I really appreciate the positive feedback.
I'm glad that you have enjoyed the Kabuki that you have read so far.
Let me know what you think if you get a chance to read the other books.
In a market dominated by gratuitious silicone breasts and
violence, Kabuki is intelligent, compelling... and sexy. She's sexy because
she isn't spread across the page like a playboy pinup, but an incredibly
beautiful person who could live and breathe and *exist*...
She's sexy simply because I want to project the things Kabuki projects.
If she was real, I would admire her.
Kabuki has the proper, subtle mix of power and vulnerability that
makes anyone alluring, a balance of independence and need. (Which is also
the reason I like David Bowie and Jonathan Rhys Meyers so much....)
She's feminine and very human. And Akemi is fascinating.
Having been introduced to your work through a Scarab poster, and reading the color arc, I'm not as familiar with the other Noh agents but
I've the distinct impression that they're each, in their own ways, as complex
and real as Kabuki.
It's nice to pick up a comic and learn something reading it, as well
as be entertained.
It's nice to pick up a comic that's written by a man who understands
women... and human beings as a whole.
It's nice to read comics that are visual literature.
Thank you for enriching the world of art and storytelling. I hope
that one day I can create as skillfully as you. Until then (and always)
you have both my respect and appreciation.

David, I was wondering if you had any thoughts on how the
process of finding new writers, and unknown writers getting their work
seen, can be improved. If a body was set up to help discover new talent,
would you consider making a small contribution to help fund it. I mean
no disrespect but your artistic skills have helped alot in getting you
Yeah, I pretty much took it into my own hands. To publish my writing, I
just broke down and decided I'd figure out how to draw it as well, and
then I put it into little ashcan versions that I would sell at conventions.
THis is pretty much the same thing that Brian Bendis did.
Brian was looking for writing work, but not for work as an artist.
But he drew his books anyway in order to get the story across and give
his writing a method of presentation.
I sent a copy of Brian's TORSO book (written and drawn by him) to Joe QUesada to introduce Joe to Brians work.
Getting something in a presentation form worked very well for each
Of course if you don't want to draw it, having another artist draw a
project and them show it at conventions works well too.

Just posted this on the NEXTPLANETOVER board:

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.
