I wasn't sure what to expect, going into this. I'd had it highly recommended to me, but didn't even flip through it prior to purchasing it. I took it on faith, based on that recommendation.

Really glad I did. This is not a book I would have picked up on my own, because, out of context, the art simply would have turned me right off.

Instead, I experienced the art and the narrative together as I went through the story. And I've got to say, as horrifying a being as Dahmer was, this story does something I was completely not expecting.

It humanized Dahmer for me.

I was that outsider in school. The one that would make a fool of himself for a little bit of positive attention. The one who's parents were more concerned with everything that wasn't me. I few slips of DNA strands, and I might have been Dahmer.

I don't say any of it absolves him of all the hate and scorn that was quite rightly heaped upon him, but it does cast him in a different life. The boy inside the monster.

Excellent story. ( )

De bon goût? Peut-être pas. Comic d'une laideur délibérée où l'auteur évoque ses highschool days en compagnie d'un triste marginal qui plus tard deviendra un tueur en série célèbre. Après coup, évidemment, Blackderf trouve les signes n'ont pas manqué. Ah ça pour prédire le passé il y a du monde. Plus intéressant, le portrait d'un milieu adolescent sordide, cruel et ridicule. C'est plutôt rassurant de se dire qu'on est sorti de cette auberge, l'avenir n'est pas nécessairement radieux mais au moins je ne serais plus jamais adolescent, même si parfois je fais des cauchemars où je le suis à nouveau.

Dark and frightening. A deeply unsettling story. What happens to the social outcasts we went to school with? They don't all end up like Dahmer, thankfully, but it does make me wonder about some of the kids I went to school with. ( )

You must read this. Especially if you don't care for or are unexperienced with graphic novels. It's as good as they get. ( )

Series Info/Source: This is a stand alone book that I got from the library.

Story (4/5): This was a weird one. It’s basically written by a guy who went to school with Dahmer and talks about Dahmer’s interactions with his classmates and his home life. This is a graphic novel I always thought looked interesting but kept passing up. I was trying to get caught up on my graphic novel reading challenge so I reserved it at my library.

This provides interesting insight into Dahmer and how he grew up. It isn’t really a sympathetic look into Dahmer but does highlight the fact that Dahmer knew he had a problem early on but couldn’t get help from the adults around him. The irresponsibility of the adults in Dahmer’s life is a heavy theme throughout.

Characters (4/5): The main people discussed here are, of course, Dahmer, as well as the small group of friends he hangs around with. It was intriguing to see how Dahmer started off and how he actually knew he had issues and tried to dull those feelings with alcohol for a number of years. What amazed me was how self-absorbed a lot of adults were and how even the teachers didn’t seem to care that Dahmer was perpetually drunk in school as long as he didn’t cause issues. Dahmer was also gay in a time when that was really not accepted which led to his isolation.

Setting (4/5): This is set in the 70’s (the decade I was born in) and it was intriguing to see how things have changed since then. The setting in school has changed quite a bit since then, as well as how kids interact with each other. In a way Dahmer being in high school during this era was the perfect storm to make him the monster he became.

Writing/Drawing Style (4/5): No complaints about the drawing or writing here, both are well done, engaging, and easy to follow. I think Backderf does a good job of explaining the atmosphere and people Dahmer grow up with without spending too much speculating on the causes for Dahmer’s behaviors. I also think he did a good job portraying the grief he has for the path his old friend ended up on without seeming overly sympathetic.

My Summary (4/5): Overall this was well done and interesting, if not a completely comfortable, read. While it’s not something I would read twice, I am glad I read it. It provides some interesting background on Dahmer and gives a glimpse back into a different era. ( )
