The machinations of the Red Death have scattered the masked heroes of three eras into the time stream. Now, wildly altered versions of the heroes have reunited for one last campaign to defeat the Red Death and save all of reality.
Though I've had mixed feelings about this Masks series overall, there are a lot of areas that I enjoy. It's basically a kind of classic Secret Wars style team-up with different time periods working together that are thrown to other periods of time while trying to figure it all out. It's a giant, sprawling, mishmash of stuff all around the central idea of stopping the Read Death organization. And that's fine because it works and has a lot of appeal to see the pulp characters of different eras interact with each other and themselves. Casallos definitely steals the show here with his designs and ability to hold it all together while also coming up with some very fun and silly new designs towards the end here as time bends more. But the core of the story doesn't challenge all that much and makes me wish it was a couple of issues shorter and tighter. Read Full Review
Masks 2 has most definitely been an intriguing tale so far, as despite the time travel elements creating both pros and cons, the former has massively outweighed the latter. This penultimate issue also gives us some amazing twists, as with things becoming even clearer to our characters, it should be interesting to see where this story goes as it enters its grand finale.

It's action packed and fun to watch all of the cool alternate versions of these classic characters. The plot is almost stream of consciousness, like Bunn is making it up as he goes, since time travel is involved, pretty much anything is possible.
