I think it is terrific! Do read it, even if graphic novels aren't "your thing", as Moore has done a lot of research, as well as ample doses of imagination. He includes notes at the back, explaining which is which. The art is in black and white by Eddie Campbell.

One warning about the film of the same title starring Johnny Depp-- it has a different approach to the story, notably in the depiction of Abberline as a drug addict, which is NOT in the graphic novel. You will probably like Moore's version much better than the movie's.
