This is the graphic novel containing issues #0 through #4 of the original Mask comic book series, in which Stanley Ipkiss, his girlfriend Katherine, and cop Lieutenant Kellaway each take turns being seduced by the mystical - and maniacal - powers of the mysterious mask. Arcudi and Mahnke managed to convey the gruesome hilarity of releasing stylized comic book violence into the real world with complete plausibility, no small feat for any format, let alone comic books themselves. It's a damn shame that The Mask was adapted into a film, as the PG-13 Jim Carrey vehicle was little more than a watered down family-friendly version of one of the most outrageously violent comic books of its time. It was a comic book adaptation twenty years too soon, and we can only hope that The Mask eventually gets a reboot now that violent comic book films are the norm. ( )
