Hey, Mack, just wondering if you'd gotten that package i sent you--had a bunch of comix i did inside. just curious. anybody else that wants to read them, check out my homepage... or don't. *shrugs* whatever.

Take care, all! :^)

--Kyle

Hi Kyle,

Yes, I sure did. Thank You for sending them!
I didn't read'em all yet, but I enjoyed what I looked at so far. I'm glad that the 24 hour comic is so satisfying for you. It may be fun for me to try sometime.

the further adventures of Kabuki...
MON, 12/17/01, 7:10 a.m.

Just to let everyone know:

I've been doing a lot of work on the new Kabuki series. Doing a lot of writing, refining the scripts, polishing ideas and getting very psyched to launch it.

It is really great to immerse myself in this new story. It is a new part of the character's story that I have been looking forward to while I was working on the previous stories. Really looking forward to how people are going to respond to the various phases and evolutions of Ukiko's life.

MACK signing in France...
TUE, 12/18/01, 3:44 p.m.

It is official. Anh and I will be at the Festival of Angouleme again this year. I will be signing at the Marvel France Booth. Marvel France is the French publisher of Kabuki, and they will be releasing the KABUKI Metamorphosis collection early next year (2002). They were kind enough to invite Anh and I as guests of the show to sign at their booth in promotion of the New release of KABUKI Metamorphosis for the first time in French.

After Angouleme, I will be signing in Paris the following week at two bookstores: ALBUM (my third signing there) and at ARKHAM (my first time there).

I believe that Jae Lee will also be signing with me.

I hope to see as many of my French and European readers there that can make it.

THU, 12/20/01, 9:30 p.m. - In Response To: Open Canvas Fanart-quick-piccie for MAck! LOL (Ghostgirl)

Wow! That is VERY well done. I'm not familiar with the program you used, but the finished art is very impressive.

Very relaxed and loose, but totally captures the character in a Japanese style.

Thanks a lot for showing it!

Welcome...
THU, 12/20/01, 9:33 p.m. - In Response To: Siamese (look-a-like or something) (Ghostgirl)

Welcome to the Kabuki message board.

Thanks for your interest in Kabuki. I hope that you do read all the books. Let me/us know what your reaction is to the Kabuki stories when you have a chance to read them.

Thanks,

David

Heya!
Everything I know about Kabuki I just read at the http://www.nohtv.com/ website.(Man, I just have to get this comic! omg I love the artwork and I have to know more bout the story!)

So just thought it was kinda funny, how this pic I made not very long ago kinda resembled the Siamese character: http://xanxan.homestead.com/files/GGicon4.jpg
I swear I didn't know of Siamese before and Ghostgirl has been my nick for like 5 years now.

Anyways I'm really curious bout the story and I'm gonna try my best to find some KAbuki stuff! (Dunno if they have this stuff in Holland )
Mack you rock!

THU, 12/20/01, 9:46 p.m. - In Response To: Thanks for your time (David Whitehouse)

Hi David,

Thanks a lot for your kind words. I appreciate you posting on the board here.

I have indeed heard of Shadowbox Cabaret! In fact my girlfriend and I were just talking about it the other day and saying we should go check it out. And your name sounded very familiar to me. I think I read about you recently in a newspaper.

Congratulations on all of your success. And for your words here. It is great to learn that you are familiar with my work.

Feel free to plug your show here on the board, or post a link to your site if you want to. There are a lot of fans of the arts on this board. I'm sure they would be happy to learn about your theater company.

I'll have to attend a show asap.

Warmest regards,

David


Re: A Few ?'s For Mack
THU, 12/20/01, 10:09 p.m. - In Response To: A Few ?'s For Mack (Mike B)

Hi Mike,

Happy Holidays to you too.

Thanks for reading my books.
Below, some responses to your questions...

Now I don't know if this will be revealed in future issues of Kabuki or not but I was somewhat confused by Oni/Kai in Circle of Blood. What was Oni's role in the Noh? Was there an original Oni that Kai had killed and secretly replaced? I know Kai was there to plot the deaths of all of his competition but will it ever be revealed how he infiltrated the Noh? I understand if you don't want to reveal this info quite yet.
-----The implication was that there probably was another person who originally wore the Oni mask, and at some point Kai infiltrated the Noh and "replaced" him.

I do have some future stories with Kai planned chronicalling his earlier life. It is possible that some of those stories could touch on or drop hints to the mechanics behind his infiltration of the Noh.

Will there be Oni and/or Dove masks made?
-----These are not on the immediate plans/schedule, but if there proves to be a huge demand for these two masks, I would be happy to accomodate that. I think that Moore Creations would make them, IF they were sure that the masks would sell well. But at the moment, I don't think they believe that these two masks would sell as well, or be as popular as the current eight Noh Masks.

But if they feel the demand, I think they would do it.

Just got my info packet on the Megacon in the mail and I
----Cool, I hope I get one. I'd like to see how they are promoting it.
can't wait to go. In it they only profiled four people in the comic industry who were attending, it was nice to see that you were one of them. I've read how you've done Kabuki panels at past conventions. Any plans to hold one at the Megacon?
----That is nice to hear. Glad they profiled me in the packet. Looks like they are doing some heavy promotion for it. I'm really looking forward to attending in February.

I think that they did say that I would be doing one panel. It would be nice if it is a "Spotlight on Kabuki" or "Spotlight on Mack" type panel like the ones I do at Mid-Ohio Con.

I really like to let the questions from the audience drive the panel, and do a back and forth with everyone.

Finally before I go, just wondering if there is any news on the Kabuki movie front? Anything? Just a lil scrap or tidbit of info?
----wellllll, I did just close a deal for Kabuki as a LIVE ACTION film. Other than that, I'm not supposed to say anything other than my own work for FOX (which besides writing the treatment is listed ast "Visual Designer, Creative Consultant, and Co-Producer").

Would love to say more (especially who they are mentioning for the lead role!!!), but I should wait until that stuff is official and let them announce it first.

Thanks for your interest, and for reading my books,

David
