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.

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.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The original story of how Stanly got the mask! Excellent! 9 Jun. 2015
By TheBingDaddy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An excellent collection of the original comics for the Mask before he was called the Mask. Back when he was called Big Head. THough I would like to mention that this is violent... very violent so younger comic readers should stray away.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love the 1994 movie ''The Mask" starring Jim Carrey 5 Feb. 2016
By Darius Lee Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love the 1994 movie ''The Mask" starring Jim Carrey. The sequel "Son of the Mask'' starring Jamie Kennedy wasn't all that bad either. Once I read this original comic book that was by Dark Horse Comics I noticed some changes between this comic and both the movies. Unlike the movies The Mask was referred to as "Big Head", rather than "The Mask", Stanley Ipkiss, who in the movie was played by the comical & funny Jim Carrey was more geeky in the comic than the movie and has a girlfriend named Kathy whom kills him later in the comic who also briefly wears the mask. Lt. Kellaway later wears the mask as well while in the movie he never did wear the mask at all. Unlike the movies, the mask was a superhero in the movies depending on the wearer's personality, the mask would only as dangerous as the mask's wearer. In the comics, whether you are good or bad, the mask would become an antihero, insane, and extremely dangerous. I really enjoy this comic book, I like Stanley Ipkiss better in the movie than in the comics. Also The Mask is rated PG-13 & Son of the Mask is rated PG, The Mask Dark Horse comics would probably be rated R. The Mask I would give a 8/10, Son of the Mask I would give 6/10, and The Mask Dark Horse Comic I would give 5.5/10. Good comic book adaptation ! I would recommend letting your children watch The Mask & Son of the Mask when they are in their 13 years & up , and The Mask Dark Horse comic when they are 17 years & up. definitely suggested for MATURE READERS ONLY !
5.0 out of 5 stars A Work of Modern Comic Genius 25 April 2014
By irene roach,irene roach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! 28 May 2013
By David Testerman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.
