From Hell cover

Original Cover


I really shouldn´t buy any more From Hell covers, but I couldn´t resist this one:

This From Hell book 9 (US) cover shows the door to Sir William Gull´s residence in 74 Brook Street, Mayfair, London. Or to be more precise: It shows the most sinister doorknob in the world - a doorknob with The Ripper´s facial features and more and more mad eyes. The door itself is shown as a black, sinister mirror, with images of Gull´s two visitors and hints of the monster lurking behind the door and inside the respectable building.

About Eddie Campbell

Eddie Campbell (born 10 August 1955) is a Scottish comics artist and cartoonist who now lives in Australia. Probably best known as the illustrator and publisher of From Hell (written by Alan Moore), Campbell is also the creator of the semi-autobiographical Alec stories collected in Alec: The Years Have Pants, and Bacchus (aka Deadface), a wry adventure series about the few Greek gods who have survived to the present day. His graphic novel The Lovely Horrible Stuff, which playfully investigates our relationship with money, was published in July 2012 by Top Shelf Productions. His scratchy pen-and-ink style is influenced by the impressionists, illustrators of the age of "liberated penmanship" such as Phil May, Charles Dana Gibson, John Leech and George du Maurier, and cartoonists Milton Caniff and Frank Frazetta (particularly his Johnny Comet strip). His writing has been compared to that of Jack Kerouac and Henry Miller.
