Masks and Mobsters
It continues to fascinate me how the “pulp heroes” of the 1930s and 1940s are making a huge comeback. Just check out the recent revamps coming out from Dark Horse and Dynamite Entertainment. One of my very favorites comes from Dark Horse and is called Captain Midnight. The final issue of the first year in the series is now available in local comics shops.
Monkeybrain Comics sent us a sneak peek of Artful Daggers #6 and Masks and Mobsters #10 that are available in digital format today.
