Felicia Dance is hiding in plain sight. The provocative social media star and shock TV sensation has one of the most recognizable faces in the world-so she can't capture and kill the butchers who murdered her little brother and experimented on Felicia like a lab rat when she was a child. Not unless she looks like someone else. The face of justice is reshaped forever in Maskerade-an exciting new vigilante comic series from writers Kevin Smith and Andy McElfresh and artist John Sprengelmeyer, marking the dynamic debut of Smith's Secret Stash Press imprint with his very own vigilante!

    Sprengelmeyer offers some wonderfully detailed art throughout the issue. The tone and style of the art have a classic feel and I enjoyed how the art matches the tone of the story.  Read Full Review

    Maskerade #1 is a great beginning to the series and to Kevin Smiths Secret Stash Press line of books. Its got some great humor in places but also delivers some great action, a fascinating new anti-hero. Even though its a revenge tale, which has been done so many times in the past, the overall feel of the book is darkly funny, and the character is unique enough to keep things interesting. Im looking forward to the next issue! Read Full Review

    With Maskerade #1, color me intrigued. It's a crime drama with a touch of sci-fi, plenty of mystery, and a visual style that is pleasing and unique. Maskerade has a slick style that promises to unlock the underbelly of a vicious underworld. Read Full Review

    The first issue of Maskerade feels like someone "putting on a new face. Similar to touch up in the mirror, issue # 1 feels a bit like getting ready for the show. But if the series star continues getting all up in people's faces while putting her ass on the line , 'Bye, Felicia' and Maskerade can guarantee lots of views. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Sep 14, 2022

    Maskerade #1 marks Kevin Smith's return to comics, featuring a new superhero along with the geek guru's trademark storytelling tricks. With his recent dabbles in film and television, it was only a matter of time before Smith returned to comics, and with the help of McElfresh and Sprenglemeyer, he's come up with a neat premise.

    The concept is pretty solida vigilante in a crime-riddled town with a nifty face-changing gimmickand the writing flows so smoothly that it could've been lifted from one of Smith's movies. Read Full Review
