Midtown Comics recently had the chance to interview Cullen Bunn (Deadpool, Sinestro, The Sixth Gun) on his work for the upcoming Dynamite Series, Masks II.

The Shadow. The Green Hornet and Kato. Black Terror. These are just a few masked vigilantes drawn into a mystery that spans the decades – a plot that threatens our society again and again. With the devastating power to kill thousands of people in a matter of seconds, the Red Death is a villain who may be impossible to stop. It will take more than a dozen masked heroes from three different time periods to stop this madwoman from bringing the world to its knees!

Read our interview with Cullen Bunn below!
