In the alternate world of Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden’s Baltimore, Lord Henry Baltimore and his allies have attempted to halt the advance of the Red King and his army of monsters and vampires. They failed, then they went their separate ways. Lord Baltimore was even thought dead by his closest friends as he went underground to discover a way to end the Red King’s evil once and for all. Now, Baltimore is back…and it may already be too late to save humanity!
Mignola and Golden have reunited with artist Peter Bergting, colorist Michelle Madsen, and cover artist Ben Stenbeck for the final Baltimore storyline: Baltimore: The Red Kingdom. In the years since Baltimore’s disappearance, the Red King’s influence has expanded far beyond any expectations, and the last free nations may be only a few months away from eternal domination. “By the time the rest of the world took his evil seriously, it was too late to stop the Red King from coming to power. Now his evil spreads. The weak and the monstrous fall into line behind him. As the Red Kingdom grows, it’s never been more important to rise up and resist!”
In CraveOnline’s exclusive preview for Baltimore: The Red Kingdom # 2, a pair of soldiers deliver rare books that may hold the key to stopping the Red King’s reign. But in this case, their ally, Dr. Rose, may be even more terrifying than the Red King himself!
Here’s Dark Horse’s description of Baltimore: The Red Kingdom # 2:
“Protected by his armies marching on Rome, the Red King seems invulnerable as he takes his place at the Vatican for his coronation. How can the resistance hope to get close enough to confront him in human form?”
Baltimore: The Red Kingdom # 2 will be released tomorrow, March 1, in comic stores everywhere.
