    I can hardly imagine a more exciting way to combine World War I, vampires, the Inquisition, and witches than this one-shot, which is well-worth the time. Baltimore really is one of those rare characters whose books you have to wait months for, but which always pay off as a visual and narrative odyssey. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - ThemightyDarmick Jul 3, 2013

    The short and skinny is that this is a great read, with a dated feel and interesting world, but has the potential to go either very unique and interesting, or a variant of something seen before. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Johnson Jun 18, 2013

    This is a great one-shot and if you are a fan of Mignola then this will be a great read for you. If you are not familiar with his style and previous work then this is as good as any point to jump in and join in on the experience and you will be a fan too. Read Full Review

    It's a dark and brooding issue that manages to explain the character's backstory without being overly expository. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Carl Boehm Jun 19, 2013

    Although not as well known as Hellboy, Lord Baltimore does have my vote for Mignola’s best work. If you like storytelling, you will be entertained by the Baltimore series, including “The Inquisitor”. Read Full Review

    I find myself wanting to reread Baltimore from the beginning again. This story is the breath before the plunge, touching on elements from previous stories while setting pieces in place for something big. If you are a Baltimore fan, this is a story you can't afford to miss. Even if you're new to the series, The Inquisitor is easily accessible and well worth getting a hold of. Read Full Review

    Culture Mass - Stephen Wilds Jun 18, 2013

    A dark and depressive look at a war torn world that embraces the Gothic foundation of the previous books. This book is an interesting tale that focuses on its secondary characters to set-up for what should be a promising continuation. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair Jun 18, 2013

    Low on action, but high on plot, this story sets the stage for some exciting future issues. It's not the best issue of Baltimore, not by a long shot, but it's good enough. Read Full Review

    . . $3.50, 22pgs + 3pg prvw. B+ cover. This "One-shot" comic or Stand- Alone, is a full story and great exploration of the mysterious Judge Duvic! Alot of payoff for regular readers, and such a good comic its a great read for anyone. Deep, brooding, dark as always this issue is beautifully rendered in real pencil and INK. Dave Stewart really brings wonderful tones and color in all the right places. Really impressed with this one.
