    It is a minor criticism, and very far from a damning one. Honestly, I feel like a bit of a jerk for mentioning it, because this is an issue that delivered in a big way and I really enjoyed it. Everyone involved, from writing to illustrating to colouring, lettering, and editing, has given it their all. It's a big moment for the series, and I'm happy to report it lives up to expectations. You'll have fun with this one for sure. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Kevin Mak Oct 21, 2013

    This issue balances a solid, high fantasy horror narrative with artwork that sets the bleak tone of the setting. Mike Magnola and Christopher Golden establish a wonderfully dreary protagonist with Lord Henry Baltimore. As his hunt for Hiagus continues, the anti-hero unravels a sinister plot behind the vampire epidemic. If you like horror adventures, Baltimore: The Infernal Train is a great read. Read Full Review

    All of the Baltimore series have been great fun to read and defied clich by imbuing the hero with enough twists and turns to give readers a story that's exciting and new each issue. Hopefully the shocking cover will grab readers; if not, the story itself will. Don't miss this series. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell Oct 16, 2013

    This creative team is known for consistently high-quality work, but The Infernal Train #2 had to be one of the most exciting issues of Lord Baltimores saga thus far. The story has continued to develop in an intriguing direction, while most of this installment was surprisingly action-packed and quick-paced. Mignola and company seem to hit all the right notes with this one, and it will be interesting to see how they wrap up the current arc next month. Read Full Review

    Baltimore continues to be one of the most consistently great comics out there. This issue’s new revelation and twist wasn’t my favorite from this series, but I’ve learned to trust Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden a Read Full Review

    The short and skinny is that, even steeped in the past, with colors and set ups to further convey a dated feel, Mignola and company do a great job of keeping this character and issue relevant as well as interesting. Read Full Review
