Format: Paperback
Homicidal maniacs, bombs, ultra-violence and a seriously deranged plot. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the movie and is looking for a darker, edgier look at the world.

This graphic novel (or comic book) is beyond the best graphic novel I've ever read I can get to read the full story of The Mask (or Big Head as he is called in the comics) and this is all because of the film adaptation starring Jim Carrey. The book is more darker than the film which is a comedy mixed with violence in the motion picture. and for those who haven't read this book spoiler alert Stanley Ipkiss dies from Kathy wearing The Mask. This book is about as amazing as The Mask movie you just cant stop getting hooked on the stories about The Mask. Thank you Amazon

What can I say about this graphic novel other than it is an absolute classic.
If you have ever suffered the misfortune of seeing the film before reading this book then I urge you to give this character another chance.

The story centres around The Mask which is passed from character to character, eventually ending up in the hands of Lieutenant Kellaway
who intends to use it to clean up the criminal underbelly in the city, Ultimately The Mask begins to corrupt Kellaway and all who subsequently wear it.

This books sets itself up perfectly for the sequel The Mask Returns which amps up the mayhem and destruction to new levels.

If you were utterly disappointed with the film, buy a copy of this book. Make yourself a cup of tea, open the first page and let all those memories of
the movie adaptation slip from your memory.

The Mask Returns

Funny in a Sick Way 9 Feb. 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I picked up this gem a couple of years ago at a comic shop and I loved this graphic novel from page 1. I saw the movie when i was a little kid and i pciked up this book, but there is a complete difference between the Stanley Ipkiss in the movie and the one in the comic. In the movie, The Mask (Stanley Ipkiss) doesnt kill people but in the book he is a homicidal maniac, . Even though the comic is violent, there is something comical about. He acts like a cartoon character and he says some funny things. If you ever wondered what it would be like if a Warner Bros. cartoon character existed in our world than read this.

Great book! 28 May 2013
By David Testerman - Published on Amazon.com

Yes as you know, this was later made into the Jim Carrey classic 1994 and yes, the film was toned down from the book. However I felt the screenwriters still respected where the comic was coming from.
A Work of Modern Comic Genius 25 April 2014

Truly this is a work for the ages! A piece of art which succinctly summarizes the nineties in all of their glory with a wonderful throwback to classic cartoony comics. John Arcudi is a brilliant individual touched by the very gods themselves.

Classic story telling meets crazy violence and then after a romantic night together give birth to a Warner Brother's cartoon! Such a good book!
