From Hell (From Hell, #2) [PDF]

by Alan Moore
The mad, shaggy genius of the comics world dips deeply into the well ofhistory and pulls up a cup filled with blood in From Hell. Alan Moore dida couple of Ph.D.'s worth of research into the Whitechapel murders for thiscopiously annotated collection of the independently published series. The web offacts, opinion, hearsay, and imaginative invention draws the reader in from thefirst page. Eddie Campbell's scratchy ink drawings evoke a dark and dirtyVictorian London and help to humanize characters that have been caricatured intoobscurity for decades. Moore, having decided that the evidence best fits thetheory of a Masonic conspiracy to cover up a scandal involving Victoria'sgrandson, goes to work telling the story with relish from the point of view ofthe victims, the chief inspector, and the killer—the Queen's physician. Hischaracterization is just as vibrant as Campbell's; even the minor charactersfeel fully real. Looking more deeply than most, the author finds in the "greatwork" of the Ripper a ritual magic working intended to give birth to the 20thcentury in all its horrid glory. Maps, characters, and settings are all asaccurate as possible, and while the reader might not ultimately agree with Mooreand Campbell's thesis, From Hell is still a great work of literature.—Rob Lightner
