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Andy Hunsaker Mar 12, 2013

    Some comic books have enough artistic pizzazz to command you to own them in print form. Great Pacific seems like one of those books you'd rather get digitally " you still want it enough to follow the story, but it's not going to be something you pass on to your kids or anything.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Zac Boone Mar 6, 2013

    As I said, Great Pacificstarted off with a great concept, but seems to have lost direction. Maybe now that certain subplots are sufficiently progressed, Joe Harris can really get us moving again. Morazzo is generally on top of his game, but could jump up into another tier if he could only break a few habits. Read Full Review
