London, 1888 A.D. The entire city is consumed by fear of a serial killer known only as Jack the Ripper. He mutilates female prostitutes with extreme brutality. However, his victims hide a terrifying secret and Jack’s destiny is to continue hunting them down.
I was looking for random manhwa and found this one. Four chapters have been scanlated. Its been long time that I had a similar feeling when I started to read Berserk. The feeling of dread, hopelessness, etc. The magnitude wasn't I had for Berseerk but it was there for first 3 chapters. Anyway, this series might turn out to be very good or may be not. But worth keeping eye on it for at least few more chapters.

Oh already started this one, long time ago, but only 3 chapters were available at that time. But i didn't have a good impression of this manhwa. All i saw was a stupid main char manipulated by the psycho woman that he love, trying to cover her.
Chapter 4 had some revelations. I will only spoil you, better you read yourself. The story isn't what it looked like in first 3 chapters. I can't say the story took a turn for good or worse.
So only 4 chapters are out, and damn with chapter 4 twisting the story into a totally different direction, I can not wait for more. Have there been signs of new chapters?
Sadly, no further development. I tried to contact Scantily Clad but I got no reply from them.
I could only find 6 chapters translated, are there more out now?
Check this out. You will find volume 2 scanlated.
The main flaw of this manhwa is that it's too short. Only five volumes... It's really a pity given that this interpretation of Jack The Reaper is really convincing. I'm glad Hell Blade talked about Crusade, Jack, Holmes, Illuminati... It's a nice "melting pot".
I don't know if Je-Tae Yoo is working on another story but I hope he will propose a Hell Blade II or something like that. Jack' deserves it !
