...and it is pretty damn good
Release the Kraken.
damn straight. What a solid team at work on this book!
Agreed! Looks even better in color :)
"Okay, I know I said I wasn't going to shake things up, but we're going to have to get some pants on this one."
I haven't read Baltimore, or The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire, but I still thought this was an excellent issue.
Is it just me, or is the sequence with the bird flying out of the Vampire's mouth one of the best little throw away moments from this issue? Loved it!
totally agree JB. He fits this stuff so well. Remember how great he was on the Witchfinder series?
The feel, the grasp, the smell, the ringing, endless endless - ... - sorry.
Going only on the rich preview bits I got as yet, I gotta say it rocks. Like pioneering pulp high on daguerrotypes or industrious cinematographics!

I love how the Lord Balt looks so appropriately buff yet slim or boney, like he'd be tough as hot cooked nails for sure.
I also really love the crone seeing things in her soup bowl. So good it's steaming.
In response to the whole preview-thing I wrote to the editors: "go take the week off, this project can't go wrong" .
(I was merely kidding 'though.)

Chillingly good stuff besides Mignola, Slint, M, Knut and really big chunks of tinfoil?Been called a 'good egg'. Been told to rock, been told to steady myself. Been told to (please) be goin' places.

I'm going to have to wait for Trades on this one. I can't wait though. Looks amazing.
I didn't read the novel, but I loved this first issue. Great writing, great art. No complaints whatsoever.
It was good. Does this take place in the Hellboy Universe?
It is a self defeating action.
Trades are great for series you missed. (Davis' Marquis for example) But to not read them when you know they are available just to wait will eventually deprive you of the very book you want to read.
I'm terrible at waiting for trades. I buy monthlies in the Hellboy universe because I just can't stand the wait. One day, when back in Canada, I'll probably even buy the trades, but as it goes now, it's just not a wise choice.
