One of the greats in the field of true crime literature, Harold Schechter (Deviant, The Serial Killer Files, Hell's Princess), teams with five-time Eisner Award-winning graphic novelist Eric Powell (The Goon, Big Man Plans, Hillbilly) to bring you the tale of one of the most notoriously deranged serial killers in American history, Ed Gein. Did You Hear What Eddie Gein Done? is an in-depth exploration of the Gein family and what led to the creation of the necrophile who haunted the dreams of 1950s America and inspired such films as Psycho, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Silence of the Lambs. Painstakingly researched and illustrated, Schechter and Powell's true crime graphic novel takes the Gein story out of the realms of exploitation and gives the reader a fact-based dramatization of these tragic, psychotic and heartbreaking events. Because, in this case, the truth needs no embellishment to be horrifying.… (mere)

Errol Morris interviewed Ed Gein, and, along with his friend Werner Herzog, wanted to exhume Augusta Gein's grave to see if Ed robbed it. But only Herzog was present and he didn't commit. YO!!!!

Ed Gein was a momma's boy, dominated by a tyrannical, pious woman named Augusta Gein. His father was an enfeebled drunk and his brother, Henry, had died around the same time as his dad, and so it was only Ed and Augusta until her death the mid 50s. She was a bossy cunt throughout her entire life, becoming sort of like Ed's God. Consciously, he loved her, but subconsciously, he hated her. And so, he exhumed plenty and murdered two elderly women, butchering, tanning, and defiling their bodies as of means of bringing her mother back to life and killing her at the same time. He was a disturbed individual, desiring to be a woman, who inspired Leatherface, Buffalo Bill, and Norman Bates, along with, more generally, inspiring the Slasher genre. He's buried in an unmarked grave next to his mother. (also, fun fact, in his retrial after being pronounced sane, he looked at the crime photos of the woman he butchered, and had been aroused, staring at the photos for 5 minutes).

I enjoyed hearing about Ed Gein, it's certainly satiated my morbid curiosity, I will say it's a little exhaustive in the details they share. A lot of witness accounts were quoted, even false ones and gallows humor, which I thought was a little circuitous. Otherwise, very insightful and wonderfully illustrated! ( )

From what I can tell, this is a “based on a true story” kind of nonfiction. Relatively few sources are provided, so large parts of the narrative appear to be fabricated. A little disappointing for me, because I wanted some clarity on the man behind the genderqueer serial killer movie stereotype and how much of that characterization is Freudian weirdness. I’ll have to find out a different way.

Feels weird rating it, so I’ll keep it unrated for now.

This is the story of the notorious necrophile Ed Gein, who was the inspiration for the killers in the movies Psycho, Silence of the Lambs and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, as told through the award-winning artwork of Eric Powell and the painstaking research and thoughtful dramatization of true crime author Harold Schechter. The combination of the haunting artwork and the incredible research that went into this book make for a fascinating, if not horrifying, read. ( )

I knew the basic story of Ed Gein, but not all of the details, and they are all in here - and they are terrifying! The inventory listed on pages 116 and 117 are horrifyingly disgusting. It was a little hard to read all of this, but it was really interesting too. Though be warned - this is not a book for the feint hearted, not even in its 'comic book' format! A man and his madness...
