    You only think you know this story. In 1991, Jeffrey Dahmer – the most notorious serial killer since Jack the Ripper – seared himself into the American consciousness. To the public, Dahmer was a monster that committed unthinkable atrocities. To Derf Backderf, “Jeff” was a much more complex figure: a high school friend with whom he’d shared classrooms, hallways, and car-rides. Here, in a haunting and original graphic novel, writer-artist Backderf creates a surprisingly sympathetic portrait of a disturbed young man struggling against the morbid urges emanating from the deep recesses of his psyche – a shy kid, a teenage alcoholic, and a goofball who never quite fit in with his classmates. With profound insight, what emerges is a Jeffrey Dahmer that few every really knew, and one readers will never forget. 180 two-color illustrations. 224p.

    A page-turning account of a forgotten era, THE POISONER'S HANDBOOK realizes a fascinating Jazz Age tale of chemistry and detection, poison and murder. In early 20th-century New York, poisons offered an easy path to the perfect crime. Science had no place in the Tammany Hall-controlled coroner's office, and corruption ran rampant. However, with the appointment of chief medical examiner Charles Norris in 1918, the poison game changed forever. Together with toxicologist Alexander Gettler, the duo set the justice system on fire with their trailblazing scientific work to become the pioneers of forensic chemistry. Notes, Index. 319p.
