Avenger of Blood: Genesis Graphic Novel



A graphic novel based off of the heartbreaking story of the 1965 Indiana Torture Slaying of Sylvia Marie Likens… It is a deeply affecting tale, one that most true crime buffs consider to be one of the most haunting and heartbreaking tales they have read. Avenger of Blood: Genesis is a story about child abuse, murder, and ultimately, revenge!

This graphic novel is an immense and brutal psychological endeavor, not to be read by those who are disturbed easily or the faint of heart. Fans of true crime, dark fiction, vigilante justice, ghost stories, and psychological horror will love it!



A young girl has been killed in the most humiliating, degrading, unconscionable manner in which any one person can be slain, all under the nose of a poor neighborhood and a large family.



Her twin brother waits in the cell room of a mental institution swearing he sees his sister’s ghost who speaks to him pleading “Avenge Me.” The sadistic family and friends who have tortured and killed his sister over a period of 3 months are now free from prison. No one is there to seek retribution on them, until now!

    Cant wait for the Graphic Novel sounds like its going to be absolutely Amazing, just curious but whats Nick Caves opinion on the Likens Case. I imagine he found it shocking when he first heard of it. Keep up the good work.

    • Thanks for the comment Fade to Black! I am not sure what his opinion on the Sylvia Liken’s case is, I never spoke or messaged directly with him. I contacted his publishing company Mute Song Ltd. they were always kind and fast with all of my questions. When they asked me if I could send a synopsis and the website so they could show it to Nick, I was stoked!

      I am assuming the project might hold some kind of interest to him, he does reference the The Avenger of Blood (the name and the term that is explained in the prologue of the graphic novel) in a song on Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds’ album Tender Prey. It is called “City of Refuge”. I didn’t notice it until a few months after receiving the approval from Nick and Mute. Cities of Refuge were places that killers who were pursued by the “Avenger of Blood” (the chosen family member to slay them) could hide and, by law, take sanctuary in.
