From Dark Horse Comics, experience the story of one of America's most notorious killers as Green River Killer: A True Detective Story heads to paperback for the first time. Acclaimed entertainment writer, Jeff Jensen presents the ultimate insider's account of what happened all of those years ago. Written by Jensen, with art by Jonathan Case, Green River Killer: A True Detective Story will capture your attention from the moment you flip to the first page.
Throughout the 1980s, the highest priority of Seattle-area police was the apprehension of the Green River Killer, the man responsible for the murders of dozens of women. In 1990, with the body count numbering at least forty-eight, the case was put in the hands of a single detective, Tom Jensen. After twenty years, when the killer was finally captured with the help of DNA technology, Jensen spent 180 days interviewing Gary Leon Ridgway in an effort to learn his most closely held secrets—an epic confrontation with evil that proved as disturbing and surreal as can be imagined.
Saga writer and creator Brian K. Vaughan shared his thoughts on the book by saying:
Jeff Jensen's journalistic eye for detail and Jonathan Case's exquisitely paced visual storytelling combine to make a true-crime epic.
Iconic horror/suspense writer Stephen King commented on the feel of the book by adding:
Terrific. It's got the scariest opening sequence I've read in years, and the novel as a whole makes compelling stay-up-late reading. Great, creepy stuff.
The great thing about books like this is it gives people an opportunity to read about true events in a different way. It's said that it will easily appeal to fans of True Detective, and will also feature a story by Tomorrowland writer Jeff Jensen. Green River Killer: A True Detective Story will be available on September 23rd.
