The Rundown: Lady Baltimore battle Nazis and nightmares to stop a deadly artifact from falling into the wrong hands.

A group of Nazis travel to the Italian Alps to secure a magical prize that can destroy whole armies with their own nightmares. The British government enlists the help of Lady Baltimore and Imogen to track down the artifact and remove it before it can be used again. A mission that will bring them face to face with not only a group of dangerous men, but the nightmares of their own past. Nightmares that Imogen will fight to hide from the woman she loves.

The Story: Mignola and Golden craft a fun and entertaining adventure in this issue. The story has some great pacing, thrills and action throughout. The characters are fantastic and engaging. I really loved the reveals and the backstory of Imogen. I also love the dark underlying tone of the story and what the truth Imogen is concealing will mean to her relationship with Lady Baltimore.

The Art: Connell delivers some beautifully detailed art that perfectly captures the thrills and terror in the story.
