Batman and The Mask

  

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.

Dave sez,

Wow, very cool!
It's a shame that The Mask went from one of the biggest things with Jim Carrey to one of the WORST films of all time with Jamie Kennedy!

One of the best runs was The Mask Returns! Doug Mahnke's art AWESOME!

This is weird; I was actually rebagging my Mask comics yesterday and stopped to reread a few. I think the only thing I'm missing is "Toys In The Attic" and a half dozen or so random issues. Had you considered using any art from the "Joker/Mask" mini-series?

I checked out Joker/Mask, but the art was so stylized that is was tough to mesh.
