From Hell


To say I was disappointed by From Hell by Alan Moore would be an understatement. This graphic novel was bloated and the dialogue was tortured to within an inch of its life. On top of that there was hardly a page out of the 576 that did not include a penis, vagina, buttocks, or breast, although to be honest the art in the novel was so "sketchy" most of the time the only things I could identify were the naughty parts! Those were drawn in vibrant realism. I felt like I was reading the 1972 edition of The Joy of Sex by Alex Comfort I stumbled across in my Aunts house at one point in my youth.

Probably the most disappointing thing I have read all year.
