An officer in the Great War, Lord Baltimore awoke on the battlefield to find his leg obliterated and his men being feasted upon by a terrible winged beast. A clash between Baltimore and the monster resulted in a plague so terrible that it ends the war and infects countless men and women with vampirism, including Baltimore's own family.
Consequently, Lord Baltimore dedicates his life to hunting down the beast who wrecked the world. These moments of rushed and muddied artwork are a shame because Stenbeck proves to be quite a capable draftsman, as the supplemental sketchbook and pinups indicate.
Taken as a whole, the artwork isn't bad and, in fact, has some truly amazing and wicked moments, but it suffers from a lack of attention to detail. Dave Stewart's coloring saves it from being a total loss, and gives the book a subdued, dark atmosphere that serves the writing's tone suitably.
Stenbeck is able to translate Mignola and Golden's script adequately, and creates several powerful, pinup-worthy images. One in particular, of the undead submarine crew reanimating, some clad in armored dive suits, is stunning and awesome. It introduces a terrific new vampire-hunting hero and establishes a strong plague-filled playground for the book's creators to run wild with.
