"Remarkable." — Leo Carey, The New Yorker
"Fearsomely complex." — Douglas Wolk, Publishers Weekly
"My all-time favorite graphic novel … an immense, majestic work about the Jack the Ripper murders, the dark Victorian world they happened in, and the birth of the 20th century." — Warren Ellis, Entertainment Weekly
"Moore's works have often defied the public's expectations of the medium, and his most ambitious work, the massive graphic novel From Hell, is no exception. … The result is at once a meditation on evil, a police procedural and a commentary on Victorian England. … an impressive piece of work." — Patrick Day, The Los Angeles Times
"A massive exploration of the Jack The Ripper murders that incorporates British history, Masonic ritual, and London geography in a fascinating and horrifying conspiracy theory." — Tasha Robinson, The AV Club
"Moore, one of the great fiction minds of his generation, never accomplished anything more satisfying than this. Both creators are at the top of their game: Campbell's grubby lines are the perfect evocation of the horror of everyday Victorian life in the underclasses, while Moore's allegorical plotting — looping in the Royal family, Masonic occult ritual, the Elephant Man and the nature of London itself — makes for a hypnotic read and perpetual re-read." — Joe Gross, Rolling Stone
"Centered on the murders of Jack the Ripper, From Hell delivers a very frightening and suspenseful story that has captivated audiences for years." —CBR
