The Japanese ghost is much different from its Western counterpart. With the exception of the occasional historical figure, Japanese ghosts are mainly female.

Kabuki in the new Marvel Previews...
04-01-05, 02:57 AM

Please order in advance

In the ICON section in case anyone just joined us.
I saw the new June Marvel Previews while in Golden apple in LA.

Do most readers do this? Pick up the Marvel previews and order from it?
Actual readers. Or do you just mention what books you want, and only the retailers look at the Marvel Previews?

I'm conducting a survey for Social Studies class.

Do most of you here have a pull list with your store, or do you just walk in and impulse buy stuff? Or both?

Anyway, that Kabuki issue is going to rock. So you should read it.
Thanks.

Oh, and I just found my next tattoo.

Glad you all are into this project.
It is going to rock.

I'm a huge Andy Lee fan.

Thanks for the great feedback about the Kabuki story some of you posted on my message board.
Now that I'm back, I'll make it a point to post responses on my board and also keep up on this one.

But thanks to all the new readers who just started reading Kabuki lately or from picking it up at one of the recent cons and giving such lovely feedback!


Re: Regarding Kabuki
04-01-05, 03:47 AM

Kabuki #4 will be out soon.

And for those just starting with the new series, #1-3 of Alchemy are still available through re-order. Including the Maleev cover which is still available thru re-order at cover price.

This is also true with #4 in case someone still wants to order the Adam Hughes cover.
The pencil sketch of it is included in the back of issue #4.

Also #4 shows a photo of the new PANDA stuffed animal (with stitches) from the SCARAB story.
The PANDA hits stores in April.

And I think some of you are in the letters collumn of #4. And some upcoming issues.


Re: Regarding Kabuki
04-01-05, 03:49 AM

Thanks, John!

In that case I have a funny story from the LA con that I should share.
It does not involve a hatchet this time. Thankfully.

I share it later when I get a minute.

Thanks, Aldo!

It was great to meet you!
I really appreciate it.

Please let me know what you think of the other Kabuki books you read.


Re: Regarding Kabuki
04-01-05, 03:56 AM

Also regarding #4...

There was a wonderful woman that I met at the Portland Comicon who had an incredible Kabuki Noh Dragon Tattoo. I mean super accurate to the comic.
I asked her if I could take photos of it, and she let me take several amazing shots of it.

I ended up collaging some of the photos of the tattoo on her back into some of the art of this issue.

She had given me her name and info, but I can't find it.

I'd like to give acknowledgment and thanks to her in the next issue since I included the photo of her beautiful tattoo. I'll include her name in the thankyou section of an upcoming issue and credit her if she wants.

So if anyone here from Portland knows who I am talking about, please pass this on to her. And please mention it to me. Thanks.

I think you are going to get a bick kick out of the art I am talking about. This issue has a lot of new approaches in a comic that I have NEVER seen in a comic before.

Not to mention that Powers reference I mentioned before

#4 is my official Powers crossover issue

I think that is a good reason to keep them.
It never occured to me that somone is trying to up their count. Who cares.

But if some troll comes in and starts an attack in the first post or two it pretty much draws the lines of what they are about.

Go to davidmack.net.
I'm pretty sure there is an entire section with scores of 11 x 17 prints to choose from for really low prices.

Also I think worldfamouscomics.com has a cool Kabuki site (besides the messageboard) and they also sell prints.
Both sites may have different print selections.

And also, I have them available in person at my signings.

But anyone can order them online from davidmack.net.

That is flattering.
But don't completely write of the hot ones.

Yes!!

Please give her my regards.

Ha Ha

I remember the launch of NohTV.com. Heady days indeed.
And I liked Bendis when it wasn't cool to like him too

He definitely has a sense of humor...

Remember what he said to the Wizard guys when he introduced me at the table?

And you had a good response to that too.


Re: Regarding Kabuki
04-01-05, 07:28 AM

Yay!
Look forward to seeing you again.
I'll give an extra free one for your mom.

It is going to be a while before the trade of Alchemy is out. I'm not even thinking about that yet.
LOTS more fun Alchemy issues to go.

You sure you can't read a friend's issues while you wait?

Gives your bowl a more thoughtful, brooding look, I think.

I was meaning to thank you for that.
The tinted light is lovely.
And thanks for the dancing and various other spectacles.

And thanks to you and your GF for reading.
Maybe see you at Dragon con again?

He rocks.

Tell him I say hi if you are at the con again.


This girl with the tattoo
04-05-05, 02:23 AM

So no one here knows who this girl is?
From the regarding Kabuki thread...

Also regarding #4...

Re: This girl with the tattoo
04-05-05, 04:18 AM

No the pic isn't there.
So you have to use your imagination.

I still have to figure that stuff out. I think I'll get a big pile of photos of people with Kabuki tattoos to send to David Thornton to put on davidmackguide.com. And he can post a link to it.

But I figured with such a big tat people in at least the Portland area should know about her. She must be known at the comic stores.

Anyway, read Kabuki.
