I feel like Iím seeing the world for the first time. Everything is beautiful all at once. From so many angles. Suddenly I understand Cubism.

FRI, 12/7/01, 4:21 a.m. - In Response To: Re: KABUKI ART + GOODIES ON EBAY  :) (Troy)

hey, Exactly what is the minimum bid on the original art work? I've always wanted to grab some cheap, especially Rick's stuff as I've seen less, and with Christmas here it might be my chance!! (That is if you don't mind taking the mystery out of it!!) if nothing else how much does his work cost otherwise?
Hi Troy,

The Scarab art usually starts at $100 and ranges upward depending on what particular page. If there is a specific page that you are interested in, let us know, and we can tell you if it is still available and what the price of it is. Mention some alternate choices in case some are already sold.


Re: question for the boards
FRI, 12/7/01, 4:27 a.m. - In Response To: question for the boards (dianna)

Hi Dianna,

Welcome to the message board, and thanks for reading my books. I will continue to do more Kabuki stories. The Scarab story (from KABUKI AGENTS 1-8) is the most recent story. It comes right after the Kabuki 1-9 story. I will continue to tell stories from the other characters POV like we did for Scarab. But of course I will also continue to personally write and draw future Kabuki stories for a long time. Or at least as long as people will continue to read them.


hello everyone! i'm actually quite new to this but i've been a huge fan of kabuki/david mack for awhile now and it now seems that kabuki has gained a lot more in popularity which i think is great but anyhoo to the question:(i've been outta the loop for a bit but...) is david mack still doing kabuki issues? i think the last issue i got was #9 and i didn't know if he was still continuing with them and i don't mean the agents ones either cos i've seen those and have a few issues. unless of course the agents ones are a continuation of kabuki but diff name??? Please say it ain't so cos i miss Kabuki!!!! the art is stunning and the story line...sigh - sorry for the long winded-ness of this post but any help is appreciated! thanx in advance! ^_^

Re: Hey Mack
FRI, 12/7/01, 4:37 a.m. - In Response To: Hey Mack (Troy)

Hi Troy,

Please give Doug at Comic Book World my regards. The Comic Book World stores in Florence and Cinci are great too. I hope you do get a chance to check them out. And say hello to Paul at the Florence shop.

Sorry, but my girlfriend has a policy of not having people crash. But we do still have a couple of the Artist Proof Scarab Busts. They were limited to only 200 made, and the few that I have are very low #s. I don't remember the exact price that they retailed for. I think it was around a hundred bucks. Let me know if you want one directly from us. I can sign it for you if you like.

I mentioned the details for the original Scarab art on your other post below.



Re: Angouleme 02
FRI, 12/7/01, 8:54 p.m. - In Response To: Angouleme 02 (titi-bolt (Foemerly french tbolt))
Hello Mr Mack!

In a precedent post you said you may come to Angouleme in next January..Have you made a final idea about it?

Respectfully and friendly


Marvel France was kind enough to invite me. I think we will go, but I'm still checking on a couple things first. I'll post on the board when it is official.



Kabuki Christmas Special!!!
SUN, 12/9/01, 11:00 p.m. - In Response To: Christmas Speical? (Sleepy Introvert Ninja)
Seeing that the holidays are kicking in, is there any chance of another Christmas special on products ordered directly from Mr. Mack?
Sure, why not!

A clear case of "You ask for it, you got it". This is a special offer exclusively for all the readers on the message board.

OK, Here's the deal: From now until the end of the year, you can order any of the Kabuki Hardcovers & paperbacks directly from the Kabuki Checklist (listed in the back of each Kabuki issue and on NohTV.com) and there will be NO CHARGE for postage, and I will sign everything you order (if you remind me).

You can order as many Kabuki books (or items: action figures, busts, statues, etc.) as you want, collections and single issues, (but the order must include at least one hardcover or paperback collection, other wise we will be losing lots of money on the postage that we pay, especially on international orders).

This is an opportunity to buy SIGNED books as GIFTS for other people, and an opportunity to buy up any single issues or sculptures you are missing without paying all the extra postage costs involved. You can complete your collections at cover price, buy gifts FOR OTHERS, and get EVERYTHING SIGNED.

Just remember to mention in your order that this is part of the Christmas or Holiday offer to this message board, and let me know if you want me to sign the books for you.

Happy Holidays!

David & Anh

Re: more questions...
SUN, 12/9/01, 11:24 p.m. - In Response To: more questions... (dianna)

Hi Dianna,

Thanks for the kind words.

I would like to do a signing in the New England some time. I don't hear of many conventions there. If I make any plans to sign there, I will definitely post it on this board.

In terms of your concerns in Talent/Major that you mentioned:

I would suggest to you to pursue the major and the carreer that you most enjoy. Choose the one that is most personally rewarding to you. Choose what you ENJOY doing as an activity or passion, rather than what you think offers security or payment as a carreer.

When you look at it this way, it makes things quite simple.

Once you have realized what it is in life that you most enjoy doing, just make a conscious effort to persevere at fulfilling your potential at it. Do it the best that you can and constantly strive to improve and evolve. Make a decision that you will learn from each effort and use that knowledge to make your next effort better than the last.

If you enjoy something enough, you will do it constantly and you will have an internal motivation to learn about it and improve at it.

This is what has worked for me.
From my own personal experience, I don't know much about talent. But I put a lot of EFFORT into realizing my passions.

I suggest to you that DISCIPLINE, PERSERVERENCE, PRACTICE, DETERMINATION, PROBLEM SOLVING, and a drive to learn and improve, is all that is needed to fulfill your ambitions.

Some people are born with a skill (talent), and others have to work hard (and work SMART) to develope that skill. The working hard/working smart part is what has worked for me. Mostly it is the passion for learning, and the perseverence to improve.


ok, i never thought david mack would be so accessible to the fans which i think is great. i've always thought that he was very talented and i look up to him in so many ways(btw, i'm thinkin' bout declaring art as my major ^_^ but sometimes i feel like i don't have that much talent which is kinda upsetting >_< ) wait, now that i know he reads these things i should probably address him directly instead of using the third person. ok, hi mack, how are you? i have a couple of questions yet again. first of all, are you ever gonna come to the east coast? as in the new england area? i would really love to meet you in person but i'm not sure what i would say to you...uhmmm...hmmm...i can't remember my other question but i will get back to you as soon as i remember! (this isn't my second question, but do you like moby?) take care -dianna *_* <--look, i'm all starry eyed

Re: Kabuki classics
SUN, 12/9/01, 11:35 p.m. - In Response To: Kabuki classics (Rob Jones)

Hi Rob,

The reprints in Kabuki Classics are this:

#1- Fear the Reaper
#2- Dance of Death
#3- Circle of Blood #1
#4- COB #2
#5- COB #3
#6- COB #4
#7- COB #5
#8- COB #6
#9- Masks of the Noh #1
#10- MON #2
#11- MON #3

Classics 1-12 presents the first 12 black and white Kabuki comics. All of these original books are out of print and NOT available through any re-order program or through any distributor.

But you can still order most of the original printings from the check list in the back of each Kabuki book, which comes from my own dwindling private stash.

Sorry for being stupid, but are the Kabuki Classics range all the reprints of any that have needed it (sold out first run, etc) Have just picked up 3, 4, 5 and 6 of the Circle of Blood series at Comicana, London UK, NOT classics and am just checking these are the first ones that came out.

Thanks muchly


price/ship date - Dreams Hardcover
MON, 12/10/01, 8:14 p.m. - In Response To: price question on Dreams Hardcover (Jenna)
The price isn't listed anywere I can find. Will this be an item that can be ordered thought this wonderful offer? And if so...how much?


Hi Jenna,

The regular Hardcover [for Dreams] is $24.95.

The Limited Edition Hardcover (signed,numbered, with original sketch) is $49.95.

Last I heard was that they were shipping on 12-21. So you should be able to get them from your store before Christmas, but I don't think I can get them to you by that time.


The sooner, the better...
MON, 12/10/01, 8:16 p.m. - In Response To: Last Date for christmas shipping (Charlie Lewis)

When would the last date be to order, so that we fortinuate message boarders can get them before christmas.


Hi Charlie,

Send off the order as soon as you can. We can try to turn them out quickly, but I cannot make any guarantees on how soon the postal system will deliver the order.


Re: what exactly is the first appearance of kabuki
MON, 12/10/01, 8:20 p.m. - In Response To: what exactly is the first appearance of kabuki? (jeff)
doug at comic book world told me cob#1, my friend tells me fear the reaper #1 and fear the reaper is dated before cob. but i would have thought doug to know these things.
Give my regards to Doug at Comic Book World.

Fear the Reaper did come out a few months before Circle of Blood. It is the very first Kabuki book ever, and first appearance (not counting ads and promo previews for the book, some of which were in my VISIONS sketchbook a month earlier).
