Home Message Boards WFC: May 1-5, 2002

I'm staying here with this message board...
WED, 5/1/02, 3:52 a.m. - In Response To: David, are you moving your board to Image, too? (Jason Pritchett)

I love this board. Been here for a long time. It is a very user friendly board and Justin runs things wonderfully.

Even before the board was up, Justin at World Famous comics was an early supporter of me and Kabuki. He had a Kabuki section up on WFC way back in 94 or early 95. I suppose that I was one of the very first creators to join World Famous Comics. In the few years since Justin added the Kabuki message board, I feel like a great crew of regulars have found a home here, and it is very user friendly to new posters and occasional posters.

So I indeed intend to stick with this board as long as it is up. Bendis and Oeming will also be dropping by on the Kabuki board from time to time. There is a strong crossover between our boards that will surely continue.

Since the new MOB imprint is up and running, that seems to be the main reason Brian moved his board over to Image--or at least that's what he said this morning. Does that mean you and/or Oeming will be moving over there, too?
The M.O.B. (Mack, Oeming, Bendis) imprint of books at Image are just a way of heading our solicitation ads in the Previews catalogues so that retailers and readers will know what kind of identity, readership, history, and personal dedication that our personal books will have. Image is a big company with a lot of different titles. A lot of them come and go and have their own varied audiences. We figured this (M.O.B. label) was a way to sort of stick together as friends and creators and let retailers know where our books stand.

We've spent years cultivating our readerships and spend a certain kind of personal dedication and artistic experimentation on our books. There are a lot of different kinds of wonderful books in the Image section of the catalogue, some new, some old, some for a very different readership than we have. Having our personal M.O.B. imprint on each of our personal books is a testament to the diversity of the different kinds of books at Image Comics. And it is also a way to remind the retailers that all the books by Mack, Oeming, and Bendis share a large crossover in readership, have a built in base of readership that we have cultivated and nurtured for close to ten years, and are from creators that are committed to our titles and our readerships and our personal integrity as creators.

Our imprint line WILL NOT be on the FRONT COVERS of our books. It will be on the Solicitation ad and on the INSIDE FRONT COVERS with the book’s personal info. At least this is how we intend for it so far. We didn’t intend to make any official announcement for this yet, but I guess someone pried it our of Bendis in one of his panels. I wasn’t going to announce it until the launch of my new upcoming Kabuki series from Image. In fact we were still discussing the name of our imprint and design. But the Mack, Oeming, and Bendis line just sort of became what it was called until then, and I guess the initials of that (M.O.B.) have kind of stuck now that it has been mentioned in the press.

As for the Image Comics message board (where Brian has just moved his message board), I will definitely have a presence on it. I’m sure I will be occasionally posting on the Bendis Board as I always have, just as he will be posting on this board. And if in the future, the Image website creates a Kabuki message board, I’m sure that I will post on that too. But I will certainly continue my message board here at World Famous Comics.


Re: News from Pittsburgh Comicon
WED, 5/1/02, 3:55 a.m. - In Response To: News from Pittsburgh Comicon (David Thornton)
From Comicon.com: And speaking of Bendis, at his discussion panel at the Pittsburgh Comicon on Saturday, Brian Bendis made a couple of announcements, and fielded a wide range of questions. First off, Bendis announced that beginning with issue #20 of Powers, the comic will feature a new identifying logo of “MOB.”

Short for Mack-Oeming-Bendis, the “MOB” logo will be on all Image books by himself, David Mack, or Michael Avon Oeming to let readers know that the book was produced by one of the three creators. Assumedly, Mack’s upcoming Kabuki projects, as well as Oeming’s newly moved Hammer of the Gods will carry the logo as well.

The M.O.B. (Mack, Oeming, Bendis) imprint of books at Image are just a way of heading our solicitation ads in the Previews catalogues so that retailers and readers will know what kind of identity, readership, history, and personal dedication that our personal books will have. Image is a big company with a lot of different titles. A lot of them come and go and have their own varied audiences.

Re: mr. mack is there any chance...
WED, 5/1/02, 4:00 a.m. - In Response To: mr. mack is there any chance... (yiku)
dear mr. mack
i´ve been checking this message board for a while now + heard much about new zealand, australia, pittsburgh... but is there any chance you´ll ever come to somewhere near austria (where I live - unfortunately)(i mean germany, switzerland, whatever...)

I love your work + would be so glad to meet you, so please let me know if you´ll ever be somewhere reachable...

yiku

Hi Yiku,

I usually do a signing in Germany about once a year. I've signed at Terminal Entertainment in Frankfurt 3 times and Nic's comics in Dueseldorf 2 times so far.

I've also signed at the ESSEN convention and the ERLANGEN convention hosted by my formet German publisher Infinity.

I'm certain that I will sign at these stores in Germany again within the next year or so. I will always post about my signings there on this message board.

I am planning on it. Hope to see you there.

WED, 5/1/02, 4:14 a.m.

Just a reminder that I will be signing in Philly next week at the very first Wizard World East.

I will be there Fri-Sun. Signing all day. Anh, Andy Lee, and Mike Oeming will also be there.

I will have tons of Kabuki Prints, orginal art, T-shirts and Kabuki hardcovers, paperback collections and back issues.

Hope to see you there.
