Dark Horse Does Vampires Right, with Baltimore: The Plague Ships


Dark Horse Just sent over this hilarious promo image for Baltimore: The Plague Ships, from Mike Mignola, Christopher Golden, and Ben Stenbeck.

Baltimore: The Plague Ships is based on the fabulous novel Baltimore, or, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire, written by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden.

I greatly enjoyed the novel of ‘Baltimore’, and am really looking forward to seeing the story illustrated by Ben Stenbeck! If you’ve not read the story before, you’re in for a real treat, and if you have read it, you’ll still not want to miss this!

See the solicitation, after the image.


Months after a devastating plague ends World War I, Europe is suddenly flooded with deadly vampires. Lord Henry Baltimore, a soldier determined to wipe out the monsters, is on the hunt for the creature responsible for this chaos and his own personal tragedy. What he uncovers is a terror as horrific and frightening as any he’s seen on the battlefield.

* Based on the novel by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden.

* Mike Mignola reunites with Witchfinder artist Ben Stenbeck!

Praise for Baltimore or The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire:

“Mythic adventure, midway between Lovecraft and the Brothers Grimm. The book burns with black inspiration.” -Sci Fi Magazine

“Outstanding, gorgeously told and wildly inventive. Mike Mignola’s outstanding black-and-white illustrations turn the book into a beautiful object and add to its overall storybook quality. He and Golden have outdone themselves with Baltimore, a gorgeous, haunting tale that may well become a classic.” -Fangoria
