Added DiffLines:

* UnexpectedCharacter: Being set in Victorian Britain, one could logically expect [[HistoricalDomainCharacter Sir William Gull, Frederick Abberline, Queen Victoria, Walter Sickert]] and the rest of the bunch to appear. But let's be honest: who seriously expected [[spoiler: Alois and Klara Hitler]] to play a role (however brief) in this book?

* BaseBreaker: William Gull's [[spoiler:visions of the future and the past]] towards the end of the story. Up until that point the comic maintains a realistic tone, and Gull's various speeches on London's occult history and geography can simply be interpreted as something the character believes in. But [[spoiler:the visions]] add an supernatural element to the story that can't be explained away. While this sort of supernatural stuff is in accordance with Alan Moore's own occult beliefs, some readers felt that it adds a needlessly distracting element to a story that otherwise tries to portray the Jack the Ripper murders and Victorian London as realistically as possible.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: In the end, is [[spoiler: Abberline's death from opium overdose just an accident, or does he kill himself because he can't ever see Mary again?]]

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: The comic isn't remotely subtle about its criticisms of the way sex workers and poor people in general were (and, by implication, still are) treated, nor does it need to be.



* {{Narm}} : The chief morgue attendant's general overreaction to the state of the prostitutes mangled bodies, especially when Abberline points out that the killer is stealing their organs. Looking at dead bodies in various degrees of mutilation has been his ''job'' for at least a few decades; surely he'd be used to this sort of stuff by now?!?

** NeilGaiman once [[https://youtu.be/337-ycZz6IM related an anecdote at a con]] in which Moore described such a scene to him. While he was eating. ''[[{{Squick}} Halfway through the meal]]''. Gaiman had to step outside not once but ''twice'' during the conversation to get some air, which led to Moore nicknaming him [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Neil "Scary Trousers" Gaiman, Master of Modern Horror]].
