Michael Bond passes away at the age of 91

It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to report that Paddington Bear creator Michael Bond has passed away at the age of 91 years old.

Bond published his first book, A Bear Called Paddington, in 1958.
The character, a marmalade-loving bear from “deepest, darkest Peru” who comes to live in London, went on to inspire a series of books, an animated TV series and a successful 2014 film.

His publisher Harper Collins announced that Bond passed away at his home on Tuesday following a short illness.
