2012 was a banner year for Ohio State University alum Derf Backderf, whose "My Friend Dahmer" graphic novel wowed literary and comic book critics alike. "My Friend Dahmer" is written in a unique fashion, drawing upon Derf's background in journalism, lending authenticity and depth to the project that a memoir alone could never achieve. Join Derf as he shares techniques for bringing journalism to writing comics and graphic novels.
