Dark Horse “Pledge Allegiance to the Mask” as Big Head returns this October
The Mask returns this fall in a brand new miniseries from Dark Horse, enduring Big Head will get into all sorts of anarchic shenanigans. While I’m sure most of us are fairly familiar with the Jim Carrey vehicle The Mask from 1994, the comics the film was based on are… slightly more violent and brutal than the movies slapstick proceedings would lead you to believe.
That looks to hold true with this four-issue miniseries, subtitled I Pledge Allegiance to the Mask, which sees Big Head make a tear across the United States to promote a skewed political message.
Mostly involving murder, I’m sure.
Check out the details below.
