Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell take us on a harrowing tour of 19th century London and the secret history of Jack the Ripper in FROM HELL, their hulking, tome-like, extensively-cited black and white masterpiece. While FROM HELL may not necessarily be the first comic to have endnotes, it certainly has the best.
Join us as we talk about magical architecture, Victorian pornography, and unsettling Venn diagrams.

Steven Moffat! A Tolkein dwarf! Wedge Antilles!
This episode we are talking about something that incredibly contains all of these things, and isn't that secret Doctor Who fanfic you wrote in high school. It's the BBC miniseries Jekyll, written by Doctor Who and Coupling scribe Steven Moffat, aka your god, and starring James Nesbitt, Gina Bellman and a host of comic actors in a sequel to Robert Louis Stevenson's novel of Victorian repression and genetic damage.
Also we close with a patented Stack-style extended digression on the British television model.
