For anyone who's interested, I'm tweeting bits and bobs from the book's pencilled pages on the #Jack1979 tag most days.

Reviews are coming in!

Vito Delsante says: "One of the funnest, action packed stories I've read in a while. A 300MPH thrill ride from Page One..."

The guys over at Canned Air Podcast said: "...an interesting new take on Jack 'The Ripper' we've never seen before. Don't miss this twist on the historical serial killer..."

And Black Ship Books said: "It possesses a manic, ‬manga-inspired art work that is very appealing and some of the panels explode with energy." as well as: "‬The reader is drawn into the story; ‬it never gets dull." and "‬There is a... bouncy charm to the entire comic".
They also said: "‬Itís a pity that the premise itself is so distasteful." but, well, you can't win them all.
