My Friend Dahmer
By Derf Backderf
When Emry pulled A Graphic Novel out of the jar I felt my stomach kind of drop. This wasn't a topic I was excited about in the beginning, and here it was staring in the face. What was I going to do? How was I going to choose which to read?
So, I did what I thought I needed to do: I went to a comic book store. I walked in and immediately felt like Penny from The Big Bang Theory. Heads turned, the room (it felt, but I'm sure was all in my head) got eerily quiet, and no one moved. An overwhelming discomfort bubbled up and I immediately felt out of my element. I turned around and walked out.
