A Sea of Love by Wilfrid Lupano
A Sea of Love

5 out of 5 stars on GoodReads


A simple fishermen gets up one morning, eats breakfast with his wife, and sets out to sea hoping for a good catch. But his day does not go as planned. A massive fishing trawler almost runs him down, a storm hits his little craft, he encounters bloodthirsty pirates, and gets his propeller tangled in a fishing net. Meanwhile, his wife is distraught with worry, and decides to go looking for him, falling into adventures of her own with belligerent chefs, sleek fashionistas, and military dictators.

This story takes so many twists and turns! I loved every page. It is absolutely hilarious and fun from start to finish, and I felt such a connection with the dear fisherman and his sweet wife. It was delightful to see good and simple people, who only want a quiet life in their little village, thrown out into the world in the most ridiculous circumstances. 
The artwork is so eloquent that no words are needed. There is not one bit of dialogue in the entire story, and it is perfect! The facial expressions of the characters, and the energy of their movements tells the whole story. I was completely entranced with the art, and read the whole story in one sitting.

I would love to see more from this artist/ author!
