5.0 out of 5 stars A plague of rich, original writing!
Set in the early 20th century, Lord Baltimore, Vampire Hunter, is hot on the heels of the aristocratic vampire who murdered his wife. Taking in everything from the bloody trenches of WW1, to a rural countryside blighted by the vampire curse, to submarine graveyards filled with zombies, and a prophecy of a forthcoming war between the living and the dead, "Baltimore" sees...

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing.
Pants, can't even remember what happened in it if anything at all. Loved Hellboy but this just seems below par.

This review is from: Baltimore: The Plague Ships TP (Baltimore (Quality Paperback)) (Paperback)
Set in the early 20th century, Lord Baltimore, Vampire Hunter, is hot on the heels of the aristocratic vampire who murdered his wife. Taking in everything from the bloody trenches of WW1, to a rural countryside blighted by the vampire curse, to submarine graveyards filled with zombies, and a prophecy of a forthcoming war between the living and the dead, "Baltimore" sees Mike Mignola and co. return to comics with another fantastic original series.

Ben Stenbeck returns to collaborate with Mignola after their first successful collaboration, "Witchfinder", became a success, and he does his best work in this book. The moody shadows and fiery battles are depicted wonderfully with styles ranging from the gothic to late 19th century romanticism.

Mignola supplies some of his best writing in this book. The book opens in a burst of action with the vampire hunter chasing vampires up to their zeppelin (!) and the pace never lets up from there on in. I won't go into the plot too much as it'll spoil some of the surprises for the reader, but suffice it to say that if you're a fan of Mike Mignola's, you won't be disappointed with this book. It's a real treat of supernatural adventure with dark magic and horror aplenty with a compelling main character in Baltimore. Mignola continues his winning streak in creating new series after Hellboy, BPRD, Abe Sapien, Witchfinder, and now Baltimore. A great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A treat for Mignola and horror fans anywhere, 7 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Baltimore: The Plague Ships TP (Baltimore (Quality Paperback)) (Paperback)
I bought this tentatively, being a big Mignola fan, and knowing this wasn't drawn by the master.

However, after getting used to that fact, this is a standalone work of very high quality. The rock solid story line is pure Mignola and the artwork by Chris Golden is really very good. It's Mignola enough to tie in with the overall universe but not copying, or trying to be part of Hellboy.

This is a definite future classic and I'm saving for the next volumes now.

Good comic but not very gripping from the start. had difficulty getting into it at first.
Expertly drawn and inked an dthe style and artistry is up to the usual high standards.

But might have just been me not feeling it!
