In Review: The Ripper Legacy

The Ripper Legacy by Jim Alexander and Mark Bloodworth published by Caliber.



Cover harvested from Drivethru

Imagine a setting where Eve taking the bite of the apple and Cain killing Abel release a palpable force for evil that wants to perpetrate itself upon the human race. Fast forward to Whitechapel in 1888 and this force gains a name for itself- The Ripper Legacy. Fast forward to the '90's (when the book was written) and the involvement of the Raven Inc; a group of investigators that specialise in the cases that conventional agencies cannot solve.

Anything more would be a spoiler so I'll stop there and let you know that this tale, originally published as a three part mini-series is now available from Drivethru comics ($4.99) and also from Amazon (£3.71) and Comixology (£3.99) as a digital download.
I really enjoyed this book, the artwork is clear and unfussed- there are a few storytelling issues that resulted in headaches for the the letterer, but on the whole this is a solid story told well. To say more would- in my opinion- detract from the quality of the story.

Highly recommended.
Thanks to Jim for the review pdf.
