Creepy and Compelling 28. Februar 2012
Von Word Nerd - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Let me preface this review by saying that I don't "get" graphic novels, particularly non-fiction graphic novels. I do understand where they could be useful in explaining complicated matters to children, but I don't understand why anyone else would choose a graphic novel over a traditionally formatted book. They are just not my thing.

That said, I truly enjoyed this book. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I am going to give the entire genre another try.

The story begins with a brief flashback to give us a sense of the depravity of the Green River Killer, Gary Ridgway. Moving quickly, the story then jumps to the early life of Detective Tom Jensen, demonstrating his sense of duty to keep lawbreakers off the streets, as well as his deep commitment to family.

Weaving across the decades, the story follows Jensen as his team first identifies a possible serial killer is on the loose, through mounds of evidence and false leads, finally resting suspicion on Ridgway. At that point, the real story is just getting started. Once identified as the only really viable suspect, they must then gather enough evidence and/or a confession to put Ridgway away for life. Sprinkled with vignettes from Jensen's personal life, we are reminded that he is an ordinary man who has been tasked with an extraordinary burden.

We are reminded of the passing years through the subtle aging of the characters in the graphics (wonderfully rendered by Jonathan Case) and the introduction of new technology, new babies and the loss of old friends.

I enjoyed that the graphics do not seem to fight the story for your attention. They work hand in hand together to tell a creepy and compelling tale.

My verdict: Read it! Even if you are not a fan of graphic novels, this one is worth a second look- especially for True Crime aficionados. However, I don't recommend reading it right before bed in a strange place.

Couldn't put it down 10. September 2011
Von Jamie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This was a great read. I read it in one sitting. Not that it was a spectacular feat, it only took about an hour. There are a lot of pages, but not a crazy amount of dialogue. The art is very good and does a great job of making you experience the grim nature of the material without ever becoming exploitative.

The writer is the son of one of the detectives and the story is more about his father than the killer, but the way he uses the subject matter to tell a great story while also expressing his respect and love for his father is exceptional.

I just really enjoyed this book.

Great storytelling and quick read 19. März 2012
Von Kevin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I picked up "Green River Killer" after the author Jeff Jensen appeared on an episode of RadioLab (podcast) dealing with evil and people who do bad things.

My recommendation for this book/graphic novel comes from the ability of Jeff to tell the story in a way that illustrates the common denominator between altruists and psychopaths: empathy. Aside from "The Walking Dead" series, I have never read a story where the hero shows no greater empathy and the villain shows complete lack of empathy.

In "Green River Killer", Jeff recounts the past thirty years where his father was the primary detective on the Green River case. Although there are numerous flashbacks, the story primarily takes place in 2003 when Jeff's father has to travel around with the recently captured Green River Killer - Gary Ridgway - to isolate locations where he left or dumped bodies and murdered some of his victims.

Overall it is written and illustrated very well where I highly recommend to anyone interested in crime or mystery.

outstanding insider's look into the Green River Killer case 1. Februar 2012
Von Nicola Mansfield - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Reason for Reading: I love true crime depicted in the graphic format.

An outstanding insider's look into the Green River Killer case which took twenty years to solve and while detectives and officers came and went that participated on the case, one man was there from the beginning to the end, Detective Tom Jensen. This book is written by that detective's son who gives a unique perspective on the case. The book concentrates mainly on how once Gary Ridgway was apprehended, how the current detectives and Tom Jensen, now retired, and working as a civilian analyst for the police got Ridgway to confess to the murders and prove beyond a doubt that he had information only the killer could know. The book starts with the time of arrest and then goes back and forth to times in the past when Jensen was working the case and times when Ridgway was on his killing spree. Thus we get perspectives from both the law enforcement and the serial killer himself.

I found the book flowed nicely, the date was always given so the reader knew whether it was past or present and both Ridgway and Jensen's character's appeared remarkable different from past and present as well. Done in stark black and white ink, the artwork is a perfect match for this type of story and Case has captured the unremarkableness of the "ordinary guy" many serial killers appear to be to others. A fantastic read, a great introduction to the case, and a great new media through which to experience the case for those familiar with it. Recommended!

The killer and the cop 13. Dezember 2011
Von Sam Quixote - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is the true crime story of Gary Ridgway, aka the Green River Killer, who murdered a number of women in Seattle starting in the 80s and remains one of the most notorious serial killers in history.

The detective tasked with bringing the killer to justice is the author's father, Tom Jensen (who looks like Commissioner Gordon), who sees the case through to its remarkable conclusion in 2003 when Ridgway was finally apprehended thanks to DNA evidence taken in 1987, and in order to bargain his fate from death to life imprisonment, he was moved into a bunker to live separate from other prisoners, with police around him at all times, to provide information on more women who were missing and whether he killed them and where he buried them.

The book is a fascinating and grim look at this sad, disturbed psychopath and the terror he wrought upon scores of victims. Despite Ridgway's confessions, many of the missing women he claimed to have killed were never found and remain unknown to day. Ridgway himself is still alive serving 48 life sentences for his crimes.

Jeff Jensen does a fine job of telling this complicated case through the life of his father, for whom this book is written for. The story shifts from the present to the past effortlessly weaving in moments from decades ago and showing their relevance in the case as it was being built. The book is well written and the details morbidly fascinating, as is the case with all true crime. Ridgway himself remains something of an enigma, as his motivations are either unclear to himself or he is hiding them from others. The best he can offer is "I just had to kill".

Jonathan Case's black and white inks compliment the story well and the book is easier and enjoyable to read through his treatment of Jensen's script.

This is a true horror story that's captivating from start to finish and all fans of comics and true crime will find plenty to enjoy here, especially fans of Rick Geary's work. For the more casual reader, this is a dark yet compelling story of a horrifying individual and the stark brutality of his world, and is definitely worth reading for that. "Green River Killer" is an excellent book that I couldn't put down and felt smarter for having read it - a true highlight in comics this year.
