A team-up set up by SWORDS OF SORROW's Gail Simone, featuring the writers that she hand-picked: G. Willow Wilson and Erica Schultz! When Kato's luxury getaway car, Black Beauty, takes on a mind of its own and goes on a rampage through the streets of New York, Masquerade is hot on its trail... but when the two clash, who will end up in the driver's seat? Strange forces are at work and unlikely heroes must come together to solve the mystery!

    Overall, there is a lot of fast paced action, clever resolutions and just a taste of a cliffhanger to get you to want to read moreof the Swords of Sorrow crossover. Read Full Review

    The "Swords of Sorrow: Masquerade & Kato"one shot has me the most excited I've been for this event. It's not a perfect issue but it does what it needs to do and is an enjoyable read. This is where I've decided to stick with this event and the next chapter of this crossover can't get here soon enough. Read Full Review

    This is not some open-conflict like Civil Wars, or Fear Itself, where the endgames of both sides are understood (if not known in detail).There are secrets here, plans hidden within plans, and that is what really makes this interesting. Read Full Review

    I am quietly enjoying Swords. This one shot does exactly what a tie in book should do. It introduces two of the many heroines and then redirects the story back to the main story. Fans of either character will pick up the book and for those who may have worried about the cost of buying a myriad of books, with diminishing quality can rest assured that Dynamite have managed to curb those fears both by producing a one shot rather than a mini series and of the work Wilson and Schultz have put in.

    Despite being a little predictable (we know they're going to get along and work together), Swords of Sorrow: Masquerade & Kato #1 is an exciting one-shot that wonderfully sets the stage for their collaboration going forward. Read Full Review
