Obscurity of DC Presents: Obscure Book Club, Week 102 (March 17-March 23) --- COSSACK THE DARK RIDER!

Why hello there, @ObscurityofDCClub and other members of the DC Community! Welcome to Week 102 of Obscurity of DC’s Obscure Book Club! This week will be a mini, and we’ll be focusing on…


Number of Issues: 2

Description from dc.fandom.com: Cossack, best known for his codename of Dark Rider, was a former agent of the KGB who went rogue in his quest to eliminate the United States of America as a threat to the Soviet Union.

Now that that’s over with, here are some discussion questions:

  1. Throughout the issues, we see Cossack in a few different outfits. Which of these is your favorite, and why?
  2. In issue 393, Cossack gives a monologue that addresses the motivations behind his crimes in great detail. While he is an undeniably vile person, do you understand/agree with the ideals he discusses? Explain.
  3. Despite him never wearing a mask, we only see Cossack’s eyes in two panels in the entire story. Why do you think this is? What, if anything, does it symbolize? Explain.

Do you have an interest in exploring the unknown? Do you like discussing comics? Do you like pineapple on pizza? If so, The Obscurity of DC Club is the club for you! Join HERE if you’re interested!
