A JELLYFISH IS NOT A FISH

The great variety and size range among jellyfish, their typical structure and jet-principle locomotion, the peculiarities of three different kinds (moon, sea wasp, Portuguese man-of-war), and the dangerous nature of many: so Waters ""does"" jellyfish, conforming respectably to the series tradition but with no special flair or distinction. Mizumura's fuzzy washes are neither especially attractive nor clearly informative, which further limits the value of an already unspectacular offering. Optional--perhaps geography will be a determinant in purchase decisions.
