Great Pacific Volume 1: Trashed! A Graphic Novel

Graphic novels have a few advantages over the traditional comic books. Graphic novels use high quality glossy paper, high resolution graphics, versus the low res used in traditional comic books. In addition, graphic novels have a plot and usually a decent story line.

This is the second graphic novel I have read, the first being The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, which had a great plot and included well known characters, such as Captain Nemo, Allan Quatermain, Dr. Jekyll and Hawley Griffin, and the Invisible Man. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen also had some outstanding graphics.

Great Pacific is a science fiction thriller. The main protagonist Chas Worthington sets off to the great Pacific garbage patch with his personal assistant and a prototype of his Hydrocarbon Remediation Operation device (HERO). The Hero device can convert oil and oil by products into water vapor.

As I have alluded to Great Pacific has a great plot and includes Pacific Islanders, Pirates, a giant octopus, and United States Navy seals, as Worthington's antagonists.

The ending of Volume One leaves you in suspense as nuclear weapon is detonated by, I believe some Pacific Islanders.
