We've written before about From Hell, Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell's magnificent 1999 graphic novel (made into a rather good 2001 movie with Johnny Depp and Heather Graham).
Now, Knockabout Press has published The From Hell Companion, a wonderfully detailed and endlessly fascinating account of the comic's creation.

Some of these were previously published by Campbell in a 2006 blog post, but they're not a patch on the reproductions in the book itself.
