5.0 out of 5 stars Hardly humourous - Horror, Harlots and Heraldry, 31 July 2000
This review is from: From Hell (Paperback)
That this book is described as 'Comics- Humour' says everything about the way comics/ graphic novels are still viewed by the mainstream . This is a work that is as far away from the world of 'Whizzer'n'Chips' as it's possible to get . Moore, one of comicdoms finest evr writers, is joined by the equally brilliant Eddie Canpbell, and together they take us on a dark journey to the very depths of the human psyche . That the central idea is one of the dodgier Ripper theories should not get in the way of the appreciation of this work . A carefully constructed web emeshes us, and we are pulled into the lives, and sad, horrible depths, of the victims . It is too often the case that studiers of the crimes treat the victims as commodities - Moore and Campbell make them human beings. By the end, even the murderer himself has become a pathetic figure, his death as pointless as those of his victims . This is no comic, it is perhaps the first truly great work of graphic art.
