Here’s a review from the Comics Journal

Gin Palace#2 is an anthology that revolves roughly around the concept of time travel–both in terms of reminiscing or traveling forward or backward in time.  Unsurprisingly, stories by Cassavetti and Jackson are two of the highlights.  The former did a lovely story about going to a bar with her father when she was a child, an experience that was clearly a treasured memory (if a slightly scandalous one).  Jackson’s ridiculous story is about a space explorer leaving behind a life of growing peas who eventually winds up on a planet of intelligent, evolved peas.  The ending is telegraphed but is so silly that it doesn’t matter.  Most of the entries in this anthology are at least solidly entertaining (other than Lee Johnson’s incoherent and vaguely preachy “Sin Cat” comics), with the Sean MacRoibin/John Robbins collaboration “Dog-Eared” replacing wistful regrets with vain hubris–and punishing the latter appropriately.  It was interesting to see long-time Nuwave artist Brad W. Foster in here with a typically well-drawn strip riffing on death/rebirth and lost/found.
