    Again, there isn't enough praise to heap on this book. The only flaw it could have is that a potential reader may not be into this time period, or this type of adventure. Merchant Sea knows what it is, and clearly defines itself as such, making it easy for anyone to jump on board for the ride, or stay on shore. Read Full Review

    It's just great, to be honest – the characters are likeably gruff, the action cracks along at a terrific place, and the plot's thickening magnificently. Then there's that dialogue – it's just magic, it really is. Get this on your pull list – there's just so much promise going forward. Read Full Review

    Mercenary Sea is headed in a promising direction. If a few more issues end with danger, only to follow up that danger with no consequences, I fear things might get a bit stale. Additionally, if the individual crewmembers of the venture continue to be secondary characters, Ill forget their names. However, right now, everything is spot on. The danger is fresh, as are the characters, and Im still on board for this nautical adventure of global proportions. Read Full Review

    This continues to be a series that you shouldn't miss. The charm of Image Comics is that everyone has their top books at the company. Frankly I'm kind of tired of them always hogging the spotlight so I hope that people pay attention to The Mercenary Sea, because it deserves the attention. Read Full Review
