Number 529

"...lately he's been overheard in Mayfair..."

You all know the song, don't you? "Werewolves of London" by the late Warren Zevon. "He's the hairy handed gent who ran amuck in Kent, lately he's been overheard in Mayfair.You better stay away from him, he'll rip your lungs out Jim. Huh! I'd like to meet his tailor. Aaaaahooooo, werewolves of London, aaaaahoooooooo..."

My friend Nix sent me these scans from the first Bentley of Scotland Yard in Pep Comics #1, January 1940. "Monster of Mayfair" is drawn by M. Gutwirth.

Thanks, Nix. Aaaahoooooo!

Cool story Pappy (and Nix), I like how Sir Rupert kept his monocle on even under the werewolf mask! That's an upper class criminal right there!

One must keep up appearances, mustn't one?

Speaking of appearances, you're looking a little green...are you feeling OK?
