Origin stories can be difficult to incorporate, especially when it’s a character that is not as prevalent as others might be. Thanks to creators Mike Mignola and Ben Stenbeck, we get a deep dive into the life and times of an immortal killer in Koshchei The Deathless #1.

I’m not sure that Shelley would have ever believed the legacy that her gothic novel would leave when she first composed it in the early 19th century. A dark and brooding tale, it has flourished with time and has seen consistent reworkings over the last century, though few show much originality. In Frankenstein Underground #1, however, we are given a chance to see what might have happened to the creature that Victor Frankenstein created almost two centuries ago.

Baltimore: The Infernal Train
Written by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden

Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: September 4, 2013
Cover Price: $3.50

I took on this assignment without knowing that there was an illustrated novel and several comic book series preceding it. Mike Mignola‘s name stood out, I like his Hellboy stuff, and have several volumes of that series on my shelf. Plus, it was a #1, so I figured this was a good place to start.

It wasn’t. Baltimore: The Infernal Train #1 is intended for readers already familiar with the characters, both seen and unseen. And because it’s so spare, there’s little else to grab your interest. Unless you’ve been chomping at the bit for more stories about vampires. (I haven’t).
