On 27 July I made a survey of the various From Hell covers that have been used over the last ten years since I launched the big collected edition. Here is the latest. I believe this is the second of a two volume set, from our Japanese publisher Misuzu Shobo. They've put up a very impressive web page, which includes a nicely made video using panels from the book. Click the object at the top of the page if, like me, you are bewildered by the Japanese characters. But I guess that 'play' arrow must now be the most universally recognized character internationally. I thought of dropping it in the text here but there doesn't seem to be an html code for it.
