"Marvelously entertaining...A funny, bizarre, unexpected pleasure that gives a creature from the depths heart and soul."
"Exuberantly weird...Startlingly assured for a debut effort."
"...Pretty much perfect."
"...A perfect marriage of storytelling and art...A stunning debut graphic novel mixing an inventive mutant creature story with retro comic realism."
"...An excellent book, far better than an author/artist's debut graphic novel has any right to be."
Dear Creature is sure to be one of the quirkiest and most surprising love stories you will ever read. (Gene Yang, Eisner Award–winner for American Born Chinese)
Every panel is beautifully composed….Case mastered it on his first project. (Steve Lieber, Eisner Award–winner for Whiteout: Melt)
An impressive debut. I dream of a world where every cartoonist's first graphic novel is this accomplished. (Derek Kirk Kim, Eisner Award–winner for The Eternal Smile)

A surprising journey, sweet, dark, somehow familar and yet completely unique. I highly recommend it to lovers of love stories, of Shakespeare, and of vintage noir/camp. Read morePublished 25 days ago by AlisunWonderland

A truly original work - fun and quirky with a big dose of wit. The artwork is incredible, even if the flat black and white pages don't quite do it justice.Published 25 days ago by Benjamin W.
