Comic That Deserves a Soundtrack
I’m going with The Mask original graphic novel, the one from which the movie adaptation drew heavily. The Mask’s powers allow him to manifest cartoonish high jinks in reality. He is like a living Tex Avery character. Randy Edelman provided the soundtrack to the film version, but I’m wishing that Frank Zappa had composed an accompaniment for the comic. (The Mask came out in 1991, two years before Zappa’s untimely passing.)
Songs like The Adventures of Greggery Peccary (from Studio Tan), and A Ship Arriving Too Late to Save a Drowning Witch (from the album of the same name) prove to me that only Zappa can match the Mask’s demented energy. How awesome would it be to hear The Mask interpreted by Zappa!!
