> From Hell is a compelling story. Jack the Ripper has proven to be a fascinating evil from another century, one which has held the imagination of countless folks, many of whom imagine the story of his murders to be a vast conspiracy reaching to the highest parts of British society. Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell tell one version of that theory in these relentless comics!
I haven't read Alan Moore's take on the Ripper tale, but I did enjoy the Dracula vs. Jack the
Ripper comic which was put out by Warp Graphics in—got to be the mid 1980s. It was a
four issue weekly series called "Blood of the Innocent." I forget the author, but Mark
Wheatley (Mars, Hammer of the Gods, and Frankenstein Mobster) did artwork on it.
I also bought a Zorro vs Dracula series off eBay, but haven't read it yet.
I believe the Ripper has shown up in Lee Falks the Phantom comics, as well many other
places, so he's well used in the comics media.
