Actual Rating: 3.5 stars

A decent collection of stories about Black Mask! The first issues that introduced Black Mask were surprisingly the best ones of the lot. Have to say Roman Sionis hands down has the funniest origin story I have ever read, dude was dropped on his head as a baby by the doc who delivered him and then subsequently attacked by a raccoon at age 12! BEST VILLAIN STORY EVER XD

Things kind of pattered out as you reached closer to the end, the more recent issues didn't have the same wow factor as the first ones that introduced the character. I will say the inclusion of the interlude of Batman: Under the Red Hood was a stand-out choice, phenomenal writing with a truly hilarious and crazy iteration of Black Mask.
