The Mask - Big Head's Back... by nickowolf The Mask - Big Head's Back... by nickowolf
I'm a HUGE fan of The Mask... no, no, not the movie version with Jim Carrey, which is still a good movie. I'm talking about the original bloody maniac comic version of The Mask. I think he's one of the greatest comic characters ever created... EVER!

The comic has also been one of the largest influences in my life. I read the original 5 part series when I was 9, and being an impressionable youth I sucked up all of blood, guts, and laughs and warped it into my own psyche.

So... that's how I came to be.

This was a doodle I did while I was on my break at work. I like how it turned out and made a cleaner vector version in Flash.

Oh, and if there's any other Mask fans out there, let me know... I don't know many other people who have read the comics. *weep*

I loved the Jim Carry film version, but I never knew untill recently that there was a comic book and I have been trying to find this comic ever since. From the research I did it is totaly different from the film and yet something I would totaly love to get into. I'd love to find this comic somewhere!
You perfectly captured his sadistic psycho-smile.
With those gigantic horse-teeth, small chin/nose, lack of ears and the blood-red yes.
I personally also love the comic. It's a bloody fun joyride, that also quite tragic seeing how the mask ruins the bearers lives.
I would love to see an animated movie based on the original 5-series comic, as it is a journey in the darkest, bloodiest, parts of comedy.

If Batman can have a reboot film like "The Dark Knight" then "Big-Head" should too. right down to retaining his African origins, the bloodshed he caused in the comics, and Walter!
A LITTLE SONG, A LITTLE DANCE, SOME AMMO DOWN YOUR PANTS! They should reboot the MASK and make it like the original books!
ok now im confused , i didn't even know there were comics till today, and it makes me think, were the comics based of the movie or was the movie based of the comics?
