When you’re an aquatic monstrosity with a hunger for human flesh, dating can be hard. Everyone on the beach runs away from you and your only friends are bottom-feeding crabs.

This is the life of Grue, a pulpy lagoon creature who’s started reading Shakespeare and now wants to fall in love. His crab friends think it’s a terrible idea, but Grue believes in love just as much as his cannibalistic urges.

Dear Creature is a weird mash-up of old school movie monsters and classical romance, and it reminds me a lot of several bizarro romance stories, where love and humanity are juxtaposed against monstrous horror, usually to hilarious results. You can check out more Dear Creature here.
