Teenage skaterat Emmie runs a punk record shop in an abandoned strip mall during the CALEXIT military occupation. When Homeland Security turns the strip mall into a detention center, Emmie realizes she must fight.
"Black Mask is drop-kicking fascism with [Emmie-X], about a young woman fighting DHS internment camps through pirate radio." -Rolling Stone
"It takes place in the same universe as the other CALEXIT comics (there's even a specific reference to the young rebel Zora) but features all-new characters. When Emmie's makeshift record store gets seized by government agents who need more facilities to hold detained immigrants (not too different from real-life immigrants being detained at former Walmart stores), she pivots to pirate radio, broadcasting newly outlawed music instead of government-mandated right-wing talk radio. In doing so, she befriends a Homeland Security trooper with good taste in music -- but wonders if she can convince him to actually rebel against his fascist government masters." -Entertainment Weekly
