The Question Quarterly

 QUEQ   (DC, 1990-1992)

DC

When Vic Sage dons his strange mask, attaching it by use of an adhesive gas, he becomes the faceless man known as the Question. Originally a Charlton character, he came to DC as part of their Crisis on Infinite Earths. Later, he starred in thirty-six issues of his own series, which concluded just as this quarterly title began.

The Question Quarterly may be the perfect format for this character, allowing DC the time and story length to explore his possibilities. The stories are set in a variety of locations—from the jungles of South America, where Sage had fled with his critically ill daughter—to Hub City, where the girl’s mother (and Sage’s former lover), Myra, is the one good politician in one of the worst cities on Earth. Strangely, these supporting characters and subplots are often so interesting that they steal the show from the title character.
