Review: Baltimore: Empty Graves #3

28460

Baltimore continues his journey to Constantinople, where his search for the Blood-Red Witch leads to the royal family.

Baltimore, sometimes a hero, sometimes a madman, and sometimes even tomb raider. Written by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden, Baltimore: Empty Graves #3 is filled with a slightly more exotic landscape, as Baltimore’s hunt for the Red King leads him to Constantinople. A landscape divided by politics, as worshipers for the Red King practice a ritual under the nose of most.

The strange plant woman creature is gorgeously well done by artist Peter Bergting. Even the strange, monstrous, creations that the Red King made are creepy. They all have an almost ethereal like in appearance, despite the heavy use of reds in their demonic skin. It all works together to evoke the vibe we’ve come to expect in Mignola’s world.
