Did You Hear What Eddie Gein Done? Book Cover

Did You Hear What Eddie Gein Done? by Eric Powell and Harold Schechter

“One of the greats in the field of true-crime literature, Harold Schechter (Deviant, The Serial Killer Files, Hell’s Princess), teams with five-time Eisner Award-winning graphic novelist Eric Powell (The Goon, Big Man Plans, Hillbilly) to bring you the tale of one of the most notoriously deranged murderers in American history, Ed Gein. This graphic novel is an in-depth exploration of the Gein family and what led to the creation of the necrophile who haunted the dreams of 1950s America and inspired such films as Psycho, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and The Silence of the Lambs. Painstakingly researched and illustrated, Schechter and Powell’s true-crime graphic novel takes the Gein story out of the realms of exploitation and gives the reader a fact-based dramatization of these tragic, psychotic, and heartbreaking events. Because, in this case, the truth needs no embellishment to be horrifying.” –Provided by the publisher

Copies of the book are available for check out from the 2nd floor reference desk of the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library – just ask at the desk!
