Description

Deep beneath the waves, a creature named Grue broods. He no longer wants to eat lusty beachgoers, no matter how their hormones call to him. A chorus of crabs urges him to reconsider. After all, people are delicious But this monster has changed. Grue found Shakespeare's plays in cola bottles and, through them, a new heart. Now he yearns to join the world above.


When his first attempt ends... poorly, Grue searches for the person who cast the plays into the sea. What he finds is love in the arms of Giulietta--a woman trapped in her own world. When she and Grue meet, Giulietta believes her prayers are answered. But people have gone missing and Giulietta's nephew is the prime suspect. With his past catching up to him, Grue must decide if becoming a new man means ignoring the monster he was.


Rising from a brine of drive-in pulp and gentle poetry, Jonathan Case's debut graphic novel "Dear Creature" is the love story you never imagined.




About the Author
Jonathan Case has guided thousands of lives through the course of his career. As a pulpit rabbi and acolyte to some of the great minds of this past century he has unshelved dusty manuscripts, great tomes from bygone millennia, and made them accessible. Using the collective wisdom of the ages to shed light on everyday problems Case applies ancient insights to give depth and meaning to our lives. Each chapter reveals novel approaches to seemingly intractable issues from understanding pain to finding God. Journey to the Soul is his first published work using the mystic tradition of Kabbalah together with experience culled from more than two decades of pastoral work.
