Old Timey Crimey #31: Spring Heeled Jack - “Flamo”

October 18, 2019

This week, Spooktober continues with the legendary Spring Heeled Jack. We'll take a trip down Cutthroat Lane and hop over to Green Dragon Alley to look at the Terror of London himself, that guy who...jumped high, spewed flames, and slapped people. 
 
Along the way, meth heads with moon boots, painting the town red, and the one and only Flamo the Great.

Don't forget about our brand-slappin' new Patreon, where you can be a Flatfoot, a Gumshoe, or a Private Dick!
 
Also, give us that 5-star review you know we deserve!
