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 who committed unthinkable atrocities. To John "Derf" Backderf, "Jeff" was a much more complex figure: a high school friend with whom he had shared classrooms, hallways, and car rides. In his bestselling graphic novel My Friend Dahmer, now also a feature film, writer-artist Backderf creates a surprisingly sympathetic portrait of a disturbed young man.Library: Main Library
