Here are a few of the recent reviews popping up for Dear Creature.
“…Jonathan Case’s first book, Dear Creature, (is) a graphic novel about a sea mutant with the soul of a poet in search of true love that is unlike anything I have ever read – and probably ever will.
I loved this book, especially the ending. Stylistically, it brought me right back to the days of my youth when I used to love watching B-horror movies like Attack of the 50-Foot Woman and The Blob – except in this story, the monster doesn’t eat the girl, he gets the girl! Dear Creature was a fabulous read that gives all of the human monsters out there (myself included) hope that even in a world obsessed with superficiality, anyone can find true love, even if you’re a radioactive sea mutant…”
“Dear Creature is easily one of the best books I’ve read this year.”
“By combining excellent character development with superlative dialog, and a heartfelt emotional arc, Case has written one of the best novels I have read in years. And yes, that is novels as opposed to graphic novels.
And I think that it should be on everybody’s short-list for the Eisner award.”
