This is a great read. I was searching for a mainstream graphic novel that didn't, for once, feature superheroes. Not that I'm against them, far from it; I've been devouring the "New 52"s and Matt Fraction's Hawkeye - Volume 1: My Life As A Weapon is a joy. Still, sometimes it's good to read about (relatively) real people and this is an excellent example of how graphic fiction can be just as involving as text only novels; just as absorbing as TV or movies. It's also grown up, in that there's some "bad" language, all of which is entirely appropriate and non-gratuitous. So, if you fancy a change from Bats or Spidey, or if you've never fancied the superheroes, but like the idea of graphic fiction, then treat yourself to Great Pacific, you won't regret it for a moment.

This is a wonderful book, an incredible book, with fresh, original ideas and a wonderful sense of adventure.

It is also a beautiful book with an amazing opening. Nice clear faces, plenty of detail and wonderful colours. Not the subtle, matt tones of photorealism but bold superhero colours used effectively for once. Great composition, strong ideas and a really talented letterer.

We have seen billionaire young men, despised by their company’s board of directors, undertake secret projects many times before. But never at fourteen and seldom do they decide to found their own sovereign nation on a free-floating garbage slick in the middle of the ocean.

There is a bit of science fiction, a grounding of realism, an appetising dollop of environmental concern plus the relentless adventure of a Tintin book. This is a superb and rewarding read worthy of a Double Thumbs Up!

Always a chance when going for the first volume of a new series but I loved this, the story and art were fresh and interesting and really looking forward to volume 2.

Don't know if I'll go for v2 though. TBC. There was just something that was odd/off with it and I'm sorry, I just can't put my finger on it.
