    Overall, reading Occupy Comics #2 provides many insights and unique takes on what makes up a movement as diverse and vast as the Occupy movement. You would be hard pressed to find these insights from big media who would desperately love to bury this movement at each and every opportunity they can. Smart, well-reasoned, and free of being preachy, Occupy Comics #2 continues to fulfill its mission of engaging readers. Read Full Review

    Occupy Comics #2 is not letting up, it is pursuing a very respectable goal at an eager pace; spreading information and getting to the core of the OWS movement through the comic book media. Getting well-known and rising star comic creators on board is one surefire way to get people reading, and therefore spreading the seeds of change like wildfire. Help support the Occupy movement, or at the very least, pick up this comic and judge for yourself whether the movement is what the media says it is. Read Full Review

    Despite some pretty heavy hitter names, Matt Miner's contribution about his experience with Occupy Sandy during Hurricane Sandy is especially emotional. It really opens up your eyes as to what occurred during that storm and clean up after and the travesty that was relief efforts by the government. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Nat Webb Jun 21, 2013

    Overall, though, "Occupy Comics" #2 is quite an achievement. From its crowd-funded roots via Kickstarter, to the level of involvement from comics creators both indie and pro, to its appearance on the shelves of local comic shops despite a lack of major-publisher backing, "Occupy Comics" has clearly touched a nerve in at least part of the comics community. For that alone it's worth checking out, but be sure to stay for the stories of the real people who would otherwise be voiceless. Read Full Review

    . . $3.50, 30pgs comics and art + 14 pgs text. Busy C- cover. NO ADs!! . . The Occupy anthology returns, and quickly, for another grand installment of politically charged brain food in 44 pages from over a dozen top creators. A bargain for the price, its worth a read and even a subscription, for this window on the Occupy culture regardless of your political leanings. Several interesting pieces of art, craftsmanship, story and soul to mull over. As with any anthology it will have highs and lows despite your tastes, and personal of boundaries, but overall i think it is a worthwhile read for anyone with an open mind.
