I liked Roman Sionis in Judd Winick's Under the Hood vol 1 and 2. Thats' actually the only comic i have with Roman Sionis Black Mask.

I haven't read them yet, but I believe he plays a large role in "War Games" and "War Crimes".

It's also the only GOOD Black Mask interpretation ever. Seriously, call out on Judd Winick's writing all you want, but he's the only person who ever made Black Mask an even half-way decent character.

I simply cannot understand people's obsession with him, he's a terrible character.

He's prominent in No Man Land (Vol.1? but I can't be sure) and as batpawn said his best days were his earliest stories back in Moenchs mid 80's run, and then when Moench him bought back with art by Kelley Jones in the mid 90's. It's an ongoing shame that neither of these two periods are collected.

in trades Under the Hood and Catwoman volumes is seriously it. nowadays he's a second rate Two-Face/Penguin. he was important in Catwoman

btw did you know Roman Sionis was dropped on his head when he was born? no kidding. dropped on his head. it really messed him up

I suppose you havent read Catwoman relentless then?

What Bruebaker did with Black Mask was beyond mouth dropping, he made him more then a gimmick villain and in my personal opinion he put him on the top of the list of Batman villains.

He's alot of fun to work with, I had a chance to put him in a small short film that Im hoping will be released soon.

Black Mask is not a good character, but I still enjoy his first arc by Moench in the 80s.

Black Mask is a very good character. He's had some great writing by the likes of Moench and Winnick.

I decided to make a series of articles recently about the best and most accessible stories out there featuring some characters. With Arkham Origins, I thought someone might want to get into Black Mask and I wrote an article on the best black mask stories. I hope it helps a bit.
