From Hell The Painfully Counterfeited Limited Edition

This article is a warning to people like me that dream to put their hands on a legit copy of Eddie Campbell's From Hell Painfully Limited Edition (2002, 19 copies), fully described here. All material should be ©Knockabout Comics or Top Shelf. For a complete list of all books reviewed in this blog, please visit the index page.

I was approached in July 2007 through the contact form of this blog about Eddie Campbell's From Hell Painfully Limited Edition. Here is the exact message that I have received:

Hello, are you interested in From Hell - painfully limited edition?
I might have a contact, who is interested in selling his copy. Though I have to say that price will be huge.
If you are interested -- I'll talk to him and see how serious he is for selling it.
Regards,
Black Library | library.black@gmail.com

A few Months later they have contacted me back to finalize the deal. They sent me pictures of a sealed box set, identical to the real deal presented on Mr McLaren's blog.

Here are pictures taken by me after receiving the box set to show how similar the counterfeit is to the copied box set:

Article Updates January 2017 part 2

I have updated the article dedicated to Dark Knight III Collector's Edition with issue #6.


This series continues to accumulate delays, which is not a big deal for me. But as noted before, since issue #4 there were only 23 pages instead of 28 for the main story, and this count has fell down to 20 in this issue. This time, this was partly compensate by reinserting the cover gallery, but still less variant covers than what is features in the digital edition.

The story is still very good, but this so called collector's edition is quite a deception.
