U samo trideset stranica ispričana je priča koja bi trebala postati film. Kako piše u fantastičnom uvodu, u stripu nije prikazano ni jedno ubojstvo, nema tu nasilja (osim jedne mrtve ribe), nema krvi itd. Ovo je priča o malenoj grupici koja se družila s Dahmerom u srednjoj školi, prije njegovog prvog ubojstva.

Ali način na koji je radnja prezentirana nekako uspjeva biti strašnija i jezovitija od fikcije pune nasilja i ubijanja, jednostavno se uvlači pod kožu.

Efikasan crtež, fantastičan tekst, ma

Good read. Too short and a bit melodramatic, but a graceful treatment of a difficult topic. Would have liked to hear more about Dahmer's family circumstances.

Great book. Interesting to learn more about how someone turns into a killer. It gave a little glimpse into Jeffrey Dahmer's teen years without being gratuitous.

"This is the grand finale of a life poorly spent and the end result is just overwhelmingly depressing....A sick, pathetic, miserable life story, that's all it is." This is a quote from Jeff Dahmer himself and fitting as a review. Interesting read, especially the pages of footnotes telling how the info was obtained.
It may sound strange to say this, but I wished this GN was longer. Beyond creepy, but a very interesting look at the formative years of a serial killer.
