A page from Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell’s outstanding graphic novel From Hell, an encyclopedic account of the Jack the Ripper murders. In this scene, our evil protagonist Dr. Gull undergoes a transcendent experience, and appears to William Blake, inspiring The Ghost of a Flea.
I pulled the image of From Hell from this fantastic detailed review by Miguel at St. Orberose (far better than my own my own meager tackle at writing about the book). Plenty more images there, along with a comprehensive analysis of (what I take to be) Moore’s best work.

Why, thank you very much!
Thank you also for the ongoing posting of Blake’s pictures. Some were new to me. When I read Alexander Gilchrist’s biography of him months ago, great as it was, it sorely needed more pictures to show what a visual genius Blake was!
