Masks & Mobsters #1 is a mash-up of some of the best genre work today. With notes of masked superheros, mob crime, and the perfectly noir gray tones, it’s not hard to get sucked into the world of Bobby Silver, who is embroiled in with a long-held grudge and hell bent on revenge. At $0.99 an issue, Masks & Mobsters is setting itself to be the only superhero crime series currently on the market, and definitely falls in the bracket of being “bang for the buck.”
During the Golden Age there was a sudden influx of costumed heroes and villains… but how did that affect the politics and business of the Mob? How did the Crime families deal with heroes who couldn’t be paid off, or even worse… Villains who didn’t pay up? Masks and Mobsters is a noir crime anthology written by Joshua Williamson with a rotating team of artists to showcase the standalone stories set in the fictional Golden City where the mob has started to fight back against those who would try to steal their piece of the pie.
