One of my own personal most anticipated titles of the Summer is the adaptation of Robert Bloch’s classic novel “YOURS TRULY, JACK THE RIPPER” that is coming this June from IDW Publishing. Of course Robert Bloch is best known for penning the novel “PSYCHO” that would go on to be adapted into a film by Alfred Hitchcock. I hear it was pretty good. The author is a literary legend amongst horror and chiller readers, and his short story “YOURS TRULY, JACK THE RIPPER” is no different. For myself, being a bit of a Jack The Ripper enthusiast, I can say that the book is easily one of the best novels I’ve ever read on the serial killer. But how will this translate onto the illustrated page? Read on to find out and get your first ever look at the first 5 pages of the book provided exclusively by IDW Publishing!
“Psycho author Robert Bloch’s seminal tale of the Ripper in then-contemporary times was originally published in Weird Tales in ’43. Now it’s getting adapted to comics for the first time ever, by acclaimed writer Joe R. Lansdale & John L. Lansdale, and featuring art and colors by Eisner-nominated artist Kevin Colden (Fishtown).”
