Baltimore: The Plague Ships

Image


On a cold autumn night, under a black sky leeched of starlight and absent the moon, Captain Henry Baltimore clutched his rifle and stared across the dark abyss of the battlefield, and knew in his heart that these were the torture fields of Hell, and damnation awaited mere steps ahead.

Such was the premise for the illustrated gothic novel BALTIMORE, or, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire by celebrated comic artist Mike Mignola and award-winning novelist Christopher Golden. Reminiscent of the illustrated tales of old, here is a lyrical, atmospheric novel of the paranormal -- and a chilling allegory for the nature of war.

Now you may follow the story of Lord Henry Baltimore in the new comics from Mike Mignola, Christopher Golden, Ben Stenbeck, and Dave Stewart, published by Dark Horse Comics:


  • Baltimore: The Plague Ships #1
    • Months after a devastating plague ends World War I, Europe is suddenly flooded with deadly vampires. Lord Henry Baltimore, a soldier determined to wipe out the monsters, is on the hunt for the creature responsible for this chaos and his own personal tragedy. What he uncovers is a terror as horrific and frightening as any he's seen on the battlefield.

  • Baltimore: The Plague Ships #2
    • Setting sail from a harbor choked with sunken ships, where plague victims are burned in great furnaces, Lord Baltimore reveals a terrible incident that took place during the war, where his men fell victim to creatures that feast on the freshly dead, and Baltimore himself first met the vampire who has become his obsession.

    • After a furious storm rips apart their ship, Baltimore and Vanessa wash up on an island shore in the midst of a graveyard of submarines. While taking refuge they stumble upon a ruined plague ship--a vessel used to burn vampires--now entrenched in a grotesque and dangerous fungus.

    • Released here: viewtopic.php?p=684638#684638

Comic book characters wearing their most 'flexible' summer holidays outfit, colorfully drawn and published in .CBR format. Not real stories or books to turn them all into releases, but so refreshing and beautiful that it would be a waste to keep them for myself. Just tap the cover to go to the release post on this forum or to get the MU download link, and enjoy!

Image Robin Hood Comics


    * As a public domain character with an established reputation, Robin Hood was an attractive feature for comic book publishers from the birth of the medium. The first continuing Robin Hood stories were written and drawn by Sven Elven and appeared in the DC Comics title, New Adventure Comics vol. 1 #23 through #30 (1938). There was also a Robin Hood back up story in Green Hornet #7 through #10, written by S. M. Iger.
    * A small renaissance of Robin Hood comics occurred in the late 1950s, starting with the little known "Rodger of Sherwood" stories in the Young Heroes anthology series #39 through #37 by American Comics Group. That same year, Robin got his first title comic book from Magazine Enterprises which ran for eight issues, three with a Richard Greene photo cover. Brown Shoe Co., maker of Robin Hood Shoes, published seven giveaway issues starting in 1956. Robin soon attracted attention from more established comic publishers such as Charlton Comics, who retitled Danger and Adventure to Robin Hood and His Merry Men starting with issue #28. Quality comics published Tales of Robin Hood until issue #7, then was bought by DC Comics who continued until issue #13 and included a crossover with Wonder Woman, making it the longest lasting English language Robin Hood series. DC also published Robin Hood stories in their Brave and the Bold anthology series from #5 to #15.
    * In the 1960s, Dell published a couple of Robin Hood one-shots, one a re-telling of the traditional legend, the other a Disney TV show tie-in. Then, in 1974, Gold Key Comics produced a 7 issue tie-in with the Disney animated film. Eclipse published a three-part miniseries in 1991, perhaps a tie in with the Kevin Costner film. Finally, there have been various one-shots produced by Moonstone Books and Avalon Communications.
    * In 1991, DC produced a series called Outlaws, with writing by Michael Jan Friedman and art by Luke McDonnell. It was a re-imagining of the legend set in a future, somewhat post-apocalytic, time- something akin to the future depicted in films such as Mad Max.
    * Robin Hood and his band appear in one issue of the Vertigo Comics series Fables. Along with other folk heroes, they give their lives to buy time for the last ship to flee to the mundane world.
    * In 2007, Xeric award winning cartoonist Steve LeCouilliard began a comedy web-comic called "Much the Miller's Son" telling the story of Robin Hood from the point of view of a minor character. It has since been collected in two volumes with a third projected for summer 2011.
    * In 2011, mobilism.org released several comic books relating the story of our public hero, making them available to a large public. History will tell if it needs more for a site to be titled 'the Robin Hood of modern times'...

Our HellBoy comics collection on mobilism is nearly complete. Though each book can be read as a standalone story, they follow a time-line with events and characters that frequently refer to previous issues. To make it easy for our readers to keep track of the HellBoy history, we've included in every issue a link to previous and next stories. Our time-line starts with the book titled 'Seed of Destruction', published in June 1994.

Just tap one of the arrows below to get there. From then on, simply navigate to the previous or next story. (The 'previous' arrow in the first issue links to the most recently published book, as we've created a never-ending loop...)

The Hit List Agenda series feature beautiful, smart, and deadly female characters. The life of these well trained assassins is difficult enough, but when emotion is added into the equation, the end is inevitable. Another certitude is those stories end up released on mobilism. Here they are:


The series are updated as soon as new issues are available. (Thanks, Zach! ;) )
