The article aims to trace the transmedia narrative of gendered otherness in John Logan’s Penny Dreadful. After a brief introduction to the theoretical framework concerning the subversive constructions of neo-Victorian monstrosity, the article examines the character of Miss Vanessa Ives in Penny Dreadful as an example of the fortunate intersection between the concepts of abjection and female agency.
