Great Pacific #2
Writer: Joe Harris
Artist: Martin Morazzo
Yes, it’s an environmental story, but it is a story first with no sign of preachiness. The main character has a bit of Tony Stark in him. Worthington is a rich guy who wants to use his money to do the right thing for the earth, but he has other wealthy guys who want to block his efforts. They want him dead, so he takes off to prove his ideas will work.
Image says: “Throwing his life of privilege and comfort aside, fugitive oil heir Chas Worthington plants a flag on the floating continent of trash known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and proclaims it his own, sovereign nation. But he’s not the only one who’s come to check out Earth’s newest, strangest frontier!”
