Big Head is Back!
The Mask Omnibus Vol.2 (2nd Edition) - Peter Gross,Rich Hedden,Сибин Майналовски,John Arcudi,Bob Fingerman,Dough Mahnke,Evan Dorkin,Goran Delic

After the first omnibus of The Mask, volume 2 is more of 'fillers' with some good stories, some not. As always, the formula of the stories aren't much different than the rest. Here's the low down of what's inside of volume 2:


The Hunt for Green October - Every mercenary in the world is looking for the green mask and now, Ray Tuttle, a poor pawn shop owner bought the green menace and wear it to wreck havoc in Sky City! With so much chaos, Lieutenant Kellaway will do any thing to stop Big-Head from destroying people's lives! (3.5 out of 5)


World Tour - The Mask has gone to another dimension... Dark Horse Universe style! When mentally unstable General Blaire wears the mask, he visits Steel Harbor, Arcadia and Golden City to make chaos looks like a walk in the park. All the heroes from DHCU will do anything to stop Big Head! (2.5 out of 5)


Southern Discomfort - The Mask is now in New Orleans! Voodoo and madness stumbles upon the south where Big Head (worn by Eric Martin) is looking for his missing sister. He will tear New Orleans apart to find her, even if the supernatural and alligators is in his way! (3 out of 5)


Night of the Return of the Living Ipkiss... Kinda - The return of Stanley Ipkiss, zombified and wearing the mask to seek revenge in this short story! (3 out of 5)


Toys in the Attic - Aldo Krasker is on the edge and looking for new ideas to create a new toyline of toys when he bought a mask that gives him the idea he needs... and more! Out for revenge when he was mocked and ridicule during his younger days, Big Head is fulfilling what he wants, which is revenge, in a way New York City will never be the same again! And Lieutenant Kellaway is going to stop (again) Big Head from destroying the city. (3 out of 5)


Various writers have wrote their version of The Mask and so far, I enjoyed Evan Dorkin's The Hunt for Green October the most. The rest felt like a repeated formula that doesn't serve any better than the original two. Overall - I love and enjoy reading The Mask and its one of those comics that Dark Horse had a title that truly defines DHC.

Human in trouble and Lucifer got involved
Lucifer, Vol. 8: The Wolf Beneath the Tree - Ryan Kelly,Ted Naifeh,Peter Gross,Mike Carey,P. Craig Russell

Hard to explain this. 

 

The wolf wants to end all humans by poisoning the tree of life. 

 

To stop that, Michael reluctantly work with Lucifer. Michael also has a daughter who wants to help.

 

Interesting but a bit bloody. Unnecessary so. 

 

When supernatural beings act humans, this is the story we got on how they could use and misuse their powers.

Lucifer has created another world and playing with it
Lucifer, Vol. 3: A Dalliance With the Damned - Ryan Kelly,Dean Ormston,Peter Gross,Mike Carey

One of the most imaginative story is for Lucifer to experiment with humans by creating another Eden and put two humans in it and asked them to worship no one.

 

Which started out great. Two heterosexual humans found pleasure and company with each other. While the woman is fine with this, the man was tempted by the talking snake that told him that desire is a bad thing. 

 

What's up with that? That's the Christian obsession with sex and contaminated it with guilt. Finally, the man suffered because he could not deal with his own internal conflict. 

 

Lucifer is not surprised but he would continue to experiment with this. 

Other story include the daughter of an angel and how she would like to meet Lucifer. 

Another one is about a group of demons imitating high society. 

Kind of fun to read. The graphic is good as well.

Lucifer is having a complicated adventure
Lucifer Vol. 2: Children and Monsters - 'Dean Ormston', 'Ryan Kelly', 'Peter Gross','Mike Carey'

 

A new image of Lucifer from the mind of Neil Gaiman. This is a continuation of the series Sandman. 

 

The story began when Lucifer is in the void with nothing except his wit. He got no weapon and has no cloth.

 

Then he found the Windowless castle that hold his wings. 

 

He wants it back.

 

In the world, Lux being the center of strange attention because of the gate to the void.

 

Then there are monster who wants death because she was cursed. 

 

The story is rich and the last one about the committee of Angels want to come down to LA and fight Lucifer.

 

Interesting. 

 

Angels are assholes. 

 

It is better to be logical and interact with humans, instead of treating them like toys. 

 

That what the Christian bible god did, playing with humans like toys. So careless.

 

The re imagination of Lucifer is fun.

 

5 stars read.

Reading progress update: I've read 113 out of 208 pages.
Lucifer Vol. 2: Children and Monsters - 'Dean Ormston', 'Ryan Kelly', 'Peter Gross','Mike Carey'

Lucifer is went to the void through the gate to find his wings. 

 

He faced some wicked gods and need to find the way to fight them with only his wit, as he is naked and has no weapon.

 

Of course he did it. 

 

The story is interesting and the illustration is fine. Lucky to find this at all on sale.
