The first volume barely gets Baltimore through one sea voyage

The first volume barely gets Baltimore through one sea voyage. My one complaint is it ended too soon and left me hungry for more. While it is strongly recommended that you read the "Baltimore" book (Expertly written by Mignola and Golden as well as illustrated by the former) it is not necessarily a pre-requisite. The comic offers the proper amount of introduction to Henry Baltimore and his motivations for pursuing the Dread Vampire Lord Haigus throughout the first six issues of this series.

BALTIMORE: THE PLAGUE SHIPS marries its gothic sensibilities to a. .

BALTIMORE: THE PLAGUE SHIPS marries its gothic sensibilities to a post-war setting that works really well and provides some innovative settings in which the story can unfold. While Mignola and Golden aren't exactly reinventing the vampire genre, the trusty old warhorse of horror fiction if ever there were one, they at least populate it with interesting ideas and intriguing concepts. Dave Stewart's coloring saves it from being a total loss, and gives the book a subdued, dark atmosphere that serves the writing's tone suitably.

Eisner Award–winning horror master Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden present tales featuring the world’s greatest vampire hunter on a quest for vengeance across a world overrun by monsters. The third volume of the online comics anthology MySpace Dark Horse Presents digs deeply into Dark Horse's broad range of genres and iconic characters, including Stan Sakai's award-winning Usagi Yojimbo and Rob Reger's Emily the Strange.

In Lord Baltimore's world the First World War ended when a plague erupted unleashing zombies, vampires and other forgotten horrors into the ravished nations of Europe. Now with harpoons and rifles, knives and pistols, axes and sabres he destroys them one by one always hunting for the Vampire who killed his family and began the war between them and humanity.

I missed the prequel book Baltimore or the Steadfast Tin Soldier but writers Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden quickly bring us up to speed without skimping on the moody atmosphere or the action. I was briefly disappointed that Mignola was not doing the art but Ben Stenbeck does an excellent job creating Baltimore's world and invoking Mignola's style without imitating it.

And what a world. At first it seems to be WWI Europe but soon we see some signs things are a bit different. Not only are there zombies and vampires, there are steampunk submarines, robotic diving suits and enormous flying jellyfish.

It's obvious this is going to be a long-running series. The first volume barely gets Baltimore through one sea voyage. My one complaint is it ended too soon and left me hungry for more.

This is the series that I wanted lobster claw Johnson to be, unfortunately he had no backstory, emotion, and was kind of cheesy at times. This book grabs you right at the start and does not let go. I finished this and had to go buy the Ebooks that night, I couldn't wait. I am big Hellboy fan and I think this is shaping up to be better.

While it is strongly recommended that you read the "Baltimore" book (Expertly written by Mignola and Golden as well as illustrated by the former) it is not necessarily a pre-requisite.The comic offers the proper amount of introduction to Henry Baltimore and his motivations for pursuing the Dread Vampire Lord Haigus throughout the first six issues of this series. That being said,Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden, with the help of Ben Stenbeck, add to the mythos of their stalwart vampire hunter in this handsome volume. While chasing vampires across a war-torn and plague riddled Europe, Lord Baltimore crosses paths with a young gypsy woman who seeks to escape her life of drudgery and embarks on a particularly dangerous leg of Baltimore's journey to find Haigus. They'll run afoul of storms, giant jellyfish, and fungus zombies who wish them ill. Interspersed with this is the beginnings of Lord Baltimore the hunter and the black deeds he has witnessed and committed.

For those looking for a fantastic fusion of horror and break-neck adventure, look no further than Baltimore: the Plague Ships!

I have to confess that I absolutely love everything that Mike Mignola puts out. I own every hellboy and bprd series and am now starting on his other works. So when I saw this I had to read it too and it didn't disappoint. Though I haven't read the novel it is based on, its in my cart now for purchase. But even without reading it, these graphic novels are easy to understand and follow. This first set is a great start to this terrific series and leaves open plots to make way for the next collection. If you enjoy Mike and/or vampires you should definitely pick this up. It follows all general vampire rules and even adds more to the lore. Just go read it!

Mike Mignola hits another home run with Baltimore, a story about Lord Baltimore who makes an enemy out of the vampires when he returns from the war. Now, with his family gone, he dedicates his life, and his badass Harpoon, to hunting down every last one of them...and one in particular. Pure Mignola like nobody else.
Great action, great story, great dialogue... wonderful aesthetic to the entire book, dark, gloomy, and dangerous the entire time. If you thought Hellboy was a badass, you haven't been introduced to Lord Baltimore. He fights Vampires, Zombies, Nazi Zombies, Giant Floating Jellyfish... you name it. This book is insane and I absolutely love it.
You don't need to know anything about the Mignola-Verse (Hellboy, Witchfinder, BPRD, Lobster Johnson, Abe Sapien) to enjoy this book. Just pick it up and have fun!

Not a whole lot to say - I loved the story, and loved the art! This is one of those rare books that I'd really enjoy seeing as a movie, too; not to replace the book, but just to see more of this great world that's been created. And it is, indeed, an entire world that you feel you've been plunged into. Not a nice one, to be sure, but a VERY entertaining one. Highly recommended - can't wait to read more of Lord Baltimore's adventures.

The story is kind of formulaic, but the world it's set in is fascinating. Not only is the art totally retroVictorian, but the old fashioned look of that World really enhances the mood. The characters are a bit 2 dimensional. Wish something would happen soon
The drawings are wonderful. Makes me wish I had more drive to get a hand that draws what I wanted. However, the scenes are like vignettes from a movie. Or the other way around.
