Illustrated Jack the Ripper

Books, Opinion Add comments

Just imagine that you had the Hadron Collider at your disposal, what would you put in it to blast to smithereens?

Well, if your answer was Alan Moore’s From Hell and The Pocket Essential Jack the Ripper, this book is for you!

It’s part fiction, part fact, part comic book, and all Jack! It’s a short book, coming in at less than your average magazine, but it packs a punch and it ’s well worth reading. There are some fantastic 3 dimensional murder locations, maps, press reports, short victim bio’s, short suspect bio’s and much much more packed in, and most of it is smashed into bite sized pieces for those with a short attention span, like myself at the moment!

It probably wont appeal to the seasoned ripperologist but for fans of comic books it’s an interesting piece of work.

The book written by Gary Reed, and has appeared before as a Tome Press Comic in 1998 but this 2008 release has more information and more illustrations.

I managed to obtain a copy for a mere £5.91 plus p&p from Amazon.
