...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!
I picked this up yesterday and look forward to seeing Lord Baltimore's story unfold. Ben Stenbeck's art feels like a perfect match for the dark story. I'm a big fan of zeppelins so I was thrilled to see one in this comic. What could be better than a zeppelin crewed by a bunch of vampires? Why an exploding zeppelin, of course. It was a compelling series of panels that depicted a bird emerging from the mouth of a freshly killed vampire and flying up into the sky. It seemed like a benign bird too. Maybe it symbolises the spirit of the person who became the vampire being released.
Baltimore and his new sidekick Vanessa will learn the nature of the Plague Ships pretty soon. And so will we.
