Comics have thrived in London over the centuries with Gilray, Hogarth, the first edition of Comick Magazine in 1976, Thomas Rowlandson s Doctor Syntax in 1809 and the first edition of Punch in 1841 In this century, there have been attempts to reserve comics for kids with the growth of magazines like Dandy and Beano But the comic strip is too rich an art form to be juComics have thrived in London over the centuries with Gilray, Hogarth, the first edition of Comick Magazine in 1976, Thomas Rowlandson s Doctor Syntax in 1809 and the first edition of Punch in 1841 In this century, there have been attempts to reserve comics for kids with the growth of magazines like Dandy and Beano But the comic strip is too rich an art form to be just for kids in recent years, a new generation of British artists has developed a rich synthesis of the Continental graphic novel and American comic strips In It s Dark in London the work of some of these artists is featured Alan Moore, Ilya, Neil Gaiman, David McKean, Carol Swain, Dix in tandem with the stories of London writers like Iain Sinclair, Graeme Gordon, Christopher Petit and Stella Duffy This fusion produces a portrait of London that captures the city s fundamental essence as exquisite mixture of lofty towers and gutter sleaze, of suburban gentility and urban depravity, of private vices and public philanthropy.

Comments It's Dark in London

  • Gabriela Ventura

    Toda vez que leio/vejo uma coletânea de alguma coisa (em qualquer mídia) me pego repetindo a velha ladainha sobre coletâneas: a qualidade é, quase sempre, muito irregular. Com A Vida Secreta de Londres não é diferente: algumas histórias são boas (Alan Moore, Gaiman, Graeme Gordon, Alexei Sayle) algumas são bastante esquecíveis. Em vez de fornecer um panorama das entranhas de Londres, há pequenas peças que ressaltam violências, relacionamentos, repressões e depressões que poderiam [...]


  • Alex Sarll

    I think this cover is for the original 1996 version, but I read the 2012 reissue - which, annoyingly, has no indication of what pieces are new. My instinct is that the book was better left as a historical document, because so much of it, especially the short prose pieces by Alan Moore and Iain Sinclair, has since been expanded into parts of much bigger works, and the best bit of all - Moore's From Hell epilogue 'I Keep Coming Back' - is available elsewhere in its entirety. And yete collection is [...]

    Just read it in the darkness of the city in discussion and enjoyed most of it, hence the rating

    With the creators involved in this book, I should have owned it a long time ago. I finally remembered to pick up this newer edition only recently, and I still am unsure how satisfied I am with it.The writers and artists herein were, at the time of the book's original publication, some of the brightest stars in the independent British Comics firmament. Some -- like Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman -- have stood the test of time and remain powerful names not only in comics but in modern writing. Many ot [...]

    nwhytevejournal/2892401mlA collection of short pieces about London, of which the two standouts are "The Court" by Neil Gaiman and Warren Pleece, and "I Keep Coming Back" by Alan Moore and Oscar Zárate; most of the rest are little more than vignettes and some of them are a bit confused at that. Originally published in 1996, this 2012 edition has more material (though does not indicate what has been added).


  • Colin

    This is a patchy collection of comic strips set in and around London. I really enjoyed the one by Neil Gaiman and the last one by Alan Moore but the rest were a bit "meh", I'm afraid. Interesting period piece though, encapsulating, as it does, the preoccupations of life in the city in the nineties.


  • Todd S

    I was only aware of Oscar Zárate through his 1991 collaboration with Alan Moore, A Small Killing, which I had read sometime in the mid-90s. When I saw It's Dark in London on the secondhand bookshelf the other night, I scooped it up out of curiosity, and was surprised to see separate unread stories from Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, and Dave McKean. Good enough for me.The first real drawback is that nearly every story in this slim black & white volume goes all out to prove its membership in the a [...]


  • L.A.

    A collection of brooding, disturbing graphic and narrative fictions about London's seamy underbelly.Call it a guided tour of places you've always wanted to see, accompanied by stories about things you wish you didn't. The title pretty much says it all here: the black and white art, coupled with the unnerving adventures of Not Very Nice People, will send ripples of unease down your spine, even as you enjoy the hell out of it. The table of contents reads like a list of rock stars, including Neil G [...]


  • Bellis

    I pretty much bought this comic because of the Neil Gaiman-story and because the title sounded like something I might like. Other than that I didn't know anything about it and had never read anything by any of the other authors. So I didn't really know what to expect. And I'm still not absolutely sure how I liked it. The styles of the stories is pretty diverse, I really liked some, especially the atmosphere they create, but others were a bit too abstract? experimental? for my taste. And I guess [...]


  • Arsnoctis

    Ho ordinato questo volume con un anno di anticipo, contiene storie brevi a fumetti e ancor più brevi racconti in prosa di alcuni autori veramente noti, il comune denominatore, ovviamente, è la città di Londra.Lo ho acquistato e letto il prima possibile, ma non posso dire che valesse 12 mesi di attesa. I racconti trasudano pece da tutti i pori e sono davvero nerissimi, ma considerando le altre opere degli autori qui coinvolti posso solo dire che si tratti di una raccolta che risulta "ok", null [...]


  • Patrick

    Fully expected to like this, what with Neil Gaiman, Dave McKean, & Alan Moore works in it. Someone forgot to tell the storywriters that plotlines still make a good story, just because one can put words on paper does not mean it is good writing. The majority of the artwork was way below even mediocre standards. Some stories (i.e. "The Griffen's Egg") went even beyond poor to the inane level.


  • Feather Mista

    para mi sorpresa, me gustó más el relato de Gaiman que el de Moore, y aunque todas las historias e historietas experimentales que contiene esta antología me parecieron de muy buenas para arriba, el conjunto general me dejaron un poquito insatisfecho. En una de esas, después explico porquéses y todo.


  • Matt Buchholz

    I can't honestly say that I understood most of these stories but when you accidentally run into solid material that you never knew existed from people like Gaimen, Moore, and McKean, it's hard not to get giddy.


  • Malcolm

    I got this some years ago and read through it so many times that all the pages came loose and fell out. Murky, great urban comics. It has stories by Iain Sinclair, Stewart Home, Neil Gaiman. Keep meaning to find another copy of it somewhere.

    Antología underground noventosa sobre Londres a cargo del argentino (radicado en Inglaterra) Oscar Zárate.
