From Hell Ú Less he is the receptacle for each new social panic Eddie Campbell's stunning black and white artwork replete with a scratchy dirty sheen is perfectly matched to the often unshakeable intensity of Moore's writing Between them each murder is rendered in horrifying detail providing the book's most unnerving scenes made so in uncomfortable yet lyrical moments as when the villain embraces an eviscerated corpse craving understanding pleading that they are wed in legend inextricable within eternity Though technically a comic the term hardly begins to describe From Hell's inimitable grandeur and finesse as it takes the medium to fresh heights of ingenuity and craftsmanship Moore and Campbell's autopsy on the emaciated corpse of the Ripper myth has divulged a deeply disturbing yet undeniably captivating masterpiece Danny Grayd A story doesn't have to be factual to be true and I don't think I have read a truer story in any form than Alan Moore's From HellAt the heart of the tale is Jack the Ripper It is the truest telling of Jack the Ripper that I've ever read It matters not a whit whether Dr William Gull is actually Jack the Ripper Nor whether ueen Victoria set the ball rolling with her orders Nor whether Abberline actually fell for one of the prostitutes Nor whether the Freemasons had their hands all over the deeds in Whitechapel Nor whether Druitt was sacrificed to keep the peace and maintain power dynamics Nor whether Sickert was involved Nor whether industrialized fin de siècle London was our clearest real world dystopiaWhat matters is that Alan Moore's writing and Eddie Campbell's artistry uncover a deep emotional and philosophical truth about the reverberations of the smallest actions in the world The smallest and the biggest What matters is that they recognize that their tale is nothing than a tale told from their perspective What matters is that they painstakingly researched anything and everything that had to do with that autumn in East London that they rode every ripple from the epicentre no matter how far it took them in time and space that every decision they made was conscious and that the sum of that conscious work offered a hyperreality of that definitive event in the life of London that encapsulates the beauty of our existence within the ugliest of events That is the truth they uncovered the beauty of living in the ugliest of circumstanceTheirs is an astounding achievement that transcends the graphic novel medium It is not simply the greatest graphic novel ever written though it is that it is also one of the greatest five stories I have ever read I would put it up there with Hamlet and Gravity's Rainbow and The Outsider and Wuthering Heights forgive me this list I've not read some others that are undoubtedly great and perhaps deserving of my praiseFrom Hell is not for the delicate of heart I demands work It demands that you stare at the horror and not simply turn the page with a desire to get past the horror because Moore and Campbell demand that you engage with the horror and cut deep to the bone to discover what it is that makes us terrible and wonderfulThe changes this masterpiece superior to Watchmen and The Killing Joke and V for Vendetta have wrought on storytelling on the comic form and even on me are unclear at the moment But they will be real and with the benefit of hindsight they will be traceable to From Hell pdf ´ » Alan Moore

Alan Moore » From Hell kindle Tish Establishment including the Freemasons and The Royal Family A popular claim which is transformed through Moore's exuisite and thoroughly gripping vision of the Ripper crimes being the womb from which the th century so enmeshed in the celebrity culture of violence received its shocking visceral birth Bolstered by meticulous research that encompasses a wide spectrum of Ripper studies and myths and coupled with his ability to evoke sympathies in such monstrous characters Moore has created perhaps the finest examination of the Ripper legacy observing far beyond society's obsessive need to expose Evil's visage Ultimately as Moore observes Jack's identity and his actions are inconseuential 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 hysterias Face Uh oh I think I like comic books now
