Good evening peeps, after a bit of a miscalculation on my part, regarding the re-imagining of my character “Crimson Masque” which I had originally based on the Crimson Avenger, but it was brought to my attention that while a golden age hero he was not a Public Domain Hero. With some help of some great folks in the Public Domain Heroes group, I now have a new backstory on the actual Crimson Mask who appeared in Detective Novels Magazine in the 40’s. So let’s try it again! Here you will see the original Crimson Mask in his 2nd appearance in Detective Novels Magazine. And my more modern day version of Crimson Masque. Hope you like it. I have also included the original Frank Miller’sh sketch I did in 2007.
• Crimson Mask (1940-44): The Crimson Mask is really pharmacist, master of disguise, and amateur detective Robert Clarke. His father, a cop, was slain in the line of duty. While studying to be a pharmacist, he also studies other topics that helped him as a detective, because this is what future pharmacists do. He lasted about a dozen or so stories in Detective Novels magazine.
I’m a big fan of Kelley Jones Batman art , so here is a tribute piece I just finished. Based on his Azrael interior art from Issue 500
