FROM HELL – UK HARDCOVER EDITION [Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell]


Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell

The first UK Hardcover edition is limited to 500 copies.
This major graphic novel tells the story of Jack the Ripper, the most infamous serial murderer of all time. Although suggesting that the murderer was Dr. William Gull, Queen Victoria's physician, covering up for her grandson Albert who had fathered a child by a prostitute, Moore says Jack's identity is 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 hysteria. Faceless, he is the receptacle for each new social panic"
"Though technically a comic, it hardly begins to describe From Hell's inimitable grandeur, as it takes the medium to fresh heights of ingenuity and craftsmanship". Danny Graydon - Amazon
"If a literate comic was once a novelty, Moore has moved the medium into the realms of academia with From Hell" S.F.Said - The Daily Telegraph
"Alan Moore has written one of the most ambitious, formally innovative and densely researched works of historical fiction of recent years". Kevin Jackson - The Independent
