Comic Book A Day – Day 30 – Baltimore: Dr Leskovar’s Remedy (2012)

Baltimore Mike Mignola

Although his Vampire serum can turn him into a giant monster, alas it cannot cure his male pattern baldness.

If you’ve been reading my blog, you know I fricking love Mike Mignola’s work.  Creating your own vastly successful universe outside of the big 2 publishers and getting people to really care about and most importantly buy your comics is a huge feat!

Lord Baltimore Mike Mignola

Wood eye? Wood eye? Peg leg! Peg Leg!

Mignola has been expanding his universe even more with Baltimore.  I have to admit, this is the first issue of any Baltimore series I’ve read.  I know nothing about the character, I don’t know if it’s taking place in the same time period as the current Hellboy and B.P.R.D. arcs and I don’t know if it’s even in the same universe proper.

The point is, I don’t care!  I still loved it.  Mignola along with Christopher Golden have set up another intriguing tale of the supernatural and man’s battle against it and Ben Stenbeck’s art is Mignola-verse perfect.

All this did was make me want to go out and buy every Baltimore back issue out there!

I’m giving Baltimore: Dr Leskovar’s Remedy 5 out of 6 Aaron (to be fair if I knew what had happened last issue, I might have given it a 6, so let’s call it a 5.5).

Make Mine Mignola!
