Celebrated crime novelist Jim Thompson’s sinewy, brutal, and beloved novel comes to life in this graphic noir-novel!
In THE KILLER INSIDE ME, Thompson went where few have dared, giving us a pitch-black glimpse into the evil mind of the American serial killer years before Charles Manson, John Wayne Gacy, and Brett Easton Ellis’s American Psycho. Thompson’s novel will forever be known as the masterwork of the greatest crime novelist of all time.
Lou Ford is the deputy sheriff of a small unsuspecting Texas town. The worst thing most people can say against him is that he’s a little slow and a little boring. But most people don’t know about the sickness—the sickness that almost got Lou put away when he was younger—the psychosis that is about to surface again.

“Devin Faraci, Vic Malhotra and Jason Millet provide an almost direct translation of Jim Thompson’s work, never once shying away from the more unpleasant aspects of the original work, and using Thompson’s own prose as a weapon instead of a crutch to be relied on. You never know what is lurking in the mind of those around you, but The Killer Inside Me #1 shows you exactly what Lou Ford is thinking, and while it isn’t easy to take it, it is impossible to look away.” – Justin Partridge, Newsarama
