Book Review - The Mask: School Spirits by Rick Geary

I never saw The Mask movie until nearly two decades after it came out, but I watched the cartoon every Saturday and thought it was great.

The Mask: School Spirits
 by Rick Geary is a story of The Mask disguised as a children's storybook appropriate for all ages (even adults will enjoy it)It is available in Hardcover and is one of three volumes.

The Good

The Art. Rick Geary isn't the best artist, but he perfectly captures the look and feel of The Mask and his zany adventures.

Fun This story isn't the most original, but it sure is a lot of fun.

Characters. The characters will remind you of people you've met and probably went to school with. While they aren't super original or fully fleshed out, they are developed enough that you get into the story

The Bad

Obvious. From the plot to the concept to the twists, this is not the cleverest nor the most original story I've read. Everything I saw coming from the beginning, and nothing surprised me.

What I Would Like to Have Seen

I wish the story had been more clever and The Mask had done more zany things that would have been fun to read about and look at.


The Mask: School Spirits by Rick Geary is a graphic novel disguised as a children's storybook from Dark Horse Comics. It's a lot of fun with solid art and a solid story that is appropriate for all ages. Even adults will find something to like in it. It's not the most original story, and the twist at the end is very obvious. The Mask also isn't as zany and one would like. But it's still an enjoyable read. I give this book 4 out of 5 eReaders.
