The Mask returns in a new four-issue series from Dark Horse titled The Mask: I Pledge Allegiance to the Mask by writer Christopher Cantwell and artist Patric Reynolds.
“Years ago, a weird mask of unknown origin and limitless power was buried in the cement of an apartment building’s basement floor,” reads Dark Horse’s description of the new series. “Edge City and its residents have all but forgotten the mysterious green-faced killer known only as ‘Big Head.’ But now, decades later, the bizarre Tex Avery–style killings are happening all over again and are on a collision course with a bizarre political campaign where a homicidal maniac wants to ‘Make America Green Again’!”
Cantwell and Reynolds will be joined by colorist Lee Loughridge and letterer Nate Piekos.
Originally created in 1987 by Dark Horse founder Mike Richardson and Mark Badger, the Mask went on to be a popular comic book series but a much more popular film franchise with then-rising-star Jim Carrey. This is the first new The Mask material since 2015’s Itty Bitty Mask.
The Mask: I Pledge Allegiance to the Mask #1 (of 4) is due out October 16.
