A few days ago CBR rolled out the exclusive revealof the trailer for GREAT PACIFIC, an Image series comics out in November that deals with the (real) great garbage pile floating in the Pacific and ecological issues.

To be blunt, we like this trailer better than many we’ve seen, and the main reason is the great score. According to Harris, he got one of his old pals from film school to actually write the music. And wow…that makes a difference.


  1. Just so everyone is clear… there isn’t a big morass of plastic bobbing on the surface of the ocean…


    “Despite its size and density, the patch is not visible from satellite photography, since it consists primarily of suspended particulates in the upper water column. Since plastics break down to even smaller polymers, concentrations of submerged particles are not visible from space, nor do they appear as a continuous debris field. Instead, the patch is defined as an area in which the mass of plastic debris in the upper water column is significantly higher than average.”

    Plastics break down…into smaller pieces of plastic, which get ingested by marine life. What does disintegrate usually leaves behind toxic chemicals.

    Of the five ocean gyres, three have garbage patches.

    The South Pacific Gyre has the point farthest from land, making it the best spot for an independent nation.
