MIKE MIGNOLA & CHRISTOPHER GOLDEN REUNITE FOR LADY BALTIMORE

Baltimore, the gristled monster hunter comic may be over, but his world continues in Lady Baltimore, a new five-issue mini-series from Dark Horse Comics beginning in June 2020. Written by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden, illustrated by Bridgit Connell, and lettered by Michelle Madsen, the comic takes place 13 years after Baltimore: The Red Kingdom. It centers on Sofia Valk who lived in an Estonian village before the evil came and Europe erupted with the early battles of World War II. That's when she embraced her destiny as Lady Baltimore. Over time she became Lord Baltimore's most trusted ally, but with him gone, she must take on the fight herself.

“It starts with a bloody trap and rumors of Baltimore’s ghost,” said Christopher Golden. “And things only get bloodier and weirder from there. Lady Baltimore is the start of something big and unexpected. 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.”

“I love the story and the hero that is Lady Baltimore. On the surface, she's this kick-ass heroine who gets the job done, but underneath it all is the turmoil revolving around learning how to carry the weight and legacy of her new title,” said artist Bridgit Connell, who is collaborating with Mignola and Golden for the first time. “And as an artist, it's a ton of fun for me to help create all these unique covens of evil witches and cool new monsters (like those creeptastic harpies) that'll be causing serious chaos throughout the series.”

“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 is just the beginning of a large, sweeping story,” said Golden. “We’re weaving a crazy dark tapestry of horrors in this book, telling intimate stories in the midst of broad scope action. We’re all having a blast. It’s the perfect time for readers to discover this universe.”

Lady Baltimore #1 is set for release on June 10th, 2020.
