London’s Cartoon Museum is facing imminent closure. After having had an expensive move at the end of 2019 to a new location, and being forced to close their doors temporarily due to the virus pandemic, the Cartoon Museum has no revenue stream to support existing costs.

Soaring Penguin Press has always had a fondness for the Cartoon Museum. So we are donating 50 copies of The Bad Bad Place to help raise funds. Each of these books will come with an original A6 piece by Mark Stafford, artist on The Bad Bad Place and Artist-in-Residence at The Cartoon Museum.
If you’ve ever been to the Cartoon Museum, or plan to go someday, or have a love of the history of UK cartooning and comics, then please consider purchasing one of these books.
About The Bad Bad Place:
It seems that Faraway Hills, the modern community built on the site of the far, far older Crouch Heath, did not satisfy all the needs of the community. When the Castavette Estate reappeared on the edge of town, years after it had been demolished, those needs, those urges, those cravings were satisfied. But at what price?
David Hine and Mark Stafford, the team responsible for The Man Who Laughs and Lip Hook, bring a new tale of Urban Unease, a horror tale of dreams turned dark, and a mother’s soul blackened with revenge.
