Eric Powell and Harold Schechter’s Did You Hear What Eddie Gein Done? Is Live on Kickstarter

Eric Powell and Harold Schechter are collaborating on an ambitious new graphic novel about one of the most notoriously deranged murderers in American history, Ed Gein.

Powell and Schechter are co-writing Did You Hear What Eddie Gein Done?, an all-new, 200-page, an original graphic novel illustrated by Powell that delves into the twisted history of the Gein family and the notorious violence that inspired Psycho, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and The Silence of the Lambs. Painstakingly researched and illustrated, Schechter and Powell’s true-crime graphic novel presents Gein’s infamous story like never before.

Eric Powell’s company Albatross Funnybooks is launching a Kickstarter campaign for Did You Hear What Eddie Gein Done? Sign Special Edition, featuring a Kickstarter exclusive paperback edition of the book with a cover by acclaimed horror artist William Stout, a hardcover edition with a Kickstarter exclusive dust jacket by Eric Powell, limited edition prints, and more. Did You Hear What Eddie Gein Done? will be published by Albatross Funnybooks in comic shops on July 21, 2021 and in bookstores on August 3rd, 2021. The Did You Hear What Eddie Gein Done? mass-market edition, distributed to comic shops and bookstores, will not be available via the Kickstarter campaign.

The signed special edition hardcover is $40, a pledge level of $75 gets a Gein Family Portrait Print Set, the William Stout Cover Paperback Edition is at the $100 level. For $150 backers can pledge to get a Slipcase, $500 is a commission from Eric Powell, and $1,000 nets a Zoom call with Schechter and Powell.
