And another biographical graphic novel

My Friend Dahmer

My Friend Dahmer

By: Derf Backderf

Genre: Biographical graphic Novel

Pages: 224

Published: 2012

Read: December

4 out of 5

I was very surprised when I started this book to discover it was actually written and drawn by an elementary friend of Jeffrey Dahmer. So after never reading a biographical graphic novel, I read two in one week.  I can’t say I enjoyed one more than the other and I felt both did enough reliable research to be considered biographical in nature.  Dahmer’s story also included a major gap in his story, however the author did not know him then and similar to Cash’s story the public definitely has heard that part of his life. I guess you can say I enjoy biographical graphic novels more than ones of other genres.
