Spring 1889. Months have passed since Whitechapel was covered in blood, and while the mystery surrounding Jack the Ripper goes cold, Inspector Frederick Abberline is still a man obsessed.

    The art is absolutely stunning, some of the panels are simply breath-taking, the attention to detail in each panel shows the time taken to produce each page. The story is interesting, you find yourself getting caught up in a story you thought you know. A great take on the infamous Jack. Read Full Review

Jack The Ripper is still well worth a look though, particularly for those with a taste for Victorian thrillers, and for those of us who appreciate truly great artwork. Read Full Review
