Product Description

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.
