Spoiler: According to Wikipedia they are hand drawn pictures of the victims, who are women from the town.
Manga story (with spoilers) The story and pictures depict a supposedly true local tale. Four Chinese girls are promised citizenship, instead forced into being sex slaves for a group of local men. One is killed and buried out in the forest outside of town. Norman finds this picture book in the hotel, which is apparently where these girls were kept. There are some Chinese characters scratched underneath one of the sinks, and one of the pictures shows a girl chained to a sink in the bathroom.
There's a lot more strange stuff happening around town. The whole town is pretty @#%^ed up, perfect place for Norman and his mother...
One and only question: Are there enough viewers of The Talking Dead that it warrants copycat shows like Bates Motel: After Hours?
I find I can't change the channel fast enough for Talking Dead, and After Hours is actually like an hour after the regular show airs. Seems like a bad idea on top of a bad idea, but maybe I'm missing something.

I think Talking Dead used to come on one hour after the show aired, cause originally Walking Dead encored the premiere right away, if I remember right. And Talking Dead was only 30 minutes (until apparently fans demanded 1 hour.)
