Staff Picks (March 13): From Hell Companion SC


Publisher: Top Shelf Productions
“Some very fine writing is buried in these scripts, and nobody has ever read it but me.”

For the ten years between 1988 and 1998, artist Eddie Campbell lived with Alan Moore’s scripts for the masterpiece From Hell. Now those scripts are available to readers for the first time, as Top Shelf collects the materials behind this masterful work in a hefty, 288-page softcover.

Filled with Campbell’s detailed reminisces and notations, The From Hell Companion offers a window onto the fascinating collaborative process by which prose script becomes graphic storytelling. Campbell explores Moore’s rich imagery as it was adapted to the black and white page. He also provides a wealth of history with reference photos, variant interior sketches, after-the-fact redraws, and more than a few interesting anecdotes and snapshots from years of work on the book. The From Hell Companion takes reader behind the scenes of one of the most-read graphic novels of all time.
