To be published by Gallery Books, Masked features a cover by Trevor Hairsine, artist on such titles as 2000AD, Captain America, Wisdom, Ultimate Galactus, Black Panther and many other comics.
"I think the new title -- and title design -- works quite well," says Lou.

Due for release in July, Masked looks to be another great collection from an editor who's a dab hand at assembling great anthologies (but never let him try and make you drink grass).
