Each morning, a frail, old, bespectacled fisherman heads out to sea, leaving his doting, matronly wife at home patiently caring for the house, awaiting his return in the evening. But one evening he doesn’t come home, instead accidentally snared by a much larger, industrial fishing trawler that absentmindedly carries him across the Atlantic. Back home, the village wonders what might have happened, assuming his death, but his wife refuses to give up hope. She consults a fortune teller who sees his visage in a crepe . . . alive in Cuba. Convinced her husband is still alive, she sets off on an improbable mission to save him.

A Sea of Love was the official selection of FIBD Angouleme and has won numerous awards including Prix de la BD FNAC, and Grand Prix de la BD, 4th Annual Penn Ar BD Festival when it was first published in France in 2015.

Completely wordless, this heartwarming and often hilarious adventure is a testament to not only the power of sequential storytelling, but the power of love itself.

Just a simple locution: eCOMICology™. But what a term!! Powerful and prevailing. With no words, this story from Lupano & Panaccione TRULY touches one's soul. Sequentially, pictures tell you all about drama and hope. In particular, when love's in need. At last we can still be aware of the environment without feeling that nerdy (as usually published for/by hipsters). Wilfrid and Gregory put us on the very right track with these crucial issues by exposing the naked truth: I found it deep enough to pause and reflect. Therefore this graphic novel impacted me both, emotionally and proactively. Since the lacking of texts lead the fluent narrative to a whole new symbolic level, drawings and colours took the place instead. Beautifully designed, this hardback imitates a sardine tin can (another sea-related nod). If you are a sucker for stirring and well-illustrated tales, this WILL be your cup of tea (compulsory in case of art lovers, like myself). #TheECOmicsCodeAuthority
