Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden are at it again, collaborating once more to bring us another adventurous story in the life of their deadly vampire hunter, Captain Lord Henry Baltimore. First of a three-issue mini-series, but number twenty-one in the full series, Baltimore: The Witch Of Harju #1 begins as many tales do, in the middle. Why, you ask?

The Portent: Ashes review header image

The Portent: Ashes
Written and Illustrated by Peter Bergting
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: June 18, 2014
Cover Price: $17.99

When your home is gone and those who raised you and trained you have also become your greatest betrayers, whom can you trust? In Dark Horse’s The Portent: Ashes, a sequel graphic novel to Peter Bergting’s The Portent: Duende, Bergting brings the character of Lin to the forefront as she searches for answers of her own.

Ten years after having defeated the demon Guishen, the wood nymph turned warrior Lin finds herself returned to the land of the living from the spirit realm, only to discover she has no physical home to return to. Once again torn between the coven of witches that would use her, her respect for a father figure of old, and her love for the warrior Milo, Lin must travel the outskirts of an old, yet oddly new land to confront those who would bring it harm – even if those individuals are the ones who helped raise her.

DomovoiDomovoi
Trade Paperback
Written by Peter Bergting
Illustrated by Peter Bergting
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: June 19, 2013
Cover Price: $19.99

Acclaimed artist and storyteller Peter Bergting (known for Strange Girl, Crysis, and Dark Sun) brings European folklore alive and drops it right into the recent past of the 20th Century in the pages of Domovoi from Dark Horse Comics.

His protagonist Jennie, a friendly café waitress in Stockholm, knows that her life is not exactly typical—she lives with a talking cat, her grandmother is a renowned sorceress, and her “uncle” Ivan is really a protective house spirit known as a Domovoi—but she never knew things could be stranger until her grandmother dies and leaves her with an unexpected responsibility.

I chose H.P. Lovecraft’s The Dunwich Horror #1 to review just because I’m a fan of Lovecraft. I was quite happy to find that Joe R. Lansdale had written the script for the first story in this comic. I’ve met him several times since he lives in the same small Texas town as I do. Both the stories were entertaining and as dark as you would expect from a Lovecraftian piece.

The first story, the self titled The Dunwich Horror is obviously just the beginning to a great horror story. The first few pages contain no dialogue but are there to set the mood. Ambiguously suspenseful dialogue between the characters really does little to assist the reader in understanding what is going on, but it lends itself to the mystery and makes you flip the pages that much faster to try to find out what’s next…just like a good story should.  Peter Bergting‘s art is almost like it was done with watercolors in that he blends features and colors to create a lot of dusk-like panels. The near dark atmosphere is one that always works in horror movies and it seems to do just fine in comics, too. Not much can be said to spoil the story here but it really is one that you need to read to get a sense of the ambiance that Lansdale and Bergting present to the reader.
