Campbell s approach to it It slowed me down, but helped me understandof the intended subtext 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 se I m going

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 day, Randall Scott the man in charge of the comics collection mentions their collection of files related to Eclipse Comics Eclipse was a small but influential publisher in the eighties and one of the first publishers besides Marvel and DC to publish middleground that is, not underground comics successfully In particular, Eclipse published Scott McCloud s Zot The Complete Black and White Collection 1987 1991 his major work before Understanding Comics The Invisible Art and Larry Marder s Tales of the Beanworld.They also published Alan Moore s Miracleman Miracleman or as it was known in the U.K., Marvelman and that s a tale I won t get into is Moore s best known early superhero work and probably one of the factors that led to his Swamp Thing run on DC While the early issues were published by 2000 AD in the U.K and then reprinted by Eclipse, in the mid eighties Moore finished the work for Eclipse It s an alternatively dystopian and utopian take on the Captain Marvel Shazam character and how a superbeing might restructure society.Near the end of the run in issue 15, Moore and artist John Totleben spend an issue on a fight scene that totals London, as Miracleman fights his nemesis This is not a good ol Thing versus Hulk battle, with property damage that disappears It is an apocalypse It is, in many ways, Moore s version of a superhero holocaust, and it incorporates horror elements into a slugfest.So, one of my all time memorable moments with comic books is sitting in the MSU Special Collections room reading a xerox of the Alan Moore script for Miracleman 15 If you don t know comic book scripts, think of movie scripts, except that you have panel by panel descriptions instead of shot by shot And Moore s scripts are intensely some would say excessively detailed I love behind the scenes stuff, so the chance to see the design behind the script was fantastic.All right, move forward a decade Both volumes of the Moore and O Neill work The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen have been published in a slipcase edition with full scripts included In addition, Jess Nevins s annotations to the series Heroes And Monsters and Blazing World have appeared in book form Therefore, I m reading the original work, the scripts, and the annotations together Heaven.If you have gotten this far, you know 1 I like reading Alan Moore scripts and 2 I have had good occasion to do so So finally , what do I think about the From Hell Companion First off, note that the book contains many excerpts of Moore s scripts to From Hell, but it s not the whole package Eddie Campbell acts here first as an editor selecting important pages and then as a commentator The general format is that you see Eddie s remarks on the page in question sometimes addressing the artwork, sometimes discussing other issues and then you see the script You usually see a reduced copy of the finished page, but I would recommend going to the graphic novel to catch all the details.The result is quite different from reading a Moore script straight, and I believe muchreadable Now, part of this is because Campbell is an excellent raconteur The same humorous tone he brings to his non fiction and semi autobiographical comics is evident here.But the bigger point and the main reason why I love the book is that you see quite clearly the interplay between the writer and artist Moore writes the scripts, but Campbell has the last ink stroke Moore s exposition has far too much detail, and Campbell s art whittles it all down to the essentials A great example is the contrast between Moore s cinematic thinking and Campbell s scene setting In the script, Moore is constantly moving the camera so we see a scene from many different perspectives Campbell, on the other hand, often uses a single perspective It s an artistic decision that highlights the relationship between the characters and makes the movement in the comicstriking.There s a bitthan scripts and commentary here Moore and Campbell sold the movie rights before the serial was finished, so we get glimpses of the synopsis Moore writes for the movie folk and see the changes when the chapters were actually written We get discussion of censorship and comics publishing and some nice visual interludes with photographs of London architecture that get translated into black and white art.Note that Moore doesn t contribute anything new to this most of the Moore material is either the scripts or quotes from interviews However, the Campbell materialthan makes up for any lack If you re a fan of the original work or someone interested in comics collaboration, this is a must read Dif cil decir algo interesante sobre
