This is the second collection of Mask comics. The madness and comedy from the first one continues. What's so great about this series is that it never gets old and repetitive. This is because the Mask constantly falls into new hands, which changes the events according to the new wearer's agenda. In the first collection, the Mask was first worn by Stanley Ipkiss, who used it for vengeance against personal "enemies", then it was briefly worn by his ex-girlfriend Kathy, who never really used it, and ...more

Like the previous volume, John Arcudi’s Mask Returns relies on silliness and violence. The combination is absurdity: blood and gore on the level of hilarity.

When Lieutenant Kellaway unsuccessful tried to defend himself against revenge seeking mobsters but trying to retrieve the mask from beneath the concrete in his basement floor, the green horror again ends up in the hands of an evil coward, Little Nunzio. Like Stanley, Little Nunzio uses the power to create terror and gain power in organized c

These comics are super easy to read. There is some gore, there are some jokes. I can whizz through them in half an hour. A nice way to break up an afternoon!
What I specifically enjoy is how quick the characters are to die. You never know if the Mask at the start will have the same wearer by the end of the book...

The sequels just don't have the same demented punch of the original, as the accountant's girlfriend gets a hold of the Mask and deals with the Mob as they try to take it from her. I particularly didn't like the behemoth bad guy who just can't be stopped, Walter. Some good comic violence, but, ultimately, you are better off with the first series.

More of the same as the previous really, but Mahnke's art has improved and really shines with the soft, clear palette of Chris Chalenor on colours. There's just the slightest hint at the origins of the mysterious mask itself, but a story that demands more attention than is given to it here.
If you liked the first, you'll like the second.
