Beautiful, monstrous, graceful, sinister, coy, sensual, shy, aggressive... these are only a few of the adjectives for mermaids that have captured the imaginations of people all over the world for centuries. But despite the differences of particular details, how is it that so many cultures have similar general descriptions of the same creature? Civilizations of people across the globe who haven't had contact with each other, yet share amazingly similar stories?
With only 5% of our Earth's oceans explored by humans, perhaps there are amazing secrets hidden within that unexplored 95%. Mysterious and intriguing secrets that only a few lucky people can even hope to catch a glimpse of in their lifetime.
Writer B. Alex Thompson and artist Nenad Cviticanin created Surfacing in order for readers to find the stories of these lucky (or unlucky) individuals.
