Product description

Amazon Review

"I shall tell you where we are. We're in the most extreme and utter region of the human mind. A dim, subconscious underworld. A radiant abyss where men meet themselves. Hell, Netley. We're in Hell." Having proved himself peerless in the arena of reinterpreting superheroes, Alan Moore turned his ever-incisive eye to the squalid, enigmatic world of Jack the Ripper and the Whitechapel murders of 1888. Weighing in at 576 pages, From Hell is certainly the most epic of Moore's works and remarkably and is possibly his finest effort yet in a career punctuated by such glorious highlights as Watchmen and V for Vendetta . Going beyond the myriad existing theories, which range from the sublime to the ridiculous, Moore presents an ingenious take on the slaughter. His Ripper's brutal activities are the epicentre of a conspiracy involving the very heart of the British Establishment, including the Freemasons and The Royal Family. A popular claim, which is transformed through Moore's exquisite and thoroughly gripping vision, of the Ripper crimes being the womb from which the 20th century, so enmeshed in the celebrity culture of violence, received its shocking, visceral birth. Bolstered by meticulous research that encompasses a wide spectrum of Ripper studies and myths and coupled with his ability to evoke sympathies in such monstrous characters, Moore has created perhaps the finest examination of the Ripper legacy, observing far beyond society's obsessive need to expose Evil's visage. Ultimately, as Moore observes, Jack's identity and his actions are inconsequential to the manner in which society embraced the Fear: "It's about us. It's about our minds and how they dance. Jack mirrors our hysterias. Faceless, he is the receptacle for each new social panic." Eddie Campbell's stunning black and white artwork, replete with a scratchy, dirty sheen, is perfectly matched to the often-unshakeable intensity of Moore's writing. Between them, each murder is rendered in horrifying detail, providing the book's most unnerving scenes, made more so in uncomfortable, yet lyrical moments as when the villain embraces an eviscerated corpse, craving understanding; pleading that they "are wed in legend, inextricable within eternity". Though technically a comic, the term hardly begins to describe From Hell's inimitable grandeur and finesse, as it takes the medium to fresh heights of ingenuity and craftsmanship. Moore and Campbell's autopsy on the emaciated corpse of the Ripper myth has divulged a deeply disturbing yet undeniably captivating masterpiece. --Danny Graydon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I bought this for my partner as a gift as he's a massive graphic novel fan and I was most impressed when it arrived. The book is large, heavy and thick and tells the entire From Hell story. Each page it's beautiful drawn telling this dark tale with thought and care.
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.

From Hell is one of my favourite comics of all time so I totally loved this. It was like sitting in a room with Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell for Hours and Hours and hearing them talk about the book. The book was largely comprised of Alan's scripts to Eddie detailing how the panels should look and what should be in them. This should have been quite dry but it was fascinating, there was insights into the characters, the history, jokes, and beautiful passages of prose. I learned a lot about the creative process that went into making the book and how it was written and drawn, so much detail and so much work. This is definitely one I'd recommend to fans.

By S P Mead TOP 500 REVIEWER on 22 Jun. 2016
Format: Paperback
"From Hell" is a masterpiece of graphic novel fiction - by writer Alan Moore and artist Eddie Campbell. It was originally published as 10 issues between 1989 to 1996 - and was collected into a single volume in 1999. It's a story set in Victorian England, and concerns the murders and motives of Jack the Ripper. Indeed, the title of this large book (it's nearly 600 pages long) is derived from the contents of a letter that is thought to be written by the Whitechapel Murderer. This graphic novel was met with both critical acclaim and commercial success. If you're a fan of Moore's writing, or you're simply interested in Jack the Ripper, then I thoroughly recommend this book.

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.
