REVIEW: The Killer Inside Me #5

The Killer Inside Me #5

The story so far…

Lou Ford deputy sheriff of a small town is a serial killer that uses his position as deputy to cover his tracks but now he’s been found out it’s time for his final stand.

Having only read this final issue and not the first four I didn’t see any of the murders just the aftermath. With the monologue by Lou himself explaining his actions but not excusing them is a cleaver way to tell the story of a killer in a crime book. I’ll admit this is not a good jumping on point but that doesn’t take away from the excellent writing as the twisted mindset of Lou is brought front and centre as this issue shoes the consequences of Lou’s actions come to a head.

The art is very retro that fits with the crime style of the book, clean lines and smooth colours counter balance the dark nature of the story itself. I’ll have to go back and read this story from the beginning because if it started as strong as it finished then this whole story is a five-star read.
