It’s Capes vs. Tommy Guns in Masks and Mobsters
Masks and Mobsters was hailed as one of the best webcomics of the year when it was released by MonkeyBrain in 2012, and now the Image Comics imprint Shadowline is bringing it to print in style, with a deluxe hardcover edition that collects all seven issues. Written by Joshua Williamson and drawn by Mike Henderson, Ryan Cody, Jason Copland, and Justin Greenwood, Masks and Mobsters explores the secret stories of superheroes and mobsters vying for control of Golden City.
Writer Williamson imagines a world where, in the 1930s and ‘40s, superheroes and supervillains didn’t start appearing just in the pages of comic books but in flesh-and-blood life, confronting the underground powers that had maintained a fearful status quo.
Masks and Mobsters is a 128-page, black and white hardcover, retailing for $19.99 (ISBN 978-1-60706-765-8). It will be in stores on July 3 and can be pre-ordered from the May issue of Previews.
