Insanely dense and deeply horrific. The only knock I can make against this is Eddie Campbell's art -- it's definitely gorgeous, but there are times where his scrawly black and white style makes it hard to tell just what the hell's going on. A lengthy read, and not an easy one, but worth the time investment. ( )

[b:From Hell|23529|From Hell|Alan Moore|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1327894621s/23529.jpg|191464] in a masterpiece. Both the grand idea behind it and the implementation in text and graphics is absolutely brilliant. After finishing it, you only want to go ahead and start from page one again, since you just know that you have missed so many references, hidden layers and other great intricacies.

At first, I was a bit confused, as this story of Jack the Ripper isn't told from the perspective of the killer, nor from the perspective of the law, nor from the perspective of the victims, but rather from all of theirs at once. Therefore, the thriller and detective aspects of the book are kept at a minimum, but the horror aspect is fully focused upon, both story wise in the actual killings and the schemes of conspiracy surrounding it, as in the magnificent graphics.

Yes, the use of graphics in this `comic' is raised to a new level for me (I'm not all that familiar with the genre however). I often felt I was reading a movie, I have no other way of putting it.

Great read. Thoroughly satisfying experience. ( )

I'd heard many good things about this graphic novel from various sources, so it made me intrigued to want to read it. I was fortunate enough to find a copy in my local library. However, there were a few pages that had been torn out randomly for some reason. I don't know if by accident or design. I may ask the staff at the library if they're aware or not.

Anyway, having had a long fascination with Jack the Ripper and true crime in general, I knew that this was the sort of thing that I'd be interested in reading. And I was right. Alan Moore definitely did his research in the case of Jack the Ripper, as he himself mentions in his detailed appendix. He did take creative liberty with a few details in order to tell the story he wanted to tell, but there were a number of things that were historically accurate at the time.

I am usually a stickler for well rendered art, and while the art by Eddie Campbell did take a bit getting used to, I do know why it was done in the particular style in which it was. It's reminiscent of the illustrations used in Victorian era newspapers, even down to the layout of the panels. After awhile, I never even noticed the 'primitive' sort of style and just enjoyed the tale that was being told. Mr. Campbell did his research as well, not leaving out a single gruesome detail, especially for the death of the Ripper's last victim.

Although there was a film made, starring Johnny Depp, I do suggest reading the graphic novel if you have any sort of interest in Jack the Ripper, the Victorian era or true crime in general. Although it's a fictionalized account and no one know the true identity of the Ripper to this day, it's a very intriguing story in it's own right. ( )
