The characters are striking from the first page and the story of Jack the Ripper comes alive once more.
From Hell takes a very interesting spin on the Ripper tale and follows follows the story a detective trying to track him down. The super natural meets the bloody and cruel steeds of Victorian London in a gripping tale that I dare not say to much about lest I give away the plot. Needless to say anyone who buys this book will not be disappointed.
The artwork is highly detailed and realistic - yet is presented in a rather stark fashion, in black and white (with lots of shades of grey). Campbell excels at creating a dark and tense atmosphere, full of shadows portraying danger. The illustrations are most engaging - and, on occasion, highly explicit (depicting sex and prostitution, as well as murder and mutilation). The art perfectly complements the detail and depth of the story offered by Moore.
The Jack the Ripper murders are conceived as part of a conspiracy to conceal the birth of an illegitimate royal baby (fathered by Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence) born to a young prostitute. Moore undertook a great deal of research in order to ground the various plot points of the story in reality. And, as an appendix, this volume presents a 40+ page set of notes explaining which aspects of the narrative are based on fact, and which are fiction.
This is one of finest pieces of Ripper story-telling. The book is a high-quality publication, and presents the graphic novel in a deluxe manner.
