    PopMatters - Jay Mattson Feb 5, 2013

    The final pages of Masks #3 brings some insight to the Justice Party's intentions that raises a whole new set of questions for the series going forward because the Party's actions could have, up to now, been chalked up to pure financial gain. The end of Masks #3 confirms that this corruption is a lot more complicated than any of our heroes could have anticipated. The Justice Party is not something than can be punched, or tasered, or shot—this is an enemy that defies all previous conventions and is eating society from within, and there are still five issues left.

    Masks is a can't miss event. The best pulp heroes assemble to face a threat greater than themselves. Roberson crafts a great tale that stays true to the individual parts and Calero provides some vibrant work. If you aren't reading Masks, you're missing something special. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Daniel Alvarez Jan 26, 2013

    Overall, another great issue of MASKS. The story moves forward nicely and introduces a few new characters. There's plenty of cool character scenes too, from the Shadow's entrance with Miss Lane (Lois?) and Mr. Chalmers to Kato having words with Rothko. I'll be looking forward to the next installment.

    This was a great issue. It took me several attempts to read, but only because I was actually pretty upset that it wasn't Alex Ross's artwork between the covers. Once I gave it a chance, though, Calero's art did work for me in this issue. It suits the tone, and he seems to work well with the script given by Roberson. I rate this issue a little lower than maybe I should for the art switch, but it's still a great story. Calero is slated for issue #4 based on the “Next Issue” box so at least I have an expectation now. I will still continue to get this book, unlike some other miniseries I have dropped for such a thing because the quality has not gone down at all, it's simply changed. Next issue, my expectation is set and I am looking forward to seeing what Roberson and Calero have in store. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - JohnP Jan 26, 2013

    Masks #3 is a solid chapter in the continuing story. It may be relatively light on action and the plot is somewhat transitional in terms of the overall story, but those are the only reasons why it may not make as strong an impression as the first two issues. The cast is all here now, so from here on out things are bound to really heat up. Don't forget, this is a team of vigilantes with no qualms about killing bad guys. This story won't end with someone being locked up in an Asylum, there's gonna be hell to pay. If you aren't tuning in to Masks every month to see what happens, you're missing out. Read Full Review

    Masks has a story to tell, but right now, it's still an imperfect one. Read Full Review
