Green River Killer

iFanboy’s Book of the Month for September is Green River Killer. Connor Kilpatrick gives a brief synopsis:

For much of the 1980s and part of the 1990s the prostitutes of the greater Seattle area were terrorized by the Green River Killer, who left a string of strangled bodies in and around the Green River for which he was named. The case haunted police for nearly two decades until a DNA match lead them to a 52 year old factory worker named Gary Leon Ridgeway who, as it turned out, was one of the most prolific serial killers in American history. He was charged with and convicted of 49 murders but eventually confessed to 71. Police believe that the actual total number of victims could be well north of 100.

True crime books make excellent material for comics and I am really excited to get a copy of this. If this sounds like something you might be interested in, I encourage you to read Connor’s Review or check out a 14 page preview over at Grantland.
