The adventure of Lord Henry Baltimore continues.
In Baltimore: The Curse Bells #3, Lord Henry Baltimore finds himself in the middle of a supernatural ritual in which a pregnant woman is being sacrificed by a priest to raise a dead witch from beyond the grave. The ritual is completed and the witch is born again. The priest wants the witch to grant him the power to put a curse on the bells of a famous church which will give him the ability to control others around him. While Baltimore is captured by the priestâ€™s men, there is a reveal that may answer a lot of Baltimoreâ€™s unanswered questions.
Baltimore: The Curse Bells continues to be an exciting and intense story. This issue, in particular, reveals the stakes that Lord Baltimore has been looking for all along.
I really enjoyed what this issue had to offer. The readers of this miniseries are halfway into this five-issue run and the story keeps getting better and better. The writing by Christopher Golden and Mike Mignola continues to impress me. I can tell that this story will have repercussions that will lead into future stories. The art by Ben Stenbeck is impressive. The mood is definitely represented in Stenbeckâ€™s detailed pencils. The colors by Dave Stewart never disappoint. The colors bring life to this already unique and wonderful story.
If you havenâ€™t been reading this miniseries, you should go back and find the first two issues. The story is fantastic and the art is great to look at. Itâ€™s a must-read!
