Comics are a subversive medium capable of great communication and cultural influence. The format affords an individual to voice a singular vision on an international scale under the radar of big business interest and federal regulation.

Re: MACK! in SiP...
Oct 16, 2004 1:10 am

Originally I did that in color for the SIP card set. Must have been 97.

Did you see the Kabuki and Sip art Terry Moore did? It's included in the Masks of the Noh trade with his introduction.

I seem to remember that "Oscar" bagels is the brand from the sip story that she eats.

Glad to see you are back on the board

I do tend to do a search later in the night when I finish my work or every so often. but sometimes I just stop by for a sec to see the news, so keeping it on the first page can be helpful
Just sayin, bump all you want

Glad you've read the full Kabuki stories

The Scarab story was a fun experiement in point of view.

Re: David Mack's Daredevil Hardcover
Oct 17, 2004 7:08 am

What I said was that my contact at Marvel who does the Marvel trades hardcovers, Jeff Youngquist, had told me that it was not on track for the previous scheduled release.

That they were deciding if they should do it as a volume in the DD hardcover series, or if they should do it as a Daredevil VISIONARIES hardcover.

Someone else had told me that Amazon had a NEW and current listing of it, so I thought that meant they had an advance listing of the new offer of it.

I'm sure I'll here news about it soon as to what format the hardcover will be released in.

I'm sure they can't NOT do it. It includes Bendis' first ever DD story he ever wrote (which is also the first Marvel story he ever wrote).

And I know a lot of readers held off on the Echo trade cause they are waiting for the hardcover.

I'll update when I hear more.

or check as he has new updates on things like this EVERY work day.

Bookmark it

Thanks for looking forward to it guys!

Send some e-mails to Marvel to let them know you'd like it sooner rather than later.

I'm sending some new photos to
Oct 17, 2004 7:28 am

tTo David Thornton... for him to post on his site and to post a link on this board.

The photos were taken because Clayburn Moore is doing a brand new statue of Kabuki to be released next year.
A much larger statue than the first Kabuki statue from 98.

There will be some photos of Clay's initial armiture scultping that he constructed with update photos from time to time on the site to show the process of his sculpture.

To help Clay out, I took some photos of Anh in the pose that we were discussing and that his armiture showed.
So Clay can use the photos of Anh as reference of how I would like the figure and stance and presence of the statue.

In the past, I sent Clay sketches for this. But I felt like the photos of a real figure from all angles would be a much more helpful jumping off point for him.

Anh is wearing the Kabuki style boots, and has a sickle in each hand. Which helps with the realism from Clay's pov. Especially so he can see how the muscles move in the figure while holding the sickles, etc.
And Amazon Anh captures the form of the sculpture fantasticly. All 5 ft 9 inches of her.

So the photos also show great shots of the ACTUAL KABUKI SICKLE that will be available next year. From all angles in her hands. In case you want to see what that looks like too.

The other sickle she has is from the farm that my mother grew up on in PA.

And Anh took some photos of me demonstrating to her the stance that the statue was to have. So there are some photos of me showing Anh the pose I'm looking for as well.

And it's all in my studion, so you can catch some glimpses of what that looks like if you are interested.

And I think one of my cats is in frame in one of the photos.

SO this should be on the website asap, and I'm sure he will post a link to them on this board asap.

David Thornton,
You should have all of my e-mails with all of these photos by now.
Please let me know if you have recieved them just fine.

I have some other photos I'll be sending you for the site in the future.

All the various photos of people with Kabuki tattoos. Some really good ones of these.

Other reference photos of Anh that I've been using in the current ALCHEMY series.

And lots of other stuff!

But all these e-mails just happened today between Clayburn Moore and I and it wasn't difficult to forward them to you.
And they are 100% new and current

What is Flaxen? All I know is it is a Bendis book and everyone hates it and he wrote it 'cause he was "starving to death". Anything else I need to know?
Bendis didn't write it, but he penciled it and I inked it in 94 or 95.

It is based on the life of a Playboy Playmate named Susie Owens.
Who turns into a super hero
A lovely lady.

Actually, I think a lot of people like it
And damn fine pencilling work by Brian

It was a lot of fun

But a very hard to find book from Bendis' early pencilling carreer.
A rare artifact from our pencilier/inker team in 93-94.

But one I have fondness for

Ah, to be 22 years old, working with Bendis, and dating a Playmate.
It was a good year

I can't help but smile when I talk about that book.



Re: Comic Review on The Screen Savers POWERS & KABUKI
Oct 19, 2004 3:00 am

Thanks for this!

What did they say about Kabuki?
Did they show the comic or any of the art? If so, which issue or trade?

Is this a TV show?
Please give me more info on it, and I'll try to find it. Do they do re-runs?

Well, yeah. What he said!

Here's a link to the show notes, not too much info there though.

They said some really nice stuff. Mostly commenting on the story and the characters, which was cool. They were talking about The Alchemy #1, specifically and they showed the cover (Mack's) and a couple interior pages.

It was a really nice surprise.

It replays tomorrow at noon (ET).

Thanks guys!

I'll check it out!
