Why I Killed Peter

Why I Killed Peter is an autobiographical graphic novel that came out last year that somehow fell below my radar until I read a review recently in Comics Buyer's Guide. Written by Oliver Ka and illustrated (in color) by Alfred and published by NBM, Why I Killed Peter, recounts Oliver Ka's early life growing up, meeting a man named Peter, whom he befriends, and a disturbing thing that Peter does during one of the camps that Oliver attended when he was twelve.


While the disturbing thing that Peter does is very disturbing, it ultimately isn't as disturbing as it could have been (although still disturbing enough to alter a person's life) and Why I Killed Peter isn't sensationalistic and presents the subject matter in such a way that will stay with the reader without being as creepy as it could have been, at the same time not excusing what happened.
