SJ was right. I freaked out. Yath is gonna give me nightmares. But a cool twist on the seasteading idea! ( )
  KateSherrod | Aug 1, 2016 |
In case you haven't heard about The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, it is the world's biggest landfill, located in the middle of the Pacific. No, I'm not making this up, there is actually a large pile of plastic garbage floating in the middle of that ocean. And that is the main location for this comic, which basically follows the well-known trope of "rich kid inherits father's company, wants to prove himself by doing things better and improving the world".

A unique location, some sci-fi elements (like a device that can manipulate plastic), and a number of stories all coming into conflict with each other on this island of plastic -- that should be enough to warrant four stars, wouldn't it? You'd think so, but six issues into this storyline and everything just seems to get more and more complicated and elaborate, and I cannot help but wonder whether it is actually going somewhere.

There is clearly a great ambition behind this series, yet after six issues it feels like the author is still only setting up the story and I question the wisdom of featuring so many adversaries so early on. Only time will tell if he'll manage to keep it all going, so for now I keep reading. ( )
