An equal parts haunting and hilarious deep-dive review of history's most notorious and cold-blooded serial killers, from the creators of the award-winning Last Podcast on the Left Since its first show in 2010, The Last Podcast on the Left has barreled headlong into all things horror, as hosts Henry Zebrowski, Ben Kissel, and Marcus Parks cover subjects spanning Jeffrey Dahmer, werewolves, Jonestown, and supernatural phenomena. Deeply researched but with a morbidly humorous bent, the podcast has earned a dedicated and aptly cultlike following for its unique take on all things macabre. In their first book, the guys take a deep dive into history's most infamous serial killers, from Ted Bundy to John Wayne Gacy, exploring their origin stories, haunting habits, and perverse predilections. Featuring newly developed content alongside updated fan favorites, each profile is an exhaustive examination of the darker side of human existence. With appropriately creepy four-color illustrations throughout and a gift-worthy paper over board format, The Last Book on the Left will satisfy the bloodlust of readers everywhere. Narrated by the authors.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Cult-favorite horror-comedy podcast Last Podcast on the Left brings its morbid humor and astute research to the page. The hosts and authors delve deep into the ghastly worlds of nine infamous serial killers, from Ted Bundy to Jeffrey Dahmer. Each chapter is a meticulously researched probe into the dark recesses of humanity. The recent surge in true crime's popularity has produced a plethora of media that glorify and romanticize these murderers, but this book seeks to do the opposite. Using their signature macabre humor, the authors tear apart the commonly believed myths that built these demons into legends, and expose them as fallible beings. Though the authors have covered all of these men on the podcast, fans will be pleased to find fresh content. You don't need to be a listener to enjoy the book; it will appeal to anyone who likes their true crime with a side of comedy. Delightfully creepy illustrations by Tom Neely pepper the pages, lending an eerie aesthetic element. This book will terrify you while making you laugh out loud."
