Quote1 Do it? Dan, I'm not a Republic serial villain. Do you seriously think I'd explain my master-stroke if there remained the slightest chance of you affecting its outcome? I did it thirty-five minutes ago. Quote2

Synopsis for "After the Masquerade"

  • Synopsis not yet written.


  • The title of this issue is from Percy Bysshe Shelley's poem Ozymandias. A passage appears at the end of the issue: "My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!"


  • Joey derogatorily refers Aline's workplace "with a bunch of guppies." The term "guppie" is slang for "gay urban professional," an analogue to "yuppie."
  • The book Joey is tearing is Knots, a 1970 book of poetry by R. D. Laing.
  • Veidt's recalling of his first encounter with The Comedian and their ensuing fight in which the latter "mistaking (Veidt) for a criminal" is based on the older cliches of comic books in which heroes fight each other on mistaken pretenses.
  • Veidt's remark of not being a "Republic serial villain" is a reference to how villains in 1940's movie serials were infamous for explaining their schemes to the heroes, allowing the heroes to foil them.
