"It still takes something special to impose a unifying vision, and Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden have got it." - The Wall Street Journal
The critically-acclaimed BALTIMORE series by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden continues in BALTIMORE: THE PLAY, released today by Dark Horse Comics.
In Baltimore: The Play, a mad playwright puts on a Grand Guignol featuring actors that are real vampires. The evil financier of the play makes a bizarre discovery when he finds out that the playwright is a fraud and the true author is the disembodied head of a famous American author kept in a glass case.
