From the winner of the 2009 Isotope Award for Excellence in Mini-Comics! –Every comic Will Dinski makes is elegantly and cleverly designed.” -- Rob Clough, The Comics Journal "In Fingerprints, Will Dinski has succeeded in poking fun at an image-obsessed culture by reminding us that all good things must fade. With its mini-comic style and entertainingly quick pace, this book is equal parts tabloid headlines, soap opera, and absurdist comedy."-- John Geddes, USA Today "A light, fast-paced story with a pleasing design."-- Booklist "Both Dinski's art and storytelling beg the reader to dig below the surface, raising important questions about beauty, celebrity, sexuality, art, and superficiality."-- Brian Heater, The Daily Cross Hatch In a town where movie-star beauty is only a surgery away, it's hard to tell what's real... A cosmetic surgeon takes pride in his best work: an ing_nue of the silver screen, literally built for success. While he plans one last procedure to perfect her looks, his aging wife struggles to keep his interest, and his ambitious assistant threatens his practice with a disturbing new technique. In his debut graphic novel, acclaimed mini-comic creator Will Dinski presents a haunting pastel vision of beauty, surgery, and jealousy, served with a sci-fi twist.

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.
