About this deal

Their imaginings based on those facts tell the story of a man who, if indifferent chaos had wielded itself slightly differently, could have turned out only to be pathetic, not pathological. Yet, once we reach the end of the novel, especially page 206, the only thing that’s left for us is disgust. Eric Powell is the creator of The Goon, a supernatural crime comedy known for its delectably vile violence and sacrilege. That book had me at work or out and about craving to get back home to continue reading curious as hell to see what was going to happen next.

What does the fact that he denies killing people mean, even when there is so much evidence pointing to his being obviously guilty? But the excellent art, solid dialogue, and intriguing look into a murderer, made me read this in one long 30-45 minute sitting and it was very much worth it. Definite worth it for fans of his, people interested in real-life murder stories, and people interested in the origin of the story for Psycho. Powell does such a good job making Plainfield just a dull little farming town in the middle of nowhere, and all the people seem nice (although we know that just because they’re “boring” doesn’t make them “nice”), so Gein’s crimes have a huge impact on them, and Powell shows that well.

The art is perfectly suited to Schechter’s telling of the tale, and Powell’s real achievement here is in how he delivers the visual gut punches and portrays the inner workings of insanity. They do a good job with Gein himself – he’s clearly a monster, but he’s also very non-threatening, and it does seem as if he was only dangerous to elderly women who reminded him of his mother, as kids reported they hung out in Gein’s house with all the various human “trophies” in it and didn’t feel unsafe (although a few kids reported seeing the masks he made from skin, but they assumed they were rubber because why wouldn’t you?

He’s also tremendous at capturing faces and body language, and the characters here would be memorable even without dialogue. In terms of how Schechter tackles the story of Ed Gein, from childhood to murders, I thought that he did a pretty good, comprehensive job.is a well laid out summary of the Ed Gein story and all the dark and depressing facts it has to offer. so it’s not surprising that he could get away with this, even in a small community like Plainfield, Wisconsin.

Ed, esattamente come Dhamer, diventa poi, incredibilmente, una leggenda nera, a proposito della quale tutti vogliono dire la loro e sapere qualche dettaglio. This one will get under your skin and leave you thinking about what Ed Gein did and how he got there. Sarjakuvapuolelta suosittelisin tämän rinnalle ainakin Derf Backderfin erinomaista Ystäväni Dahmeria ja pienin varauksin myös Jeff Jensenin Green River Killer: A True Detective Storya. The artwork in this book is chilling and amazingly well-done, bringing a time, place, and community to life. One of the greats in the field of true crime literature, Harold Schechter ( Deviant, The Serial Killer Files, Hell's Princess), teams with five-time Eisner Award-winning graphic novelist Eric Powell ( The Goon, Big Man Plans, Hillbilly) to bring you the tale of one of the most notoriously deranged serial killers in American history, Ed Gein.To be fair, I willingly read a book about a necrophile/serial killer so maybe this is all just projection). His newest book, The Mad Sculptor, (about a sensational triple murder at Beekman Place in New York City in 1937) will be published in February 2014. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. In un pomeriggio, nonostante la mole non proprio indifferente, ho letto quasi tutta la graphic novel e poi l’ho terminata a casa.
