    I'm impressed with this series. It's quickly become one of my favorites and one of the first that I read upon its release. I don't know what it is exactly about the story, but I'm definitely enjoying it and can't wait for more adventures with Jack and the crew. The next chapter looks to be very different from this issue which is great since the first two are very different from each other in terms of set up and pacing. It makes for a great read and itches that need for classic action adventure stories. Read Full Review

    Again, I cannot recommend this book enough. Pick it up and join the adventure from the beginning will you still can. If you are an artist, study each page and learn all the lessons that Reynolds is teaching. Since the story is building up, Im sure Ill, be raving about the writing in issue 3, and Im looking forward to that issue showing up in my pull again. Read Full Review

    The Mercenary Sea #2 is exactly what it needs to be. With a strong second entry under their belt this creative team proves they have something that's worth sharing. Recommended. Read Full Review

    All-in-all, this book looks set to nestle itself into Images spate of recent close to essential titles the art is great, the writing exciting and intelligent, managing to simultaneously keep just enough held back, whilst surging forward at the same time. Lets hope the upcoming issues live up to this promise. Read Full Review

    Not terribly good no, but it's passable. Sadly I could see skipping this issue and not suffering in the slightest when you pick up issue #3. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Kyle Overkill Mar 11, 2014

    Ultimately if you liked the first issue of The Mercenary Sea you will probably like this issue. If you are like me and did not like issue one then issue two does absolutely nothing different to change your mind. The Mercenary Sea is a safe book that takes little to no risks. Both issues felt like a chore to read all the way to the end. Again, this issue is not so insultingly bad that I did not finish it, made me angry or even make me say I hate it. It just does nothing remarkably. In the same week where as an issue of Manifest Destiny and East of West comes out with issue two of Mercenary Sea there is an obvious contrast of must read and forgettable comics. Read Full Review
