Green River Killer Strikes Again in TPB


October is a month of frights and terrors. Overcast days. Halloween. Terror in all forms, one of which is a trade paperback known as Green River Killer by Jeff Jensen and Jonathan Case. And in case you're wondering, Jensen just so happens to be the sone of Tom Jensen, the detective on the case. Sure to appeal to fans of True Detective, Green River Killer features a story by Tomorrowland writer Jensen, gorgeous art by Case and is priced at an affordable $19.99.

Throughout the 1980s, the highest priority of Seattle-area police was the apprehension of the Green River Killer, the man responsible for the murders of dozens of women. In 1990, with the body count numbering at least forty-eight, the case was put in the hands of a single detective, Tom Jensen. After twenty years, when the killer was finally captured with the help of DNA technology, Jensen spent 180 days interviewing Gary Leon Ridgway in an effort to learn his most closely held secrets—an epic confrontation with evil that proved as disturbing and surreal as can be imagined.
