Kabuki #1 ship date, San Diego, & Kabuki trades...
July 03 2004,02:15

I spoke today with my Marvel contact for the new Kabuki issue. It's at the printer and all squared away.
Marvel tells me that the #1 issue will be in stores on Wednesday July 21.

That just happens to be the first day of San Diego Con. I will be at the San Diego con Wed 21 through Sunday. I will be there ALL FIVE DAYS of the show. So please feel welcome to pick up the new issue at your store on Wednesday and bring it to the con, and I will be happy to sign your Kabuki issues. I will sign as many as you bring with NO SIGNING LIMIT. If you buy my work, what ever you bring from your collection, or pick up at my table, I will be happy to sign. Even if it is your entire collection or multiple copies.
Just mention you are from this board and I will also be nice to you

I will also have original art there, a selection of 11x17 prints, Kabuki back issues, Hardcover collections and paperbacks and more.

If you are looking forward to the new Kabuki series but have not read any of the previous Kabuki trades, you can start right at this series. But I also hope you will pick up the trades to read in the couple weeks before the new series begins. I suggest starting with volume 1 KABUKI: Circle of Blood, or Volume 5 KABUKI: Metamorphosis. This new series begins right where Metamorphosis leaves off, and it will give you some extra depth and contrast for the new series.

Please post your respons to the Kabuki books when you get a chance to read them.
Thanks,
David


Kabuki #1 ship date, San Diego, & Kabuki trades...

Hi Bullwinkle,
We had a great time in Australia and in New Zealand as well.  Anh and I did both of those conventions in 2002 traveling with Mark Millar and Frank Quitely and we had a blast.
It was great teaching the Master Class at the University of Technology in Sidney.  And the con was wonderful.  So were the beaches:)  We did a lot of swimming on those trips.

I'm hoping to go back again when I have the time.  My girlfriend Anh went this year with Brian Bendis and Alisa Bendis to help alisa with the baby and so the girls could hang out and shop while Bendis was at teh signings and writing.  I wanted to go, but just had to stick to my deadline schedule.

I sign at San Diego every year.  You'll really enjoy it if you make it next year.
And you can always order online from Anh.  She sells all the Kabuki, trades, hardecovers, back issues, prints and art at DavidMack.net.
And you can e-mail her at

Hey GofMotion,
Glad you read volume #1 and intend to pick up the other volumes.
I'll definitley have them at SD.
Please stop by and introduce yourself.  I'll throw in some free stuff for you.

Dookula,
Thanks.  Glad you are picking up the new series.
It's going to be a wild ride.

Thanks Chico!
I'll post those answers to your questions in detail on this General forum when I get it together

I appreciate you all reading Kabuki.


Kabuki and Powers-- are you gonna get it?, One?  Both?  None?
July 08 2004,23:18

Yay!
Glad so many of you are going to pick up the new Kabuki series!
And glad to hear some of you are going to check out the earlier Kabuki trades.

My fave of the trades is KABUKI: Metamorphosis.  I'm glad some of you have seen my three Daredevil stories, but Kabuki is definitely a better example of my work.  With Meta probably being the best example of my work in comics so far.

But I'm hoping to out-do it with the new Kabuki series KABUKI: The Alchemy!

Glad you all are checking this out.  It will be a pretty long story arc.  No trade for at least 2 years.  So I hope you are on with this story and stick with it.  I promise a lot of surprises, twists, and explorations of the medium.  As well as life, love, man, God, and the nature of the universe.

And the original Kabuki Bendis are will be in the back of each issue

And it will be out in time for you to have it at San Diego.  If you are there, please stop by my booth and introduce yourself.
Best,
David

Hi Allison,
Good to hear from you.
It was great talking to you and Adam in Charlotte.
Totally looking forward to his Kabuki art!
And San Diego is going to be wonderful.
See you there.

Check out KABUKI: Circle of Blood and the other Kabuki trades & you'll see a striking contrast between the art styles.  Not to mention the writing styles, and structures.

July 10 2004,04:14

And there is a mis-spelling from my previous post.  It should say there is the original Brian Bendis Kabuki ART showcased in the back of each of the new Kabuki issues.

And here is that link to the pulse preview which shows the first five pages of Kabuki #1...

kabuki: the alchemy #1, what did you guys think!
July 27 2004,05:19

Hey friends,
Thanks for picking it up, and for the feedback!

Mnemo, I appreciate how you mentioned that each Kabuki volume has it's own unique style and pacing.  Each one builds upon the previous but also boldly contrasts the previous art and writng styles and pacing styles while evolving it.

This one will be doing that, but in its own way.  Part of the structure of it is that I wanted to begin it with a look that was a bit recognizable and accessable to new and longtime readers, and then strikingly contrast that with a new art look in the story as the character and changes and the story rounds certain corners.

And each issue will contrast the other in its pacing and structure as well.  This issue was Kabuki's internal POV as she externally gets from point A to point B.   I wanted to give new readers a sense of where she was coming from emotionally without re-capping actual events.  So I tried to give the Psycholigical sense of it through the  metaphors of her own thought process rather than spelling out previous details.

Whereas in issue #2 there is almost no internal monologue captions, but entirely external interaction with another character.

And each of the issues will take her (and you) in a new place with other characters and a different and varying look, pace, rythm and structure.
