SECRET LCSD BLACK MASK BOX SET It was recently revealed that Black Mask’s YOUNG TERRORISTS is not just a provocative, brain-dentingly awesome comic book, but it’s also stitching together a creator-owned shared universe featuring characters from an array of Black Mask books. When the story broke, it was described as “Young Terrorists is the Avengers of the Black Mask Universe”… which is probably better phrased than anything we could’ve come up with. This secret, limited edition box set brings together some of the core books you’ll want to know as Black Mask’s universe expands. The box set includes five books (three single-issue comics and two collected books) all with limited edition, exclusive, interlocking variant covers, as well as other exclusive, limited-edition items.
