Novelist Christopher Golden and Mike Mignola are teaming to bring us Lady Baltimore, an all-new five-part series that will feature artwork by Bridgit Connell.
“It starts with a bloody trap and rumors of Baltimore’s ghost,” said co-writer and novelist Christopher Golden in a press release from Dark Horse Comics. “And things only get bloodier and weirder from there.”
Her name was Sofia Valk. Once she lived in an Estonian village, before the evil came. But when Europe erupted with the early battles of World War II, it was time for Sofia Valk to embrace her destiny as Lady Baltimore. In time, Sofia Valk became Lord Baltimore’s most trusted ally, but without him she must take on the fight herself. Can she fight monsters without becoming a monster herself?
“LADY BALTIMORE is the start of something big and unexpected,” continued Golden. “The series springs from the pages of the BALTIMORE comics and novel, but it has a different sensibility and a dynamic new lead protagonist. It’s perfect for new readers, who can start with issue 1 and not miss a beat, while longtime fans will be thrilled to see how the BALTIMORE mythos evolves, as some familiar faces encounter brand new characters and fresh terrors.”
“There are witches and Nazis and vampires, all kinds of crazy monster action—What more can you want from a comic?” asked Mike Mignola. “Oh, and there’s art by Bridgit Connell, who is great. I had the pleasure of going back and forth with her on some of the creature designs and it was a real pleasure. So happy to have her on board for this.”
Lady Baltimore #1 arrives on June 16, 2020.
