I hope you enjoyed the first issue of Baltimore: The Witch of Harju yesterday. We’re in a new phase of the series now! It seems like a good time to have a chat with the creative team behind the books about it all, don’t you think?
Originally, Mike Mignola conceived of Baltimoreas a comic, but when the idea grew too big, the concept was re-purposed as an illustrated novel by Christopher Golden. In the novel, despite it being named after Lord Baltimore, the character appears surprisingly little. Instead of being the main character, he instead acts as the engine for the story. The real leads are Baltimore’s friends, Thomas Childress Jr., Captain Demetrius Aischros, and Dr. Lemuel Rose, as they sit in a London pub talking about their encounters with Lord Baltimore and the supernatural.
Could you tell us a little about adapting this story from comic to illustrated novel, Christopher? Was the story within a story approach always a part of the original concept, or was it something that evolved as you adapted it?
Christopher Golden: I’ve known Mike a long time. Frequently, on the phone, he’d mention this “vampire graphic novel” he wanted to do, and one day he phoned me up and said he’d realized he would never have time to draw it but that it might make a great illustrated novel… and did I want to collaborate with him on it? I could take all of his thoughts and the plot he had and fill in the holes, flesh it out into a full-length novel, etc. Of course I jumped at it, so you see it wasn’t that the story was too big for comics but that Mike liked the idea too much to let it just sit in the back of his brain forever and not come to life. He’s a perfectionist with his own art and that is very time consuming.
