Summer is well and truly upon us, and that means that you're probably thinking about taking a trip. The thing is, though, you don't want to just do the same things everyone else is doing, right? I mean, nothing ruins a vacation faster than having to deal with other people who also want to see the World's Largest Corndog.
So if you're looking for a good place to take a vacation, might I suggest flipping through Mike Mignola, Christopher Golden, Peter Bergting, and Michelle Madsen's Baltimore: Empty Graves #4? You'll get the next chapter of the supernatural mystery that they're telling, of course, but you'll also get a quirky list of offbeat vacation destinations, like "the cell in Padua where Pietro D'Abano was tortured to death by the Inquisition," or "the books in the forbidden library in Cairo"! And you can check out a preview right now!
Here's the problem with living in a place called "The Drowning City." Actually, strike that --- you can probably guess most, if not all of the problems with living there just from the name. Like, say, the fact that the city itself is drowning, which means that there are a whole lot of citizens who are also being dropped into a watery grave. But, on the bright side, I imagine that means there are a whole lot of cheap apartments you can check out if you bring your own SCUBA equipment.
Really, though, there's a much bigger problem facing Joe Golem in the pages of Joe Golem #5, the last issue of the miniseries from Mike Mignola, Christopher Golden and Patric Reynolds that ties into their illustrated novel: Zombies. Lots and lots of waterlogged zombies that are dead set (ha) on taking out the living. Check out a preview!
Joe Golem is an illustrated novel from Christopher Golden and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, set in a world full of monsters where a good chunk of Manhattan sank into the sea in 1925, giving rise to a "Drowning City" full of waterlogged skyscrapers and unknown horrors.
Now, Mignola and Golden are bringing their pulpy, monstrous detective story to comics. Dark Horse announced this week that Mignola and Golden will be cowriting Joe Golem: Occult Detective, a five-issue miniseries with art and color by Patric Reynolds and Dave Stewart, set in the mid-'60s, ten years before the events of the novel.
On sale now is Baltimore: The Plague Ships, the first volume of a new graphic novel series by Mike Mignola, creator of Hellboy, one of the greatest comic book fantasy/adventure heros ever. Co-written with novelist Christopher Golden (Bloodstained Oz) and illustrated by Ben Stenbeck, Baltimore chronicles the dark travels of Lord Henry Baltimore, a soldier of World War I whose obsessive mission is to wipe out the monster whose plague has transformed much of Europe's population into horrible vampires...
The First World War was often referred to, during the time of the war and its immediate aftermath, as "The Great War." Obviously it didn't take on the title of World War I until there was also a World War II...
