From Hell ペーパーバック – イラスト付き, 2004/5/1
From the squalid alleys of the East End to the Houses of Parliament, from church naves to dens of the occult, all of London feels the uniquely irresistable blend of fascination, revulsion, and panic that the Ripper offers. The city teeters on the brink of the twentieth century, and only the slightest prodding is necessary to plunge it into a modern age of terror.
Moore and Campbell have created a gripping, hallucinatory piece of crime fiction about Jack the Ripper. Detailing the events that led up to the Whitechapel murders and the cover-up that followed, From Hell is a modern masterpiece of crime noir and historical fiction.
Winner of the Prix de la Critique — Angoulême International Comics Festival

Winner of the International Horror Guild Award
A New York Times Bestseller!
"Remarkable." — Leo Carey, The New Yorker
"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
"Moore, one of the great fiction minds of his generation, never accomplished anything more satisfying than this. Both creators are at the top of their game: Campbell's grubby lines are the perfect evocation of the horror of everyday Victorian life in the underclasses, while Moore's allegorical plotting — looping in the Royal family, Masonic occult ritual, the Elephant Man and the nature of London itself — makes for a hypnotic read and perpetual re-read." — Joe Gross, Rolling Stone
"Centered on the murders of Jack the Ripper, From Hell delivers a very frightening and suspenseful story that has captivated audiences for years." —CBR

So yes, Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell did A LOT of research to come up with his version of events, and who is to say what is true and what isn’t, but this is certainly a work of fiction – until it can be proven otherwise of course.
This graphic novel took me AGES to read it because it was just so bleak. It is hard to say if I enjoyed it or not because the topic is not too easy going. The murders are gruesome in detail, but the cover up, if true, is just as disgusting. It is a really good story, and I am very glad I read it, but I would say that anybody who is thinking of reading it should approach with caution. Certainly not one I would expect anybody to read in one sitting. I found I had to leave weeks between a couple of sections. There are also some areas where I was completely lost – luckily the version I read came with an extended appendix with detailed explanations of where the ideas came from and what certain phrases meant.
I find it difficult to rate it. It is clearly a genius piece of work, but I can’t say that I loved it. I am going to read The Five soon, which is a story focused on the victims of Jack The Ripper (long overdue), so I am hoping this will have given me at least some info to start off on the right foot.
I can certainly see why this novel is held in such high regard, as with a lot of things though, I am not sure this one is to everyone’s taste.
The characters are striking from the first page and the story of Jack the Ripper comes alive once more.
From Hell takes a very interesting spin on the Ripper tale and follows follows the story a detective trying to track him down. The super natural meets the bloody and cruel steeds of Victorian London in a gripping tale that I dare not say to much about lest I give away the plot. Needless to say anyone who buys this book will not be disappointed.
The authors spin a fine yarn, there is no claim that what are saying is 100% correct but the whole story is so interesting and illuminating that that the book does not stand or fall on its mere veracity of who JTR was.
There are copious notes from Moore at the back of the book, however I could not access them when reading the book, I also could not save or highlight any passages which is a pity as the insane but eloquent Dr.Gull has some fantastic lines.
"For better or worse, the 20th century; I have delivered it."
