Elementals (1984)
Created by writer and artist, Bill Willingham, the character Freemason appeared in three, perhaps four, issues of the comic book series Elementals, published by Comico.
There is some online confusion about the publishing dates and Freemason's first appearance. The first appearance of Freemason is in the pages of Elementals v.2 Issue 20, "Supernature Summit", Part four of the Gathering (October 1991). He, or at least his head, appears in Elementals Issue 26, "Bridge over the River Acheron" (1 April 1993) and as an easily-missed background character in a group of thirty-five flying figures on page 15. He does not appear to have died in the climactic battle .
Another two men later appear with the title and powers of Freemason in Elementals: Ghost of a Chance, issue 1 (1 December 1995) and issue 1 of Elementals: How The War Was Won (1 June 1996) There are online references to his death in one of these.
"Bill Willingham never finished the series and was replaced by another writer before the end. Comico's publisher Andrew Rev purchased the Elementals property from Willingham in the 1990s and the character Freemason has not been used in publication since that time." [1]
