“Eric Powell and Harold Schechter team up to tell the true story of Ed Gein in a unique format for true crime. I can’t wait!”
―John Carpenter (Director of Halloween, The Thing)
Best selling true-crime author, Harold Schechter (Deviant, The Serial Killer Files,Hell’s Princess), teams with five-time Eisner Award–winning comic creator 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. "DID YOU HEAR WHAT EDDIE GEIN DONE?" 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, heartbreaking and psychotic events. Because, in this case, the truth needs no embellishment to be horrifying.
