Write a cynical review of the next super group album, dropping hints along the way that the review was a fake. But, they misunderestimated the readers. Soon demand for the latest album by The Masked Marauders was reaching fever pitch.

To read about the entire adventure, from review to the album being cut-out, please see The Masked Marauders: The Whole Story. The links at the bottom are Readers Digest versions; these are the genuine articles, in chronological order.
