I've never really got into graphic novels, they are usually not about things I have an interest in, but the subject here, growing up as a school friend of arguably America's most notorious serial killer, is fascinating. I enjoy his artwork too.


Yeah, I'm sure you do
It is comic book drawing, not the ceiling on the Sistine Chapel. You will either like it or you won't.
 
I'm not much of a graphical novel guy PM but I'd recommend Maus by Art Spiegelman if you haven't read it. It was the first graphic novel to win a Pulitzer prize. It's an amazing way to tell a very harrowing story.

Just started 'The Great War for Civilisation' by Robert Fisk.

It'll take awhile to read with over 1200 pages. In the first few pages he was introduced to Osama bin Laden in Sudan by the one and only Jamil Khashoggi.

If its half as good as 'Pity the Nation' then it'll be a great read.

Cheers, I will check it out. The story of 'My Friend Dahmer' is unbelievable, I believe the film did an alright job of it too.

Yeah, quite funny how he got away with it. I liked the way some chapters went off and told the stories of Romario and Edmundo both characters in their own right.

Proof of Collusion by Seth Abramson

An incredible read and a must for anyone with an interest in geopolitics. The mother of all scandals is on the way.

Over half way through Eoin Hand - My life and Irish football. 

Very enjoyable. An honest account of his life and in particular his football career. He doesn't like the auld FAI that's for sure. The crap and battles he had with them is hard to believe. The story about the FAI booking a connecting flight to Argentina in the middle of the Fauklands war ... some of the Irish players were on UK passports at the time and were sh*tting themselves. ConfusedLOL
