Announcing FROM HELL: MASTER EDITION

Alan Moore & Eddie Campbell’s masterpiece returns as full-color “prestige” comic book series in September

Jack is back — and this time, the blood is red.

For decades, the award-winning graphic novel FROM HELL has welcomed readers into the grandeur and grime of London in the late 1800s. The New York Times-bestselling opus is an achievement the New Yorker dubs “remarkable” and Entertainment Weekly calls “an immense, majestic work about the Jack the Ripper murders, the dark Victorian world they happened in, and the birth of the 20th century.”

Beginning in September, readers old and new will experience FROM HELL as never before. The FROM HELL Master Edition presents Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell’s Victorian masterpiece as a ten-issue serial, thoroughly restored and revised “for color, clarity, and continuity” by Eddie Campbell himself.

“The most dramatic change is the color, of course,” says Campbell. “I prefer the term ‘colorizing’ to ‘coloring’ since I’m not simply painting within the black lines, but reconceiving every panel to suit a full-color world. But I’ve also gone through and fixed small errors and minor flaws that have haunted me for decades. Ultimately the result is my equivalent of a ‘director’s cut’ of From Hell.”

From Hell is one of the greatest graphic novels ever made — the first comic I ever read that really opened my eyes to the possibilities of sophisticated writing and art in this format,” says Chris Staros, Editor-in-Chief of Top Shelf Productions. “It’s been one of the keystones of Top Shelf’s line for almost twenty years, and now it’s an honor to watch Eddie breathe a whole new life into this epic.”

Eddie Campbell discusses his process in greater depth and reveals an exclusive interior preview of From Hell: Master Edition in a new interview at Entertainment Weekly.

From Hell: Master Edition #1 (of 10) will be released exclusively through comic shops and digital retailers in September 2018. To find a comic shop near you, visit comicshoplocator.com or call 1-800-COMIC-BOOK.

Campbell Whyte's debut graphic novel Home Time: Under the River placed another feather in its colorful cap today, as the Eisner committee of Comic-Con International announced it as a finalist for the Eisner Award in Best Publication for Kids (ages 9–12)!

Earlier this month, Home Time received the DINKy Award for Best Work: Mid/Large Press at the Denver Independent Comics & Art Expo (DINK), where Erin Nations' Gumballs series also received the Outstanding Diversity Award.

Home Time is also a finalist for such honors as the National Cartoonist Society Graphic Novel Award, Excellence in Graphic Literature Award, Readings Children's Book Prize, and Aurealis Award. Fans know that Campbell crafted the book around six main characters, famously using a different art style in each chapter to represent each one — and at this rate, he's on track to get an award for each kid!

Congratulations to Campbell, Erin, and all the outstanding nominees.
