    One thought on “From Hell Companion”

    1. One heck of a guide FROM HELL TO YOUR DOORFrom Hell, easily one of the graphic novels dense ever written by the grand master Alan Moore, definitely was needed a companion like this one to be able to get many of the secrets that the author put there, maybe in plain sight, but hardly so easily to grasp.This is indeed the essential guide to fully understand all the hidden messages and intentions of the brilliant writer Alan Moore in From Hell If you read carefully, you will get many thing on your [...]

    2. I m going to get to the actual review, but indulge me for a bit first.A decade or two ago, I m in Lansing, Michigan, visiting my wife s family With some free time, I go to the Michigan State University Library Special Collection, which has one of the largest collections of comic books in the U.S The first day, I m basically trying to find post Mad Kurtzman work So, while others in the reading room are wearing white gloves and perusing prints of flowers, I m reading John Cleese fumetti The second [...]

    3. You know how the current theory common wisdom is that we only use 10% of our brain It seems we ve only ever read about 10% of what Alan Moore has ever written.This book is a perfect reason why someone, somewhere, needs to do what Eddie Campbell gives us a taste of here and that s start publishing the COMPLETE ALAN MOORE SCRIPTS To Quote from E.C s introduction, These scripts are rich with incident and information that didn t always, or couldn t find its way onto the printed page Some very fine w [...]

    4. Dif cil decir algo interesante sobre esta obra maestra, que se ve ahora complementada por los apuntes, los guiones de Moore y las fotograf as de lugares que adjunta Campbell en este Companion, adem s de entregar un sinf n de an cdotas sobre el trabajo realizado en esta serie, que permiten profundizar a n m s en el gigantesco trabajo que hicieron ambos Tiene tambi n mucha informaci n sobre decisiones que se tomaron para la pel cula, que se comenz a producir cuando la serie estaba por reunirse en [...]

    5. Rese a de Maese ABL en su blog llauna 2013 06 COMPANION FROM HELL es un libro que contiene material de Alan Moore y Eddie Campbell, aunque est conducido por el segundo En l, se incluye una buena parte de los guiones remitidos por Moore para la obra From Hell acompa ados de la p gina terminada para comparar tambi n se han escogido los momentos m s importantes a juicio del dibujante, se comentan aspectos b sicos de la realizaci n gr fica a lo largo de todos los a os que se extendi e incluso curios [...]

    6. This is an odd book It s mostly Eddie Campbell s recollections about working on From Hell intermingled with excerpts from Alan Moore s original scripts Moore himself periodically appears in the manuscript in the form of snippets from interviews, biographical sketches, and other sources, but he contributed no new information to this volume It is interesting to read this and From Hell side by side, and frankly, unless you consider yourself something of an expert on the latter work, it s really the [...]

    7. Este libro complementario de la novela gr fica From Hell no me ha acabado de gustar mucho Leerse algunos de los guiones con los cuales el dibujante Eddie Campbell realizaba sus vi etas no me ha parecido ni muy interesante ni imprescindible para seguir m s y mejor From Hell.Quer a disfrutar a todos los niveles esta obra magna y me forc a leerme el Companion No lo disfrut mucho pero a pesar de todo no me arrepiento de ello.Reconozco que tampoco hubiera pasado nada si no lo hubiera hechoS que es ve [...]

    8. 3.5 5I love books, I love movies I typically have zero interest in reading scripts so it was with a bit of apprehension that I approached this one since it s largely comprised of script excerpts Why read the bones when you can read the full finished story Eddie Campbell tends to be really good at digging deep, and Alan Moore s dense scripts are legendary notorious in the comics industry so I gave it a shot It was worth it It get s a little long in the teeth but for the most part the exploration [...]

    9. From Hell is one of my favourite comics of all time so I totally loved this It was like sitting in a room with Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell for Hours and Hours and hearing them talk about the book The book was largely comprised of Alan s scripts to Eddie detailing how the panels should look and what should be in them This should have been quite dry but it was fascinating, there was insights into the characters, the history, jokes, and beautiful passages of prose I learned a lot about the creati [...]

    10. I wish I liked this better than I do Don t get me wrong It s good There are some fascinating insights into From Hell and into the creative process in general Excerpts from Moore s in famously detailed scripts are reproduced In the end, though, it just feels kind of flat, like something s missing Perhaps if From Hell were fresher in my mind before reading this It has been a while since I last read it In any case good book I just thought it would be better.

    11. Script, sketches, hindsight, relevant memories, and the ongoing odd couple sitcom that most ongoing comics collaborations seem to end up as If you ve not read the Ripper epic at least once then this would be tricky to follow it skips scenes where there s nothing much to add , but the original is one of the biggest achievements in comics so that s no real hardship Seriously, I love Watchmen, but why it still gets talked about as Moore s big work

    12. An interesting sample of Alan Moore s scripts for, in my opinion, his most accomplished work in comics Eddie Campbell s editorial notes are terser than I would have liked, but I suppose his detailed thinking on the matter is on the pages of the comic as well In that sense, I find it interesting to think that Moore s intention with the Appendices was to ensure an unmediated connection with the reader in his authorial voice.

    13. via NYPL Yes, there are some interesting anecdotes on the creation of a great comic book series here, but mostly it s just page after page of Alan Moore s verbose scripts appealing for a short while, tedious in the long run to compare to Campbell s final thumbnail sized pages unless you want to put the book side by side, which is effort than I thought necessary But nothing here is going to change how you view From Hell.

    14. A fantastic book and a very careful examination of how a remarkable and dense comic cane together If I have a complaint, it s that I wish there had been of Eddie Campbell in the book than there was I ve long been a fan, particularly when he gets biographical It s a minor complaint though I m thrilled to have read this book.

    15. Given that the appendices were my favorite part of From Hell, it probably comes as no surprise that I quite enjoyed the companion volume It provides considerable insight into the creative process behind the book and sheds light on many subtle touches that are easily missed It also contains a few laugh out loud funny moments, which you might need after all the grimness of the story proper

    16. I m always fascinated by behind the scenes scripts and this does not disappoint Alan Moore s fantastically verbose and detailed scripts are matched with Eddie Campbell s commentary on the process and the art It s a super fan s guide for one of the best graphic novels of all time and well worth a deep dive.

    17. Indispensable A great collection of script pages and commentary from one of the best things the medium and these master creators has ever produced
