On The London Monster

Dark history, British crime and the unusual world of the Penny Dreadful have always fascinated, beguiled and, I'll be honest, terrified me in equal measure. The other day I found this magnificent thing whilst idly looking through Wikipedia, probably searching for evidence of the existence of the Loch Ness Monster. Or actually, I think it was on the back of the Mawnan Owlman (see last week's blog entries for the exciting details).

The story of The London Monster is so bizarre, unusual and, let's face it, amusing that I am rather surprised that I'd never heard it before. Still, there's no point dwelling on the past , or the wretched failings of the British education system. And so, now possessed of this vital knowledge I present an EDUCATIONAL CARTOON. Every fact in here is 100% accurate, even the ones I made up.

I hope you enjoy it. Failing that, I hope you won't complain to me.
