BALTIMORE: EMPTY GRAVES #1 and LOBSTER JOHNSON: THE FORGOTTEN MAN Preview (Exclusive)

Something spooky this way comes to make your Monday even better than it hopefully already is: a pair of Mignolaverse comics previews! While Hellboy may be winding down, the rest of the weird, wild world envisioned by Mike Mignola and his cohorts is thriving and stronger than ever. Case in point, the two exclusive first-look previews we have for your today of Baltimore: Empty Graves #1 and Lobster Johnson: The Forgotten Man. 

The former follows our heartless hero, Lord Baltimore, as he grieves for the friends he lost in the fight against the Red King. Unfortunately for him, the Red King’s followers have nefarious plans for the corpses of Baltimore’s dearly departed pals. The latter of the two is a rollicking one-shot following Lobster Johnson hot on the case of a missing priest. Of course, nothing is ever easy for Lobster Johnson, and his hunt for the truth will take him into the muck and the mire of the sewers.

You can preview both titles in our exclusive gallery below.
