Jim Thompson's The Killer Inside Me



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 mind of the American serial killer years before Charles Manson, John Wayne Gacy, and Brett Easton Ellis’s American Psycho, in the novel that will forever be known as the master performance of one of the greatest crime novelists of all time.

Lou Ford is the deputy sheriff of a small town in Texas. The worst thing most people can say against him is that he's a little slow and a little boring. But, then, most people don't know about the sickness--the sickness that almost got Lou put away when he was younger. The sickness that is about to surface again.

Foreword by Stephen King.

Praise for Jim Thompson's The Killer Inside Me

"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
