PREVIEW: Vampire Harpooning in Mike Mignola’s ‘Baltimore: The Plague Ships’

Just in time for Shark Week, one peg-legged vampire-slayer is ready to man the harpoons!

Tomorrow sees the first issue in Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden's Baltimore: The Plague Ships, a 5-issue mini-series that fills in some of the nooks and crannied from their gothic novel Baltimore; or the Steadfast Tin Soldier. You need not have read the original novel to enjoy a WWI revenge tale featuring a one-legged badass poking holes in some proto-nazi bloodsuckers. You just need functioning eyes and a gut. 

Here's a look at Witchfinder artist Ben Stenbeck's gorgeous pages. Dig that red, my friends. 

Bring it!


  1. I love that third page.  The silhouette on read looks striking.

  2. third page pwns. Very manga-feel.

  3. Josh sold me on this in the "Light Week?" article – looks amazing and visually appealing.

  4. Will get this. Now, have to get the prose novel, too. Look very much forward to this.

  5. I was interested in this but that looks amazing – I’m definitely reading it now.

  6. I was going to trade wait on this but… I don’t think I can.


  7. yes the book is gorgeous. I been waiting on this for three months. I am so excited. 

  8. This looks great. Can’t wait. There really aren’t enough WWI era stories out there (compared to say WWII) despite it being one of the most horrifically fascinating times in world history.
