GO APE WITH A NEW BALTIMORE ADVENTURE FROM DARK HORSE

The monster hunting adventures of Lord Baltimore got a new collection this week and Dark Horse Comics has a special treat for us in the form of a preview of an all-new eight-page story. Only seen in the second Baltimore Omnibus, this new story from writers Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden, artist Ben Stenbeck, colorist Dave Stewart, and letterer Clem Robins, has the grizzled hunter facing off against a giant ape. I am so in.

"Mike Mignola posted his Baltimore vs. Giant Ape ‘Year of Monsters’ cover on Facebook one day,” said co-writer Christopher Golden. “I think it was Ben Stenbeck who replied with ‘I wish we’d done that story,’ and I immediately said, ‘it’s not too late.’ Mike was totally up for it, of course. The original 1933 ‘King Kong’ is one of my favorite films of all time, so this was simultaneously our love letter to that movie and a chance to do something incredibly fun with Baltimore. It was a treat to get to work with Ben again, particularly on something that is like a little gift to Baltimore fans—and to ourselves."

"I always wanted to come back to Baltimore in some way, especially on a story as fun and action-packed as this, based on Mike's brilliant ‘Year of Monsters’ Baltimore cover,” said Ben Stenbeck. “It's not King Kong, just a giant ape. I'm really glad I've had this chance to revisit the world of Baltimore."

The second Baltimore Omnibus collects Baltimore: The Witch of Harju #1-#3, Baltimore: The Wolf and the Apostle #1-#2, Baltimore: The Cult of the Red King #1-#5, Baltimore: Empty Graves #1-#5, Baltimore: The Red Kingdom #1-#5, and of course, this new 8-page story. It's currently available at bookstores and Amazon.
