Library Journal names FROM HELL a classic!
March 16, 2010
Library Journal's Neal Wyatt and Tom Batten have assembled a cream-of-the-crop short list of absolutely essential graphic novels -- "classics that not only stand out as great starting points for newbies but also serve as examples of the best work done by masters of the form." Such a list would hardly be complete without something by Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell, and the writers kill two birds with one stone by recommending Alan & Eddie's monumental collaboration From Hell!
As Batten writes, "Moore weaves together a huge cast of characters, ranging from royalty to doomed footmen, and Campbell's scratchy, dark illustrations create a gloriously grimy and terrifyingly realistic London for them to inhabit." If you haven't braved the dark depths of From Hell before, why not dive in today? We can safely say that it will blow your mind.
