In , Jeffrey Dahmer-the most notorious serial killer since Jack the Ripper-seared himself into the American consciousness. To the public, Dahmer was a monster who committed unthinkable atrocities. In My Friend Dahmer, 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 ever really knew, and one readers will never forget. Also available by Derf Backderf, Trashed. Backderf's writing is impeccably honest in not exculpating his own misdeeds. A small, dark classic. Highly recommended for professionals as well as true crime readers.

Backderf's odd stylization, with figures that look like organic robots, is a perfect vehicle for this conception. His graphic approach is grotesque, droll, and it rags on reality as masses of kids knew and still know it.? Lots of books exist about the agonies and cruelty of the adolescent high school experience, but few so compellingly bring us straight into that soulless environment, showing the ways it can shelter, allow to burgeon, and, at the same time, be completely blind to real madness.?

It wasn't easy reading this book, but I'm glad I did. Beautifully done.

Like Alison Bechdel'sFun Home, the book plumbs a dark autobiographical mystery, trying in retrospect to understand actions and motivations to piece together the makings of a tragedy.

Like Charles Burns's Black Hole, it's a starkly etched portrait of the horror of high school in the s. Comparisons aside, My Friend Dahmer is entirely original, boldly and beautifully drawn, and full of nuance and complexity and even a strange tenderness.

Out of the sordid and grotesque details of Dahmer's life, Derf has fashioned a moving and complex literary work of art. The graphic novel format helps the reader appreciate the adolescent mind-set of Dahmer's high school classmates. Although none of those who grew up with Dahmer expected to hear what they learned on July 22, , when he was caught, no one was really surprised, either.?

This unique book allows the reader to listen in on the fascinating reminiscences of those who watched the developing mind of a future serial killer. And it does. But as it turns its self-aware eye on the boy who doesn't belong, the real magic trick is how equally hateful and sad you feel for the monster himself.

This one's still haunting me. I know of no other work that so clearly shows the teenage days of an American monster, long before the rest of the world heard of him.

But this book is about a lot of other things that matter much, much more: the institutionalized weirdness of the suburban seventies, what it means to be friends with someone you don't really like, a cogent explanation as to why terrible things happen, and a means for feeling sympathy toward those who don't seem to deserve it.
