Looking back at some of the previous events in the Library’s history is as captivating and astounding as hearing about the new and present exploits of the Curators. Here we look at an early attempt by some of the Library’s most famous occupants, showcasing how they tried to use their own terrifying personas and characteristics in order to blend into society undetected from the Library’s investigations…
1931 Horror documentaries were at their peak of popularity. Universal had acquired rights to the Library’s growing catalogue and began promoting them in movie theatres across the country. Though the public perceived them as works of fiction, the films were actual genuine cases of the Curators hard work and valiant efforts to protect mankind. However as some of the documentaries showed, the library was at times unsuccessful in maintaining the peace. In order to not cause public panic at the actualities that Frankenstein and ancient Egyptian pharaohs were roaming the country slaughtering and causing havoc the endings were at times edited using actors. These documentaries and many more can be accessed in the Motion Theatre section of the Library.
In reality these Monsters showcased were still out there and more high profile than ever. Of course meaning that one false move, one slip up, one sighting could end their freedom and reign of terror. Therefore these high profile Monsters had to find ways to go undetected. In 1945 these article appeared inside Marvel comic books across the world. The advert stated that genuine replica masks could be purchased. The demand was so high that within week people everywhere were walking around in them, streets filled with Phantoms and Wolfmen. The Library was in undated by sightings of their most wanted monsters that the Curators were stretched to within breaking point. All cases reported and investigated came back as negative; simply they were just sightings of humans in their purchased mask of choice.
The actual Monsters had gone about undetected, this is one of few cases where Monsters have worked together to avoid detection and achieved such. It is a moment in the Library’s history that is tarnished to this day.
