Although it would be equally suitable for a 28 days of Valentine feature, we’ll file Jonathan Case’s new GN DEAR CREATURE under Halloween just because it stars Grue, a deep sea monster. Encountering volumes of Shakespeare beneath the waves, he decides to come to shore to look for romance, and finds it with a woman named Giulietta…but nothing is as it sounds like it will be.
