From Hell

I have recently re-read Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell's acclaimed Jack the Ripper saga From Hell, soon to be a major motion picture. Lately, I've often found myself rereading old favourites and going "What a load of crap", but not with this one. Granted, it did have some iffy moments at the start, where Eddie Campbell's scratchy drawings look a little too crude for what he's trying to do, and the long explanation of London as a magical constellation early on now looks forced, but once that's out of the way, the writing settles in this relentless groove, the art becomes more and more sophisticated and From Hell quickly becomes one of those books that you can't put down. Read it now before that movie hits the theaters (which it may already have done in the US).

Get it from Amazon.com in the US or from Amazon.co.uk in Europe
