Cullen Bunn (Deadpool, Magneto) dives into the world of the pulps as he is set to write Masks II for Dynamite Entertainment.
"I couldn't be more excited to be working on Masks II," says Bunn. "I've always loved these great classic characters that I will have the privilege of working with, and I'm striving to keep the tone of the pulps that have always been a big inspiration for me. I'll admit, this project is a little intimidating, because I've put together a very ambitious team-up story that readers will have to see to believe!"
The original Masks series from 2012 was done by Chris Roberson and Denis Calero with covers by Alex Ross. It featured classic pulp characters: The Shadow, The Spider, The Green Hornet and Kato. The new series promises to follow the themes set by it's predecessor but be accessible to new readers.
Bunn recently had his Dynamite debut with The Shadow #0 that teamed the supernatural vigilante with legendary escape artist Harry Houdini. The art team and release date for the new series have not yet been announced.
