    It doesnt take a genius to read this as a direct criticism of US economic policies, the relative indifference of the affluent towards the almost-comical disparity in income that has become exacerbated in the past few decades, and the willingness of power, whether in the form of government, private corporations or religion, to utilize its most base form force to maintain the favorable status quo. But even if you dont pick up on the political subtext and commentary, this is still an excellent comic because of the strong story, characters and improving artwork. This is becoming one of the better comics Image is putting out and its only issue two. Read Full Review

    BlackAcre has the potential to be a very interesting examination of the dichotomy between the haves and have-nots. Or it could just be the standard kind of post-civilization turf-war fare, but given the opening of the first issue in the re-civilized future, I'm guessing Bordreau is going somewhere specific with all of this, and I'm on board to find out just where that might be.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Jan 1, 2013

    BlackAcre #2 is a solid second outing for this burgeoning science fiction series that does just enough to give the main character some depth while warranting a purchase. Recommended. Read Full Review

    That's not to say this issue and the series as a whole is bad, it just seems predictable. That first issue had some great writing and hit some realities about our world. I'm just hoping the series moves more towards a statement about the world we live in instead of a world we've already seen before in other stories. Read Full Review

    Despite some lull in the narrative, BlackAcre #2 is enjoyable read and the series seems to be headed in an entertaining direction. Fans of post-apocalyptic stories should give this series a try while its still in its infancy.However, the series will need to become a bit more character driven for it to be worth readers' while.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jan 2, 2013

    For me this series has a lot of problems; problems that I can’t overlook as they have me constantly questioning the story. I’ll check out the preview for the next issue before deciding to read it, but it’s pretty sad that it’s gotten to that point after only two issues. If you’ve been enjoying the series then props to you for being able to care about all of the nameless characters we’ve been introduced that have managed to occupy several panels without doing anything in them.
