Masks and Mobsters #3 Review
Review Short Version:
I still love this series, the art and writing are fantastic, capturing the superheroes versus the Mob period piece thing perfectly, but I was a little surprised to see this issue essentially start a completely different arc. Which is not to say it isn’t good, or dealing with the same, topic – it is – I just didn’t expect the storyline shift so quickly. Still, an interesting issue that looks like it will lead interesting places.

Masks and Mobsters #3 Review

Masks and Mobsters #3 continues to look at how the Mob reacts to superheroes, this time dealing with Deadly Bones, and sending us down a new arc, although along the same theme. The writing and art are still fantastic, and the story is well told, but the shift in characters took me a little bit to get used to. However, by the end of the issue I had forgotten all about it and the final page moved the arc in a direction that I am interested to see where goes. The Deadly Bones is a very different sort of hero than what we have seen to this point however, when he is embarassed during a bust of supervillains, we get front row seats to watching how he reacts. My favorite thing in this series is reading the dialogue of the people recounting their run-ins with super heroes. Williamson nails the banter perfectly, and I can just feel it playing out in my head as if the person is responding to an interviewer on the radio or TV. It looks like we’ll see more about Deadly Bones and how he reacts to his embarrassment (poorly) at least in the next issue.
