for the lover of From Hell who has never made it to my more personal books, here's a tip. There's a running subplot in After the Snooter where I contemplate From Hell and the movie which was still on its way at that time. There are various scenes in which things play out a little differently than in the big book and the villain starts to come alive in my nightmares. All done in the classic From Hell style. And Alan Moore is in there too. Here are a few panels.

After the snooter is probably my favorite one of all your books. And your books are probably some of my favorite books in general (though I haven't read any bachus (though I do have a dark horse presents that has one of your eyeball kid stories in it, the first work of yours I think I ever read))

After the snooter was the work that resonated with me the most.

What is it like talking to Alan Moore? I always imagine it would be like talking to some sort of oracle, never a straight answer.

sorry for getting in touch this way, but I've lost your email address. Just wanted to say that I've drawn my first new Tale from Gimbley in over 4 years (and only one or two other people saw the last one).

btw. I'm now a Grandfather for the second time. Hayden, 6 months old and with ginger hair.

Hola, Eddie:
As I’m sure you must know, I didn’t know who that Eddie Campbell was before I picked up my first “From Hell” copy; and I must admit I was one of the crowd who came to the book due to Moore’s name on the cover.
But, if I have not only read, bur reread the book and recommended it to any one with a brain and a heart, it was because of your art.
I must admit that, up to this very moment, one of the stories I like the most in any format, genre or style, is your “Graffiti Kitchen” blistering exhalation.
But, I’m sure your best story is yet to come.
Cuídate, amigo.
Besos a Ana.

Back before Alan Moore was doing intros to everything under the sun, I picked up one of the Escape "Alec" books because of his intro, and became instantly hooked.

I agree with Nino, however: “Graffiti Kitchen” is my all-time favorite.

Gorgeous! I can't wait until The Years Have Pants arrives in my mailbox.
