Alan Moore, illustrated by Eddie Campbell
In Alan Moore’s masterpiece From Hell, Moore picks one of the main theories about the real Jack the Ripper and follows it through to the gory end. Illustrated in black and white and jumping between characters’ perspectives (the murdered women, the murderer, the detective, and various suspects), this graphic novel will chill you to the bone.
It’s a dark and stormy night, and you find you have nothing to read to get you in that spooky Halloween mood. What to do, with only days left till All Hollows’ Eve? Take yourself to the graphic novel section of your nearest bookstore, obviously, and stock up on some of the best, most disturbing, horror-centric image-based books. If these won’t get you into the creepy, what’s-over-your-shoulder spirit, pretty much nothing will.
