Alan Moore’s seminal Ripper conspiracy yarn is back and this time Eddie Campbell is remastering it and will be splashing it liberally with color, especially deep red!
After twenty seven years 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 & 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.”
Five unsolved murders. Two of the greatest creators in the history of comics. One sprawling conspiracy, one metropolis on the brink of the twentieth century, and one bloody-minded Ripper ushering London into the modern age of terror. The award-winning bestseller From Hell, often ranked among the greatest graphic novels of all time, takes on haunting new dimensions in From Hell: Master Edition, enhanced with impressionistic hues by Eddie Campbell himself. — a 64-page, full-color, prestige-format comic book (with spine & 3” French flaps) (6 5/8” x 10 1/8”), $7.99 (US) Released exclusively through comic shops and digital retailers in September 2018.
