“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
JONATHAN CASE writes and draws books in Portland, Oregon, as a member of Periscope Studio, the largest cooperative of comics creators in America. His work is featured in the Eisner award–winning Comic Book Tattoo, and has been lauded as some of the best show of new talent in comics. Dear Creature is Jonathan Case’s first book.
The real kicker though was the way that Case was able to show expression through facial features and body movements.
Although I'm a neophyte in the reading (and even more so in the reviewing) or graphic novels, I would strongly recommend this one to all fans of the medium.
I picked this up at NYCC based on the artwork alone, and the unique writing that Jonathan Case uses in telling the story makes it a wonderful read.
Consider it a 3.5/5
