This just popped up on Amazon. Comes out June 28, and apparently it's a hardcover volume.

This last issue was really great. Loved the art! Ben Stenbeck does an excellent job, and of course Dave Stewart is brilliant as usual. Especially loved the plague vampires in old dive suits.
It was a great issue. One question, The woman at the end branded by the inquisitor. Was that either Vanessa or her Grandmother, I could not tell. I would hate to think she made it back only to meet a cruel fate.
^ I think it was the Grammy, but I'm not positive... I think Vanessa's coming home to some trouble.
"Hi. I have pants on."
"It's a Fez. I wear a Fez now... Fez's are cool."
I'm pretty sure it was granny. Well looks like we'll have to wait till May for more Baltimore material. Can't wait.
Currently reading:47 Ronin, Creepy, Frankenstein Alive Alive, The Goon, Haunted Horror, Hellboy, To Hell You Ride
Can't wait for the next mini!
Issue 5 was the best of the series. Fun fight. I still can't get over how amazing Stenbeck is. He's a mad man. If I end up continuing with Baltimore it will be for the art alone.
Enjoyed the run finally got around to it, more please!
Finally got around to reading Baltimore: The Plague Ships. Read all five back to back. Never read the original novel, but it was pretty fun. It was a well-constructed introduction, and I look forward to seeing it develop.
In the Post War section in the back of the books, I found some interesting stuff. Firstly, in issue #5:
Sounds like we're getting The Curse Bells in June then. I hadn't expected it so soon.The Baltimore story leads into The Curse Bells, the next miniseries, coinciding with a hardcover collection of The Plague Ships.
Then there's Scott Allie's comment in issue #3:
Woah! More Moon and Bá drawing for the Mignolaverse! How did no one mention this!? Anyway, sounds interesting. Of course this is a project they are considering, so it's by no means certain it will even happen. Even still, I like hearing these little rumblings.Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá present a new hardcover edition of DeTales, the book that first brought their work to our attention, leading to Umbrella Academy, Sugarshock, 1948 (I believe that’s a typo, supposed to be 1947)… and a new project we’re all considering, bringing them back into the Mignolaverse.
I hope the hardcover is the same size as The Amazing Screw-On Head, they would look nice together :)
Preview of A Passing Stranger.
Also, I can't remember where I read this, so excuse the lack of a link, but after The Curse Bells we'll be getting a couple of short stories of Baltimore. Whether these will be one-shots or shorts I don't know, but if they are shorts, they would be perfect for Dark Horse Presents, I think.
That page is abit of a spoiler.
But its a cool story, cant wait for you guys to read it. I think the idea after curse bells (I just finished penciling issue 2.) is to do some small stories. 1 or 2 issues each. I think.
Are you still onboard for the art of those short ones? (Please say yes)
