We may never find Akemi since she has been trained to blend in. These skills are amplified by the fact that she is a hermaphrodite. Some of the best agents are. It raises their cover potential by 200%.

I like to say vocabulary chef. Or sometimes I just say I am in the word business.

Re: Who all is going to Wizard World LA?
Mar 14, 2004 4:19 am

I'll be there the entire show signing at the Beckett booth who so kindly is hosting me at their guest. One side of the Beckett booth will be the Kabuki booth! Anh Tran and Andy Lee will be there with me.
And I'm sure Bendis will be hiding out there between his official hoohas.

Stop by and introduce yourself. Check out Kabuki if you haven't. Mention that you are from the board and I'll special expression. Or something.

Alright! Glad you are reading it. Let me know what you think when you finish the books.

Read Skin Deep and Metamorphosis. They are sort of part of the same bigger story and Meta is my fave.

And the new series starts right where Meta leaves off.

Looking forward to hearing feedback from all the new Kabuki readers!

Nice to meet you in Orlando, Rangerchic. Now that you read Kabuki, you will know what you are talking about when your recomend it in your book store

That was my fave MegaCon yet. Doing Wizard WOrld LA next weekend!

I've always done Kabuki on bi-monthly basis. New Kabuki every two months.
It just takes me an entire two months to do each issue.

Do readers here find the bi-monthly schedule problematic? Let me know what you think.

I could probably do the first couple issues monthly, but then it would catch up to me and it would end up being every two months eventually, because that is just how much time each issue takes me to do the whole she-bang (write, draw, paint, letter, design, letters collumn, production, etc).

Always open to hear view points and personal reader perspectives on anything about my books.

I will be there all day every day. Signing at the BECKETT booth with Anh Tran and Andy Lee.

See you there.

No, I insist on being there all day every day. Even when the convention is over. Or at least until I have to empty my colostomy bag.

Just kidding. I will only be there during the hours of the convention!

But it does remind me of a funny story!
Years ago, when I was doing the guerilla style of low expense comic conventions...

I couldn't afford hotels, would often end up sleeping at hotels, or homes of people who invited me to. Often at a different place each nite of the con. Often with people we just met at the con. And one time, Andy Lee and I actually slept UNDERNEATH our con tables.
We were woke up in the morning by the noise of people talking and shuffling by our tables. Then we promptly got our from under the table, stood up at our table and started the day by welcoming our readers to the booth.and signing their comics.

Re: who is Anh Tran ???
Mar 15, 2004 6:59 am

Hey, your right. I do look like
Oemings drawings!

Bendis has been telling this for a while. He did draw me as Detective David Mack in Powers. And I think he did a pretty good job!

Anh Tran is indeed my beautiful, wonderful, brilliant and talented girlfriend. And she is indeed way hot. She looks good in the photo but it doesn't even do her justice. Did I say how hot she is?

And smart. When i met her she was a chemical engineer. But I could tell she wanted to do more creative stuff and was a natural artist even though she was doing so much math. So I got her out of math and into comics by saying "Drop them zeros and get with some heroes!".

She makes the amazing line of Tranimals. These include her Bunnyz, Ninjas, cats, and robots. Check out some recent posts on my board at worldfamouscomics.com to see some photos people have posted of her Tranimals.

And she is doing her own Tranimals comics to be published by Top Shelf. She loves the Top Shelf comics.

And she has been in a ton of comics! Besides being my model for Kabuki, Oeming based the girl in Bastard Samurai on her. Bendis based TRAN in Daredevil Ninja on her, and in the new Terminator comic series, Captain Anh Tran is based on her.

And she wrote the Peter Parker chemistry class scenes for Bendis in the Ultimate SpiderMan comic and the Spidermans show on MTV. That Chemical Engineering major sure comes in handy at times. She's like McGyver that way.

And she is way hot. Did I say that?
She is so lovely that even girls think she is unresistable.

She is bi-lingual. Which is a big help for me. And besides that, she also speaks two languages fluently. As well as pretty good Spanish, and we are currently in French class together. (I'm speaking to you absolutely literally. But I am also speaking to you metaphorically).

And she does my site davidmack.net.
She is my art dealer, and takes care of all the computor stuff and editorial and art direction stuff, and the Kabuki international translations and a zillion other things.

And she is way funny. She says the craziest things in public at the most inappropriate times. Which always either makes me wince, or laugh uncontrollably.

Check out those Tranimals!

She just had a gallery show with them in Florida, at Toy Fare in NY, and at a new gallery show in New York in April.
A store in NY sells them, and the GIANT ROBOT store in LA and San Francisco, and the Beguiling book store in Toronto.

Your fan,
David Mack
