From the minds of creators Brian Frechi and Ilaria Urbinati comes The Vertical Sea, a tale of a woman learning to push through her struggles in a world where the pressure seems endless.

With a good job as an elementary school teacher and a love for her partner, India’s life seems okay at face value. However, with a chronic mental illness that causes her to have panic attacks regularly, each day can be a struggle. With the threat of having her class taken from her, the pressure is building, and India needs to face her problems head on and take action.
This wonderful story of perseverance is beautifully and meticulously illustrated by Ilaria Urbinati, and wonderfully written by Brian Freschi, allowing India to be connectable to all audiences.
