it was amazing

I love From Hell, but somehow had never read anything else that Eddie Campbell was involved in. So glad I had a chance to read this, though. This is immediately finding itself ranked among the best comics I've ever read. Utterly charming but also somewhat twisted and dark, a bit macabre, entirely hilarious, with lots of non-pretentious references to influential comics and literature. And it's about a not-quite-star-quality circus performer who counts among his friends a talking bear who was suspected of being Jack the Ripper. I really can't recommend this enough and I'm really surprised I had never heard of it before. I think I need to read this again before giving it back (thanks Leah!)

Leah I loved this book too. Keep it as long as you like. I'm not sure what made me pick this up but I'm glad I did!
