The Trash Titan Tumult, issue #2 of Multipure’s free comic book series, Dewey The Clean Water Superhero, to launch on World Oceans Day.

Las Vegas – In commemoration of World Oceans Day on June 8, Multipure, a trusted leader in the water filtration industry for more than 50 years, introduces the newest edition of its free comic book series, Dewey, the Clean Water Superhero. The second issue, The Trash Titan Tumult, seeks to educate readers about the detrimental effects of plastic waste and marine litter to our oceans, while also encouraging the adoption of eco-friendly habits.

The United Nations (UN) estimates that between 5 to 12 million metric tons of plastic enter the ocean each year and about 89% of plastic litter found on the ocean floor are single-use items. World Oceans Day on June 8, a UN observance, aims to foster public interest in the protection and sustainable resource management of our oceans.

Dewey’s Newest Quest: Tackling Ocean Plastic Pollution

The latest issue of the Dewey, the Clean Water Superhero comic series follows Dewey and his trusted sidekick, the Aqua Sentinel, as they embark on a daring mission to thwart the sinister plans of the Waste Wizard and formidable Trash Titan, who threaten our oceans with their insidious plastic pollution. As Dewey harnesses his extraordinary water-based abilities, he stands shoulder to shoulder with Aqua Sentinel in safeguarding the delicate ecosystems of the world’s oceans.

“By using a relatable superhero narrative, our aim is to inspire the next generation to take proactive steps in reducing plastic waste and protecting our oceans. While entertaining readers, the comic book underscores the importance of embracing more eco-friendly choices, particularly as the current condition of our oceans seems increasingly untenable,” stated Zachary Rice, President of Multipure.

A Sustainable Alternative

Multipure’s drinking water systems offer a sustainable alternative to disposable plastic water bottles, which pose a significant threat to ocean health. By enabling consumers to purify their tap water at home, Multipure plays a crucial role in reducing the volume of plastic bottles that find their way into landfills, and ultimately, the oceans.

Dewey, The Clean Water Superhero
“While Dewey captivates audiences within the pages of our comic book, we encourage everyone to channel their inner superhero and become champions for the environment. Through small yet meaningful actions such as reducing single-use plastics, we can affect tangible, positive change for our oceans,” added Rice.

Who is Dewey?

Dewey, the Clean Water Superhero, embarks on a noble mission fueled by the unwavering strength of clean and safe water. As a spirited raindrop imbued with the inherent powers of water, Dewey harnesses the elemental force of water to offer assistance and encouragement. With a lighthearted and witty demeanor, Dewey endeavors to make a lasting impact, inspiring individuals to make conscientious choices for their health and the environment.

In the inaugural edition of the comic book series, The Thermoregulator, Dewey demonstrates his remarkable control over temperature regulation. Harnessing water’s innate capacity to stabilize body temperatures, Dewey intervenes to thwart the nefarious plans of the malevolent Overheater. This flame antagonist seeks to disrupt a city marathon by excessively heating the runners. This storyline serves to underscore the importance of consuming clean, healthy water for overall well-being.
