Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Alan Moore (Watchmen) and Eddie Campbell (Bacchus), grandmasters of the comics medium, present a book often ranked among the greatest graphic novels of all time: From Hell.

From the squalid alleys of the East End to the Houses of Parliament, from church naves to dens of the occult, all of London feels the uniquely irresistable blend of fascination, revulsion, and panic that the Ripper offers. The city teeters on the brink of the twentieth century, and only the slightest prodding is necessary to plunge it into a modern age of terror.

Moore and Campbell have created a gripping, hallucinatory piece of crime fiction about Jack the Ripper. Detailing the events that led up to the Whitechapel murders and the cover-up that followed, From Hell is a modern masterpiece of crime noir and historical fiction.

   captivating
An engrossing yarn that takes you to London in 1888 and far beyond as you travel with the infamous Jack the Ripper. The story is dense and packed with trivia, obscure details and odd history. Having never been to London, much less in the 1880s, I can 't speak for how accurately the setting is portrayed, but it did a fantastic job of transporting me to a place that felt authentic. The art is often sketchy and barely there, but I think it does an effective job of capturing the stark and bleak mood of the events that occur. If you see the film made from this graphic novel, you shouldn't worry about the experience being ruined for you, as the book is almost nothing like the film. Likewise, if you have never seen the film, don 't bother with it. This book is better in every possible way.

   The complete picture "From Hell" tries to create won't become ...
The final picture that Hell tries to create won 't become apparent until the complete act. Despite the confusing story lines, stick with it and be thankful that certain scenes were presented in black and white. Not for the squeamish or those who are ready for experimental storytelling.

   Geat story, painful art and lettering
Let me start by saying that this is a great story. It combines police work, intrigue, politics and mysticism in a package. But you have to WANT to read this novel, because the poor lettering and the poor artwork make it very difficult to read. Some may consider it part of the art of the graphic novel, but I really think that they could do better. If it was not for the poor artwork and the poor lettering I would have given it 4 or 5 stars. For parents, This is NOT a graphic novel for teenagers or younger. It has graphic and explicit sex, violence and the defamation of the female figure.

   Top Tier
From Hell is one of the best graphic novels I have read and the art in it is also something special. Was not really interested if it was completely accurate when I read it, so I viewed it as fiction the whole time. The only negative with From Hell is that sometimes the dialogue is hard to understand because it is in old English where most characters are also untrained, so there are a lot of slang and abbreviated words. Also unrelated, Amazon sent me this book in a way that the cover was damaged on shipment. If you're a mature reader, I would recommend you pick it up right now.

   Great take on the greatest murder mystery of all time
Recently I went on a walking tour through White Chapel in the East End. The guide believes that the version written by Stephen Knight, Jack the Ripper, was the actual true story. I have yet to read The Final Solution, but read this graphic novel and watched the movie with Johnny Depp and Heather Graham. Some illustrations are very graphic and certain scenes were hard to follow until I realized there was an appendix explaining certain sections. I have become a mini-ripperologist, having watched many documentaries and collected many books on Jack the Ripper. I still have to decide what to read, as I am still early in this hobby of reading various books. I found the graphic novel to be very entertaining and shocking ''. When compared to the movie, it was more graphic. It is worth a read though, and I highly recommend it.

   I keep missing the “genius” in Moore’s work.
The more and more I am told that Alan Moore is the best '' and the greatest '', it always baffles me. Simply stated, this is an interesting idea about one of the greatest murder mystery's of all time. That said, the writing in this comic was crafted in some way with Moore's head up his own rectum. He seems so in love with his writing that the abstract Brilliance '' of this seems to be clunky story telling that hits you with random scenes that have nothing to do with Jack the Ripper case. In the end, it is hard to tell who has truly lost his mind, Sir Alan Moore or William Gull.

   What is the fourth dimension?
This was a very disturbing and horrifying story. Then Alan goes into vivid detail with the passage of the full catchers about how no one really knows who was the culprit and why it happened. Also all the crazy theories came to be. As well as the so-called experts and people who swore that they had evidence of what really happened. The bit where the door flies open with each new villain really stuck with me. The acesenion bit was very mystical and transcendent.

   Jack The Ripper solved?
I bought it by mistake when I was going through some things on my Kindle app. I now love a good graphic novel. I had no idea what was happening ''. And this is truly a case of a book being judged by its cover. This is one of the most clever takes on finding the Jack the Ripper case. I was drawn into the story in such a way because the artwork preserved a darkness that was needed. It almost seems as if this book was made and then at times it was written, with all the different references to the various literature of the time. Ich am VERY gullible, but I am convinced. But I also thought The Blair Witch Project '' was real! It is a must-read ''. The artwork is fantastic and the story is very believable. This is it in a nutshell!
