WINNER of the 2003 Ignatz Award for Best Graphic Novel! ". . . a single-minded obsession with animation history informs this work even as its creator twists and tears that history into a new, hideous, and hilarious form. There's a little bit of Roger Rabbit and a whole lot of Spinal Tap at work here. Twisted and dark, funny and frightening, this is a deliciously evil toon history that demands attention." -- Alan David Doane Top Shelf is proud to present a very unique comics project. Through a series of never-before-seen interviews and rare photos, documentary-maker Rich Koslowski reveals the horrifying true story behind the Cartoon industry and our most celebrated cartoon actors -- the story that Hollywood doesn't want you to see. Told in the same style as a Ken Burns documentary, with interviews of 'toon stars today as well as historical "file footage"of the "early years,"this work of fiction will forever change the way you think of those beloved characters in the white gloves. ... Rich Koslowski has worked in the Animation and Comic Book industry for the past 12 years. Best known for his three-time, Eisner-nominated work on his self-published parody title "The 3 Geeks,"this ground-breaking graphic novel is sure to appeal to everyone.

Alan Moore
Winner of the Eisner, Harvey, and Ignatz Awards for Best Graphic Novel. A New York Times Bestseller! "Remarkable."-- Leo Carey, The New Yorker "... dark, fearsomely complex..."-- Douglas Wolk, Publishers Weekly "My all-time favorite graphic novel... an immense, majestic work about the Jack the Ripper murders, the dark Victorian world they happened in, and the birth of the 20th century."-- Warren Ellis, Entertainment Weekly "Moore's works have often defied the public's expectations of the medium, and his most ambitious work, the massive graphic novel From Hell, is no exception... The result is at once a meditation on evil, a police procedural and a commentary on Victorian England. ... an impressive piece of work."-- Patrick Day, The Los Angeles Times "... a massive exploration of the Jack The Ripper murders that incorporates British history, Masonic ritual, and London geography in a fascinating and horrifying conspiracy theory."-- Tasha Robinson, The AV Club From Hell is the story of Jack the Ripper, perhaps the most infamous man in the annals of murder. Detailing the events leading up to the Whitechapel killings and the cover-up that followed, From Hell is a meditation on the mind of a madman whose savagery and violence gave birth to the 20th century. The serialized story, presented in its entirety in this volume, has garnered widespread attention from critics and scholars, and has been adapted into a major motion picture from Twentieth Century Fox starring Johnny Depp and Heather Graham. Often regarded as one of the most significant graphic novels ever published, From Hell combines meticulous research with educated speculation, resulting in a masterpiece of historical fiction both compelling and terrifying.
Rich Koslowski
Nominated for FOUR Glyph Comics Awards! Named one of USA TODAY's top graphic novels to watch at San Diego Comic-Con! "BB Wolf strikes a relentless tempo that grabs you by the ears and refuses to let go. I never put this one down for an instant. Great stuff."-- Greg Ruth, artist of Freaks of the Heartlands, Conan: Born on the Battlefield, and Our Enduring Spirit "BB Wolf and the 3 LPs is one of the best graphic novels of the year and a must read for any comics fan!"-- Alex Dueben, Comic Book Resources "If Arnold's monochromatic through-line were a beverage to be savored (which it is), it would taste like a strong, bittersweet Southern tea. ...Koslowski's beastly linework proves his past Eisner Award nominations were justly deserved. [BB Wolf] yanks at your heart strings so hard it's bound to snap a few."-- Kyle Lemmon, Under the Radar –Books like this are the reason I got back into the comics scene... 5 Stars!” --Alex Haas, the Independent Comics Review A farmer and family man by day, blues musician by night, and a drinker of fine spirits at any hour, BB's life seemed simple. But this fragile peace comes crashing down when the LPs decide to take his land by any means possible. When all is lost, BB lashes out, setting into motion acts of revenge only a Big Bad Wolf could unleash. Rich Koslowski (award-winning creator of Three Fingers and The King) brings to life this haunting debut from writer J.D. Arnold. Set in the Mississippi Delta of the 1920s, BB Wolf & the 3 LPs is a classic story of racism, murder, revenge, and music... all filtered through the clever re-telling of a timeless fairytale.
