I did not know much about The Mask as a comic book series other than the basic concept and the fact that I liked the John Arcudi artwork. So when the movie version of the comic came out, I went in with an open mind. I thought it was a perfect vehicle for Jim Carrey and it is still one of my favorite performances of his. I was hoping to see a sequel, but unfortunately the studio went the cheap route and cut the budget and star power form it. The results were forgettable, and it's too bad. This was a property that at one point had a successful comic, movie and cartoon series running, and I hope to see new material from it in the future.
