The Justice Party tightens its grip on the Empire State, and the vigilantes and heroes are preparing to go on the offensive. The Shadow and the others have gathered enough evidence to prove that the public officials who have established the new fascist police state are merely the pawns of more sinister forces who lurk unseen. No one has heard from the Spider since he left for Albany to investigate the new governor, and he is feared dead, captured, or worse. And while Green Hornet, Black Terror, Miss Fury, and others join the Shadow in preparing to attack the hidden masters of the Justice Party, two fugitives take to the streets as Zorro and the Black Bat.

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Apr 3, 2013

    Masks continues to impress. We get a lot of progression storywise with this issue, so it will be interesting to see how Roberson uses the last three issues to tie a bow on it. If you've not been reading this one, you're doing yourself a great disservice 4.5/5 Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Apr 6, 2013

    It's an interesting issue visually, as well, as we see The Black Bat taking to the streets using his newly found abilities, and we finally get the full-fledged team-up of Batman's antecedents in a lovely night-time fight sequence. Most of the rest of the issue is dedicated to skulking and fighty-fighty, with a fascinating moment wherein the Green Hornet reveals that The Shadow gave him tips on mind-clouding, while The Shadow references Doc Savage and even implies that he'd like to have the big man's assistance in their current mission. (They're infiltrating the Empire State Building, through the 86th floor...) All in all, it's a middle chapter, but a middle chapter that doesn't leave you wanting, even with no less than THREE cliffhangers, not counting the whereabouts of the almost-certainly-not-dead Richard "Spider" Wentworth.
