Is It Good? Baltimore: The Infernal Train #1 Review

I’m feeling in a very fitting mood to ride on an Infernal train. Chug chug chug.


Baltimore: The Infernal Train #1 (Dark Horse)


Is It Good? Baltimore: The Infernal Train #1 Review

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Story by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden, and it’s pretty damn compelling. Vampires with strange motivations, the plague, and good ole’ wooden-legged Lord Baltimore. He’s in Budapest waiting to meet a friend, when the fangs start to fly. Things come to a head quite quickly. And things don’t slow once they hit a steady clip.

Art by Ben Stenbeck is solid; some fun facial expressions and blood splatters. Typical looking vampires, save for the use of color on them. But hey, they’re still some great looking vampires. This is one of those comics you read, and it makes you just want to go be a badass monster hunter. Although not one with a wooden leg; I imagine that would be a pain in the ass.

  • Hooks you, a good introduction.
  • Cool vampire mystery.
  • Issue zooms by.
  • Not sure where this is in the Baltimore timeline?

Is It Good?

It’s worth a buy. Definitely if you like Mignola, or the time of the plague, or vampiyahs. Solid first issue. The pacing is great, the vampires are green and vicious, and Baltimore kicks serious ass, as per usual. A solid start to an engaging period piece, juxtaposing the plague with vampires.
