Read full description of the books:
Non affronta esclusivamente la storia di Jack lo squartatore, si tratta bensì di un’antologia di casi, e nemmeno tutti si svolgono in Inghilterra, anzi prevalentemente negli States. Lo stile di disegno quasi caricaturale aiuta a smorzare un po’ i toni di questi efferati crimini, e niente balloon, ogni vignetta è accompagnata infatti da brevi didascalie dal taglio sensazionalistico che richiamano perfettamente la condotta dei giornali dell’epoca. Il numero di pagine dedicate alle singole storie è variabile, certe sono piuttosto brevi mentre altre, come i delitti svoltisi a Whitechapel o la saga dei sanguinari Bender in quest’occasione, godono di uno spazio maggiore. Un prodotto insolito, atto a soddisfare la curiosità su alcuni dei delitti più noti e chiacchierati dell’epoca.
