Janus Stark

Got a lot to say about this fella, but that's to come.

All i'll say here is that he's my second favourite.

Part of that is the Victorian setting (which set me on the road to being a fan of Holmes, Verne, Wells and the likes of Mayhew chronicling the reallities of the East End then), part of it is the striking apperance of the character (which i'm resembling more and more as my hairline recedes) but mainly its for the bizarre situations and methods of escape he'd use.

Haven't got the tale where he manages to squeeze through something like a 6 inch pipe but my memory of that is so strong its untrue.
