long awaited book containing the true story of the capture of what many
consider to be one of the most infamous criminals in history has brought on
artist, Jonathan Case to capture the essence of the time!
Case is a member of Portland’s
Periscope Studio, the largest collective of comics artists and writers in the
U.S. Many of his paintings hang within the local McMenamins eaterys.
Jonathan’s most recent work was showcased in his critically acclaimed book, Dear
Creature, about an atomic sea mutant in the 60’s whose poet soul is at odds
with his tendency to eat people.
Case will be appearing at
Stumptown Comics Fest, April 16-17th.
About the book: 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.
Written by Jensen’s own son,
acclaimed entertainment writer Jeff Jensen, Green River Killer: A True
Detective Story presents the ultimate insider's account of America's most
prolific serial killer.
This is a great add for Darkhorse. I think he will do a great job with this comic book and give
the right element to the story. I can’t
wait to check this out.
