Baltimore: The Plague Ships TPB (2011 Dark Horse)

When you combine the talents of Mike Mignola, Christopher Golden, Ben Stenbeck, and Dave Stewart you are in for a treat!

We learn a lot in this book about Lord Baltimore's background and how he came face to face with the powerful vampire known as Haigus.

The storytelling is brisk and engaging and reveals in layers who Baltimore is and his grim hunt. Mignola and Golden know how to keep their audience's rapt attention.

This book is truly a horror story, with the scenes from the front lines in World War I France probably the most horrific.

Stenbeck is an excellent artist but Stewart's colors really mesh with his pencils to create a simple, haunting look to the work.

This is truly a classic!
