I guess thatís what books do. Take you places. Inside and out. Move you. Inside. And out. You are at a different place after you read the book than you were before you read it. In many ways you are a different person as well. - The Alchemy #3

Re: Just finished reading the DaVinci Code...

Did you know there's a code on the dust jacket? I don't remember what it said, but I remember being very proud of myself when I discovered that. Certain letters are darker, and when read in order they spell something. It was about a widow's son, something like that.

Based on what you said, the widow's son is part of a Masonic code.

Yeah, check out the JD Kabuki stuff on his site
Thanks, JD

The Bots were what she started making. From there she started making the other Tranimals. But she may not have ever had the Bots at shows before.

I'll let her give you the scoop at Chicago.

And she has Tranimals shirts there, and some of her drawn and painted stuff.

I'll be there too, with all the Kabuki anyone can handle.

Hey Dusto,
Thanks for deciding to check out Kabuki.

And thanks a bunch to all of you who recomended it!!!

You can see from the site that there are 6 volumes so far. The site has descriptions of each.

My favorite is KABUKI: Metamorphosis. Probably my best or most evolved completed work in comics so far. Though I'm trying to top it with the current story at ICON.

But the first volume, KABUKI: Circle of Blood is a very popular one too.

Please post on the board your feedback when you get a chance to read it.

Yes, it's a Masonic code.
Watch the Man Who Would Be King (the John Huston film based on Kiplings's book) for a cool movie that is structured on many Masonic iconography. They even say a variation of that in the film when one Mason is letting the other know he is a Mason so he will help a brother out.

For those of you who like the subject matter of this stuff, for just history and info, instead of plot, check out the book, "The Second Mesaiah".

And also The Rasputin File for more Eastern European history and mysticism. These books aren't meant to be entertaining thrillers. Just for data aquisition.

Re: anyone know how much Mack charges for an original page
Aug 11, 2004 11:23 pm


Yeah, the b/ws start at $100 and range up. The painted pages start at $500 and range up. The covers are mostly the ones in the 2K range. Though I have some Alias covers at $1500. Some less some more.

It was very cool.

Tell the Beguiling that I say hello. It is an awesome shop.

Thanks for picking up the new one. It's going to be a fun (and woman loved story :). but getting Circle of Blood like you mentioned is really going to give you a solid background for the story and characters.

Of the 6volumes out so far, I think the 3 most importan ones are Circle of Blood, Skin Deep, and Metamorphosis.

If you have those 3 you will get every single reference and contrast that the new series is building from.
You can still read it without these, but these 3 are really the essence of the Kabuki books. And favorite comic stories among women everywhere!

Let me know what you think.

Last minute reminder to visit me at Chicago...
Aug 12, 2004 3:35 am

I will be there in artist alley. I'll be right next to Andy Lee and Anh Tran. You can't miss us. He is the guy with all the large Chinese style brush paintings hanging up around us, and Anh has all the Tranimal stuffed animals.

I think one of the Table #s is something like 9243 but not positive.
Look for the Chinese guy (Andy Lee) with the Salvador Dali mustache and paint all over him doing really big Chinese Spiderman drawings with a large goat hair brush.

Bring your new issue of Kabuki Alchemcy and I'll sign it and sign all my other work that you bring or pick up at the table.

I will also have the ICON KABUKI #1 Alchemy at my table. Even the MALEEV COVER. So if you missed it, come buy and pick it up from me and get it signed.

Will also have all kinds of original art for sale. And a huge portfolio of 11x17 prints for you to choos from. The prints are $10 each or 2 for $15. You can't beat that. And all your fave Kabuki, Daredevil and Alias covers are there (if you get there soon enough)

And I'll have all the Kabuki collections there. Paperbacks and hardcovers.
And back isssues. Including some with BENDIS ART!

Kabuki T-shirts, action figures, masks, busts and lots more.

Please stop by and let me know who you are from this board and I might give you something free as well

I'm not really the arm wrestle at the table kind of guy. But I could flex for you or sign a book.

We'll be there noon-ish, and you and Andy will be the first two I visit. I want hugs STAT!
