    Bloody Disgusting - theSandman Feb 7, 2012

    As the protagonist pushes the killer to confess his crimes, to explain his motives, to reveal some way of understanding the atrocities, the reader is drawn into this brilliantly written and illustrated black and white graphic novel. Jensen's superb dialogue and Jonathan Case's artwork combine to implant the story, as well as the same question that obsesses the protagonist, into the head of the reader. At times I was unsure if they had the right killer, but the question of guilt quickly fades as it is replaced by the omnipresent question of why? I will not spoil the ending of this graphic novel, but I highly recommend that anyone who wants to keep themselves up at night not reliving gristly murders (although the details of the crimes are EXTREMELY heinous, more so because they are based on real events), but instead pondering a portrait of humanity stripped down to something so lacking it will make you shudder, should pick up this graphic novel.

    Comics Bulletin - Zack Davisson Oct 5, 2011

    Green River Killer: A True Detective Story is, simply put, one of the most excellent comics I have read for years. It works on every level -- as a true-crime narrative, as a personal memoir, as a story. Or, I should say, as a true-detective story, not a true-crime narrative. Because Green River Killer is the story of the detective more than the story of the killer. Read Full Review
