The Big Belch story begins when Big Oil, Inc. causes an enormous oil spill that produces vast ecological destruction in the Gulf of Mexico. In a quest to save its bottom line the company engages in a reckless experiment, which if it goes awry could envelope the entire world in an atmospheric climate change crisis generated by a giant methane blast — a big belch. An unwilling participant in this plan brings it to the attention of a baby boomer couple, Monty Cane and Maureen Able, and their animal companions: Fletcher, a super-intelligent parrot, and François, an extraordinarily lovable French bulldog.

The Big Belch is a 118 page environmental graphic novel with text and approximately 5-7 drawings per page.
