Indie publisher Abrams ComicArts released this critically acclaimed best seller in March. The graphic novel recalls Dahmer's isolation, binge drinking, bizarre behavior to get attention, and his disturbing fascination with roadkill. Derf and his friends created the Dahmer Fan Club and encouraged Dahmer to act out, including fake epileptic fits and his imitation of a cerebral palsy victim.
The role of a teenage Jeffrey Dahmer is a star-making role with huge breakthrough potential for the right young actor. The last actor to get into Dahmer’s skin was Jeremy Renner in 2002's DAHMER; he was rewarded with an Independent Spirit Award nomination that helped launch his career.
