Glad you liked DD #15.
I think DD #16 was delayed a week or two but it may still be coming out in March. Not sure exactly what the new date is. The reason: While the painted pages I did for #16 have long been done, there were some opening pages that were going to be drawn by Joe. When they found out recently that he didn't have time, they asked me to do the first few pages. So I'm doing this right now. Story wise, these pages were written to BE in Joe's
style, so I'm making them look EXACTLY like joe. So the rest of the book
that I painted has the appropriate contrast.
As for the rest, I've turned in the finished issues of 16, 17, and 18.
I am in the process of Painting DD #19, but it is suspended while I draw these Quesada style pages.
As for covers-
I'm glad you like them so far. I have in fact confirmed that I will
be painting the covers of DD at least through DD #25. But I may continue after that as well.

Remember: BENDIS & MACK in Seatle NEXT WEAK!
We will be at the Seatle Comic Convention on March 11. This will be the first time either of us have done a con in Seatle.
We will be signing with no limit. I will have KABUKI back issues, original art, Kabuki prints, posters, t-shirts and more. Same for Brian with POWERS stuff.
Hope to see you there.

I have to say, You are going to crack up at these DD #16 pages where I am doing my "Quesada Imitation". I can't get over how surreal it looks.

Who runs and organizes the con? June is too soon for me to plan on coming
this year (i've got my June schedule slated already), but it has been a
while since I signed in Dallas. I'd like to hear about the con there.

Thanks for the info. Sorry, fall is all filled up too as far as conventions
go. I'll be doing Dragon Con and then the Mid-Ohio Con in November. I may
also be doing a NY con in Oct or Nov. And I have to leave plenty of time
between to finish some projects.

Did anyone see THE ART OF MARVLE COMICS hardcover that came out this week. Pretty cool. I bought one. I especially enjoyed the sections on Kent Williams and Bill Sienkewiez. ANd my Daredevil paintings were also included in the bood. Was cool to see them with out all the cover type and logos.

I also saw that my first cover on Swamp THing shipped this week. 13 i think.
It printed pretty good.
Hoping next one will print as good, as it is very 3d collage.

Scarab #7 will be shipping soon. THis may be my favorite Scarab issue yet. Let me know what you think.
Mar 19, 2001 5:52 AM
I imagine Marvel will do something like that eventually.
And I will be doing a book that collects all the Kabuki covers that I have ever done from every Kabuki related bookj.

It looks like I will be coming to conventions in Australia and New Zealand
next year. Hope to see you there.

Go to manwithoutfear.com
That is an extensive DD site that should cover everything for you.

Good. I'll draw a triangle for you!:}
I don't know about a paperback release. I didn't even know about the
HC release or any thing about it until Bendis told me it came out and had
my DD covers in it. But it is very cool.

Will do, Droideka:}
Mar 31, 2001 2:32 AM
Yeah Adrian, I will be bringing original art. I always bring some originals to every con.
Don't know if Anh will be there yet.

In case you don't know, DD #16-19 is a story painted by me and written
by my friend Bendis. I'm working on #19 now. I'm also doing DD covers up to at least #25. Just finished cover #21 yesterday.
Talked to Joe Quesada today. He still wants me to do an Echo series some time in the future.
I Recieved an advance copy of DD #16 from the printer today! Very surreal! The art printed great.
It should be in stores in a week or two. I can't wait to see how readers react to it.
