Why, with one of Gil Kane's best jobs of the early 1970s, that's how! You really get Kane's mastery of making his characters "act". Their facial expressions and body language keep propelling the story forward, drawing you into the terror that awaits. Editor Roy Thomas did a great job of teaming Kane with high caliber talent on "Yours Truly, Jack the Ripper!" considering it's based on a classic short story by Robert ("Psycho") Block, scripted by one of my all-time favorite authors (and comics historian supreme) Ron Goulart, and inked by the incredible Ralph Reese. Yeah, it would have taken a strong, strong fan to have passed up Journey into Mystery #2 (September 1972)!
