Cullen Bunn Teams With Eman Cassalos For Masks 2

Dynamite has announced the full creative team for Masks 2, the sequel to 2012-2013's Masks. Artist Eman Cassalos (Alice Cooper) joins writer Cullen Bunn (Deadpool) in a comic book event uniting such pulp characters as The Shadow, Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt, Lady Satan, Black Terror, Green Hornet, Zorro, and more. Masks 2 will feature covers by artists including Butch Guice, Jae Lee, Gabriel Hardman, Colton Worley, Sean Chen, and Robert Hack.

The original Masks series launched in 2012 with its #1 issue selling over 70,000 copies. Drawn to the premise by the work of painter Alex Ross, writer Chris Roberson, and artist Dennis Calero, readers thrilled to an adventure that united classic characters like The Shadow, The Spider, The Green Hornet, and Kato against a cadre of corrupt politicians and their fascist police state. Masks 2 promises to expand the scope dramatically beyond even what the first series presented, while simultaneously serving as an entry point for new, curious readers.

"I'm introducing a new villain called the Red Death who is plaguing the heroes in three different time periods," says Bunn. "Again and again, she resurfaces, in the '30s, the '70s, and the present day. Her agenda is a bit of a mystery… but our heroes will start to see just how dangerous the Red Death can be. Her machinations definitely have the potential to bring all of civilization to ruin."

Masks 2 #1 will be solicited in the February 2015 Previews catalog and slated for release in April.
