From Hell Companion

Ignoring the Hughes brothers film starring Johnny Depp and Heather Graham but going back to the roots of the story I think every Ripperologist remembers the first time they read Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell’s Graphic Novel.  A mixture of fact and fiction in a rip roaring plot that leaves the reader gasping for more (Moore). 

The colours are so vivid, and whilst most of the book is written in black and white, the odd dash of red really brings the page to life, and the final chapter is one that stays with the reader long after they have read the book.  The supplementary material is always a pleasure to read, but as something as massive as this, and it is a big collective volume, you would think there would be a little more…..

Thankfully, Alan Moore has announced that a companion to From Hell is to be released in March 2013!!!  Personally I am not sure I can wait that long.  The publication will feature previously unpublished material including scripts, photos, never before seen sketches, and anecdotes.  A sketch of the cover has appeared online and once again the publication is being produced with Eddie Campbell :
