What do you get when you have a sea monster that is inspired by Shakespeare to stop being such a monster and start loving? Dear Creature answers that, and with overall mixed results. It's part noir, part love story, part Beach Blanket Bingo, part mystery, so it's mostly all over the place, and that's ultimately detrimental. I love ambitious books, especially when they're graphic novels, but this one was perhaps too ambitious and felt unfocused even though the plot was tight.

Overall, a disappointment, but not necessarily in a bad way.
