Alex Ross (“Kingdom Come”) has largely been off of interior art work for quite some time. Finally, he’s back on the inside alongside writer Chris Roberson for Dynamite’s pulp-filled crossover event, Masks. When all goes to political hell in an alternate 1938, masked heroes The Shadow, The Green Hornet, Kato, and The Spider band together to take on the seediest of organized criminals. I’d say this one is worth it for Ross’ artwork alone, but knowing Chris Roberson, the story will probably be just as good. If you’re not convinced, you will be after the preview.

The crossover you’ve been waiting for! Before superheroes, there were Masks!
The Shadow, the Green Hornet, Kato, the Spider and more in a story that only Dynamite could tell! For the first time EVER, these masked vigilantes are joining together in one EPIC series! It’s 1938, and the Justice Party has swept into office in New York State. But the newly-elected officials are in the control of powerful criminals, who quickly corrupt the law to their own advantage. When a fascist police state is instituted, the only ones who stand in defense of the innocent are masked vigilantes like the Shadow, the Green Hornet, Kato, and the Spider. As the confrontation builds, more masked heroes will join the fight including Black Bat, Miss Fury, Black Terror, Green Lama and many more! When the law is unjust, justice must be an outlaw!
