The “bloody” Benders were a small German immigrant family who settled in late 19th century Kansas opened a grocery storeinn and began murdering rich lodgers and stashing the bodies across the prairie and in a ditch beneath the house The ringleader appeared to be the young woman Kate who believed she could speak to spirits and who would find out about the visitors who showed up at their inn If they had money she would position them in the seat where their backs would be to a screen where one of the other three family members would bludgeon the visitor rob him then take him down to the ditchbasement and cut his throat They murdered over a dozen innocent people and then fled when they realised they had been rumbled They were never caught and people around the country thought they saw various family members at one time or another in the following years It wasn't even determined if they really were related to one another or not Geary draws and tells the story brilliantly The pictures of a late 19th century Kansas conjures up a wistful portrait of frontier life with all it's romance and harshness The Bender's Inn is drawn in detail and shows how cramped conditions were in those days where you bought the land but had to build the house yourself The artwork reminded me of Crumb but was different enough to say Geary has his own style The story clips along at a uick pace and is easily read in a single enjoyable sitting Overall an interesting little history lesson about an obscure but fascinating case brought vividly back to life with Geary's illustrations and brisk storytelling
