Hello Pulp Friends,

After my variant covers for HELLBOY THE FURY #1 and BPRD MONSTERS #1, it's time to reveal my third variant cover I did for Mike Mignola's wonderful creations.
This time it's the turn of BALTIMORE, the character created by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden in novel format and then extended (luckily for us) to the comibook format.
As for the previous titles, I was asked to draw a variant cover for issue 1 (only the first issues will get these variants), and I couldn't be happier to play with yet another cool (and a favorite of mine) character. Throw in some demonic possessed monastery, evil nuns, and cursed bells and you get all the ingredients for a FUN story (and cover) :)
Hope you guys dig it.

One more Mignola-related cover to reveal, but for that we have to wait next month ;)

Cheers,
Francesco

Awesome cover. Hope these won't be all you're doing with Mignola. I'd love to see you work on a miniseries with him.

Wonderful compilation. All the way down to the 350 cents. Very nice. Something else to look into...
