Review: Baltimore: Empty Graves #4


Led to a sultan’s tomb in their search for the Blood-Red Witch, Baltimore and his companions get answers from unexpected sources that will lead them not only to the witch, but to the Red King as well.

In Baltimore: Empty Graves #4 things get strange as the origin tale of the living dead sultans is revealed. Writer Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden manage to share the tale of how the Blood-Red Witch came to her current moniker back when she was human. It all leads to a climatic and intriguing fight scene revealing even more. This comic deals with more of the past than some previews issues.

The tale of the past is well drawn by Peter Bergting. The art creates an interesting portrait especially with the design of the body of Blood-Red Witch, in particular, the use of color. The fight scenes are superb and manage to flow well. It all comes together to give the comic a dire sense of urgency, and action.
