In the Kuro Hakubutsukan (Black Museum) series:

V.1 - Springald
The Black Museum holds criminal memorabilia from the many cases that have been investigated by Scotland Yard. In this fictional re-imagining of the popular legend, a visitor comes to see a piece of particular interest, the leg of Spring-Heeled Jack. When the curator guides him to the piece, he begins to tell his story of the case of Spring-Heeled Jack, which began in the late 1830s.

The earlier adventures of Spring-Heeled Jack involved an eccentric nobleman named Walter, who used his specially made suit to harass women. After an encounter with a very strong-willed woman named Margaret, Walter hung up his Spring-Heeled suit for good. Three years later, Spring-Heeled Jack returns, this time with a penchant for murder. Detective James Rockenfield first suspects Walter, but soon it begins to seem that someone else has taken up the mantle... [tethysdust]

V.2-3 - Ghost and Lady

Deep in London’s Scotland Yard sits an evidence room dedicated to the greatest mysteries of British history. In this “Black Museum” sits a misshapen hunk of lead—two bullets fused together—the key to the untold story of a wartime encounter between Florence Nightingale, the mother of modern nursing, and a supernatural Man in Grey. The record books show Florence fought for compassion as empires’ petty rivalries threatened to destroy the hopes and lives of common people. But a guest in the Black Museum knows the truth is not so simple, and the famed Lady with the Lamp had a ghastly secret…

Really, I expected much more from this premise. The characters were cliché, the plot was typical and predictable, and the sort-of romance was boring and cheesy -- though if you're familiar with Victorian love stories this last wouldn't really be news to you. To whit: an anti-hero changed by unrequited love towards a working-class girl who reminds him of his mother, a transvestite (or gay? it's difficult to say for sure) villain who hates "the woman who ruined all that was good and fun" about his best friend, a cop determined to chase down the aristocrats who're disrupting the peace in his city, a snooty young Lady who falls head-over-heels for the commoner who protected her from a sexual predator...

Good points: the fascinating tid-bits on Jack-the-Ripper era London and the establishment of Scotland Yard. The stylised artwork also gets a thumbs-up from me.

Overall: Not recommended, unless you have time to kill and no better manga to spend it on.

this is another manga exploring exploring the victorian england and one of their famous urban legend. i must say i'm pretty pleased with the result. the art is highly stylized, some people might feel its messy, but i love the heavy handedness in the art as it draw out the ugliness of the event. the plot, though not highly original, it is interesting as it come from real life occurrence and i really love the texts at the end of each chapter explaining the history of it all.

so try it, its only 1 volume!
