Great Pacific: Nation Building – Joe Harris

Great Pacific - Nation BuildingThis quirky and unique little story continues in pretty much the same vein. It can’t match the novelty of the first volume but does have a few surprises.

Things aren’t as tight as the initial work and it does suffer from the ‘difficult second album’ syndrome. As well as environmental politics Harris tries to squeeze in Human Rights issues too and that dilutes the sharp insight that impressed us before.

The art is still just as bold. The unique undersea locations provide some fresh angles and the colours, reminiscent of Morning Glories, are as vibrant as ever.

There is enough to hold your interest and see what the third volume has to offer.

Thumbs Up!
