MASKast Assignment: US Comics Series 2 Issues 1-3


For a little change of pace, Jason and Wyatt will be reviewing comics on the next MASKast podcast! We will be diving into Series 2 of the US Comics published in 1987 by DC Comics. As we do with our episode reviews, we plan to go page-by-page through each issue and then discuss the story and even the ads.

We will be breaking up the 9 issue series in three parts so your assignment is to read Issues 1-3 and give us your thoughts on each story. Instead of doing a poll with a 1-5 ranking, we will be ranking in order or our favorites. So be sure to tell us which of the first three was your favorite, second favorite, and least favorite. As we continue to review issues, we'll carry over our rankings until we have ranked all nine issues.
