Overview

Winner of the Eisner, Harvey, and Ignatz Awards for Best Graphic Novel.

A New York Times Bestseller!

"Remarkable." -- Leo Carey, The New Yorker

" . . . dark, fearsomely complex . . . " -- Douglas Wolk, Publishers Weekly

"My all-time favorite graphic novel . . . an immense, majestic work about the Jack the Ripper murders, the dark Victorian world they happened in, and the birth of the 20th century." -- Warren Ellis, Entertainment Weekly

"Moore's works have often defied the public's expectations of the medium, and his most ambitious work, the massive graphic novel From Hell, is no exception. . . . The result is at once a meditation on evil, a police procedural and a commentary on Victorian England. . . . an impressive piece of work." -- Patrick Day, The Los Angeles Times

" . . . a massive exploration of the Jack The Ripper murders that incorporates British history, Masonic ritual, and London geography in a fascinating and horrifying conspiracy theory." -- Tasha Robinson, The AV Club

From Hell is the story of Jack the Ripper, perhaps the most infamous man in the annals of murder. Detailing the events leading up to the Whitechapel killings and the cover-up that followed, From Hell is a meditation on the mind of a madman whose savagery and violence gave birth to the 20th century. The serialized story, presented in its entirety in this volume, has garnered widespread attention from critics and scholars, and has been adapted into a major motion picture from Twentieth Century Fox starring Johnny Depp and Heather Graham. Often regarded as one of the most significant graphic novels ever published, From Hell combines meticulous research with educated speculation, resulting in a masterpiece of historical fiction both compelling and terrifying.

    Brilliant Graphic Novel!

    This book was intelligently written and beautifully drawn. The best graphic novel I have ever read period. All the characters are well developed and the authors let you into each one of their psyches. I just hope the movie with Johnny Depp and Heather Graham is as good.

    Outstanding Ripper Book!

    A great book for anyone who is intrigued by the Jack the Ripper case. This book offers a very possible explanation to the awful tragedy that once befell WhiteChapel. It's very believable in that interwoven throughout the illustrated novel are actual facts from the case files. This is an absolute must have.

    Maybe the finest graphic novel I've read

    This novel is not for the weak of stomach or the easily offended, but those who are game will find themselves greatly rewarded. Trying to sum up this monumental work in such a limited space would be foolish, so I won't try. Suffice it to say that Moore's dialogue and plotting are ingenious, Campbell's artwork is stunning, and the historical-footnotes appendix is greatly informative. Don't be put off by the fact that this is a 'funny book.' Comics can be serious, too, and this one is seriously good.

    Not suited for Nook

    I've read From Hell three times through, and it's one of the best works I have ever read, but I see from the sample provided that it is not suited for reading and absorbing on the Nook. Do yourself a favor and read the print version instead

    Review

    A graphic novel that is horror at its finest. There aren't any words I can muster than can match what I felt after reading this story. Absolute brilliance.

    I Also Recommend:

    incredibly effed up

    I read this book expecting a dark and sometimes ironically humorous story. This book is well-written and a good story, but it is incredibly effed up. With a graphic sex-scene in the first six pages, and an equally graphic dismemberment scene. I can only say now that this book is as beautiful as it is disgusting. I would recommend this book to anybody who has a strong stomach and is not afraid of what lurks in the dark areas of the mind.
