If there was a Reader's Anonymous, my family would probably have shunted me off into rehab already.

My Friend Dahmer

My Friend Dahmer - Derf Backderf Competently executed and disturbing. Backderf, who attended high school with Jeffrey Dahmer, details his interactions with what he and his friends thought was just a weird loner. He is most intent on exploring how everyone around Dahmer missed the signs that he was a potential serial killer. The recollections are tinged with sadness and horror. The artwork is good, although I thought it more suited to the tone of Backderf's Punk Rock and Trailer Parks. The comic style adds a layer of distance--but that may be a good thing. I rated it with four stars, but it's hard to say you "like" something like this. Rather, it is well-done.
