About the Author
Alan Moore revolutionized comics with his work on such acclaimed titles as Watchmen, Dark Knight, Miracleman, and V for Vendetta. He has set a lofty goal for other writers to aspire to and with his efforts, he moved comics from a medium of superheroics to insightful and thought provoking literature.

A Murderous Killing Spree Which Redefined the Batman's Universe!

One of many possible origins for the Joker is revealed in this tale that explores the parallels between the Batman and his arch-enemy... arriving at the conclusion that, quite possibly, one could not continue to exist without the other.

This is a no-holds-barred take on a truly insane criminal mind, masterfully written by British comics writer Alan Moore. The art by Brian Bolland is so appealing that his depiction of the Joker became a standard and was imitated by many artists to follow. THE KILLING JOKE stirred a bit of controversy because the story involves the Joker brutally, pointlessly shooting Commissioner Gordon's daughter--up to that point known as the heroinne Batgirl-- in the spine, making her a wheelchair-bound cripple.

The mad, shaggy genius of the comics world dips deeply into the well of history and pulls up a cup filled with blood in From Hell. Alan Moore did a couple of Ph.D.'s worth of research into the Whitechapel murders for this copiously annotated collection of the independently published series. The web of facts, opinion, hearsay, and imaginative invention draws the reader in from the first page.
Eddie Campbell's scratchy ink drawings evoke a dark and dirty Victorian London and help to humanize characters that have been caricatured into obscurity for decades. Moore, having decided that the evidence best fits the theory of a Masonic conspiracy to cover up a scandal involving Victoria's grandson, goes to work telling the story with relish from the point of view of the victims, the chief inspector, and the killer--the Queen's physician. His characterization is just as vibrant as Campbell's; even the minor characters feel fully real. Looking more deeply than most, the author finds in the "great work" of the Ripper a ritual magic working intended to give birth to the 20th century in all its horrid glory. Maps, characters, and settings are all as accurate as possible, and while the reader might not ultimately agree with Moore and Campbell's thesis, From Hell is still a great work of literature.

Volume One
by Alan Moore & Kevin O'Neill
Hardcover: 176 pages
DC Comics
ISBN: 1563896656
From Library Journal:
In the waning days of the Victorian era, a cast of five agents is instructed to save England. Each agent had been a respected member of society, but for various reasons (divorce, drug addiction) they have all dropped out of public favor. Whom they work for is uncertain; the group's leader, Miss Murray, believes that it is the famed detective Sherlock Holmes, back from the dead. Against an atmosphere that is both exciting and repressive, Moore and O'Neill have superimposed a drama that is inventive and suspenseful.
The script is full of wit and literary references at one point a seaman instructs his captain ("Nemo") to "Call me Ishmael" and the illustrations charm. Highly recommended for public libraries.

From Publishers Weekly:
Acclaimed comics author Moore (Watchmen) has combined his love of 19th-century adventure literature with an imaginative mastery of its 20th-century corollary, the superhero comic book. This delightful work features a grand collection of signature 19th-century fictional adventurers, covertly brought together to defend the empire. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen comprises such characters as Minna Murray (formerly Harker), from Bram Stoker's Dracula; Robert Louis Stevenson's Dr. Jekyll (and his monstrous alter ego, Mr. Hyde); and Jules Verne's Captain Nemo, restored to the dark, grim-visaged Sikh Verne originally intended. There's also Hawley Griffin, the imperceptible hero of H.G. Well's The Invisible Man, and Allan Quartermain, the daring adventurer of King Solomon's Mines and other classic yarns by H. Rider Haggard. It's 1898, and these troubled adventurers are spread around the globe, in the midst of one pickle or another. Quartermain is found near death, delirious in a Cairo opium den; the perverse Griffin is captured terrorizing an all-girls school (leaving behind a series of mysterious pregnancies); and the gruesome Mr. Hyde is rescued from the mob set to kill him at the end of Stevenson's classic novel. This collection of flawed and gloomy heroes is recruited to fight a criminal mastermind (a notorious 19th-century literary villain) intent on firebombing the East End of London. The book also includes "Allan and the Sundered Veil," a rip-snorting, prose time-travel story starring Quartermain and written in the manner of the 19th-century "penny dreadful." Moore and O'Neill have created a Victorian era Fantastic Four, a beautifully illustrated reprise of 19th-century literary derring-do packed with period detail, great humor and rousing adventure.

Book One

Fantasy Erotica
In LOST GIRLS, Alan Moore does with sex what he did with violence in FROM HELL (its companion piece in TABOO): that is, he uses it to explore facets of it you'd never considered..  The Lost Girls is the story of three women (grown up versions of heroines you already know) who have come to an expensive mountain resort hotel on the eve of WWI. In Book One (the collected chapters 1-3 from TABOO), each has a specific sexual encounter that relates to her individual childhood fantasy world. Being more specific would give away the game.
The writing is the usual complex, layered, rich style you've come to expect of Moore, but with the added fun of lots of sex. Melinda Gebbie's illustrations are intense and often unsettling in their choice of color and the juxtaposition of her personal style with the art deco ornamentation, but always highly expressive, beautiful and, amazingly, both erotic and non-idealistic (i.e., no balloon breasts. REAL anatomy!)
This book isn't for everyone. It probably isn't for you if you're unfamiliar with some Edwardian children's book classics, and/or literary erotica (E.g., Beardsley, Cleland and the like), because the allusions are the heart (or, I suppose, in this case, genitals) of the matter. Also, this is blue fiction, not yellow. Stick with LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN if you need the pulp/sensationalist element. And if you're offended by sexually explicit pictures you probably shouldn't buy it either.
