Welcome, friends & readers!
I’m Jonathan Case, and I make comics.
Ever since I was a small human, I knew that I wanted my life to be about telling stories and make art - and that’s what I do! I write and draw comics and publish them with companies like Dark Horse, DC, Disney, BOOM! Studios, Image, and others.
You’ll find a handful of my books just below. Thanks for reading!
Deep in the ocean, a monster makes a choice. Grue, the sea mutant with a poet soul, must stop feasting on lusty humans and arise to the only thing that cures his hunger: The works of William Shakespeare! Yes - Shakespeare. Someone's stuffed cola bottles full of the Bard's plays and dropped them in the sea. At the end of their trail, Grue finds Giulietta, a woman trapped by fear and desire. Bizarre romance ensues, but when the police pin Grue's killings on Giulietta's nephew, Grue must decide if becoming worthy of love means abandoning the monster he was.
