Jonathan Case Dear Creature Release Party
Free to the public
Bridge City Comics is proud to announce our Dear Creature Release Party with Jonathan Case!
Join us to celebrate the release of TWO great books from local artist Jonathan Case! Jonathan illustrated Dark Horse Comics critically-acclaimed Green River Killer: A True Detective Story (released August 2011) and we’re also celebrating the release of the book he wrote and illustrated, Dear Creature from Tor Books!
About Dear Creature: Grue has found Shakespeare's plays in cola bottles and, through them, a new heart. Now he yearns to join the world above. When he finds love in the arms of Giulietta, a woman trapped in her own world, he believes his 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, Dear Creature is the love story you never imagined!
About Green River Killer: Throughout the 1980s, the highest priority of Seattle-area police was the apprehension of the Green River Killer, the man responsible for the murders of dozens of women. In 1990, with the body count numbering at least forty-eight, the case was put in the hands of a single detective, Tom Jensen. After twenty years, when the killer was finally captured with the help of DNA technology, Jensen spent 180 days interviewing Gary Leon Ridgway in an effort to learn his most closely held secrets--an epic confrontation with evil that proved as disturbing and surreal as can be imagined. Written by Jensen's own son, acclaimed entertainment writer Jeff Jensen, Green River Killer: A True Detective Story presents the ultimate insider's account of America's most prolific serial killer.
