David Mack's Kabuki, Merged threads: previews &
Dec 15 2004, 02:27 AM
I'm a big Steranko fan. I've loved his work since I was a little kid.
He's definitely a big influence on my work. Especially my early work.
Now, moreso in philosophy of storytelling and his drive to push the
Kabuki Circle of Blood was probably in some part, my own take on a character as government agent and espionage, from my childhood lens of how Steranko's work on Nick Fury and SHIELD inspired me as a kid.
Imagine how honored I was that he wrote the introduction to KABUKI: Circle of Blood.
And when he painting a Kabuki cover.
Besides loving his work, he is an amazing human being. He introduced
himself to me in 1995 saying his friends told him he should check out Kabuki. I gave him all the issues I had and he was highly encouraging and has always offerend his help to me.
I've been happy to have a friendship with him ever since. We have a
tradition of talking storytelling and philosphy over the phone at night.
He only calls well after midnight, and insists that I do the same.
He's a super guy.
On every level.

Glad to hear that.
I recommend it.
He, along with Frank Miller, are who I owe a lot of my early inspiration
in my formative comic work.
I happend to get a Christmas card from Steranko today!
And a reminder that Kabuki #3 ships next week. The 29th.
This issue is quite a contrast to the others.
I'm looking forward to any feedback on it.
