was a story written by Grant Morrison and drawn by Daniel Vallely which appeared in the anthology title Crisis #56-61 in 1991.
Bible John was an unidentified serial killer who killed in Glasgow in the late 1960s. Bible John - A Forensic Meditation is a study by Morrison and Vallely into the nature of evil, as well as forming ideas as to why the killer committed his crimes. It has been compared to Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell's From Hell as it covers similar themes.
The story was highly experimental in terms of story and art, with Vallely and Morrison claiming to have used a Ouija board to write the script and Vallely through a cocktail of hallucenogenic drugs attempted a series of collages rather than conventional panels to tell the story. The term "forensic meditation" refers to Morrison's mixture of science and magic in order to tell the story.
The rumour is that Vallely destroyed most of his work after this collaboration and left the comic industry.
The story was serialised in Crisis from issues 56-61 and has not been reprinted since. (Wiki
