Re: Scarab Figure Question
WED, 7/10/02, 2:29 p.m. - In Response To: Scarab Figure Question (VF-1Guy)
Will the Scarab figure from Diamond be the same scale as
the Moore Kabuki figures?
Yep. It will be the same size and proportion as the Kabuki figure. That
was one of the things that asked for going into the project.
Kabuki Cover book in the works!
MON, 7/15/02, 8:24 p.m. - In Response To: Crazy over variants! (resonence)
A lot of people have just started reading Kabuki from the collected volumes. They missed the original individual issues.
There are plans in the works to have a HUGE book that presents each
and every Kabuki cover from every Kabuki related book EVER printed. It
will print the art with out the logos, and it will also have the original
sketches and preliminary drawings for each of the covers with comentary.
I get a lot of requests for a book like this.
I't's going to be a lot of work to put together, but I'm looking forward
to it. So far I've just been calling it the KABUKI COVER GALLERY. Other
suggestions are KABUKI COVER ART BOOK, or the KABUKI ART BOOK.
If any one has additional title suggestions, I'd like to hear them.
Is there any compilation or plans for such, that would bring
together the cover art for every Kabuki comic from all the publishers?
MON, 7/15/02, 8:27 p.m. - In Response To: Finding Kabuki books (Wade
Stuff like this is a big help for people searching for my books! I really
I've noticed some people are having difficulty finding some
of the Kabuki comics & trades. I have emailed a couple of them and I'm posting a copy of that email in case this info is useful to anyone
else: (although, I feel like a bit of a heel advertising like this; I'm
just trying to get Kabuki into the hands of as many people as possible.
<<<Hey - -
I saw your post & wanted to help out. I own a comic store in
PA and carry everything David Mack does -- he's a genius! (I had the pleasure
of meeting him again at the Wizard World comic convention in Philly and
he did a nice sketch for me even though his hand was injured. Whatta guy.)
Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself & let you know that
I can assist you in your quest -- believe me, it's worth it to track down
these gems. As far as content goes, it looks like the hardcovers are the
way to go for the most extras, like pinups, pics, & behind-the-scenes
stuff. Unfortunately, they are more expensive than the trade paperbacks.
Here's a list of the books that either I have presently in stock
or can get within a week:
KABUKI REFLECTIONS #1 4.95
KABUKI REFLECTIONS #2 4.95
KABUKI REFLECTIONS #4 4.95
KABUKI VOL 1 CIRCLE OF BLOOD S&N HC 49.95
KABUKI VOL 1 CIRCLE OF BLOOD TP 19.95
KABUKI VOL 2 DREAMS HC 24.95
KABUKI VOL 3 MASKS OF NOH HC 19.95
KABUKI VOL 3 MASKS OF NOH TP 12.95
KABUKI VOL 4 SKIN DEEP HC 23.95
KABUKI VOL 4 SKIN DEEP S&N HC 39.95
KABUKI VOL 4 SKIN DEEP TP 12.95
KABUKI VOL 5 METAMORPHOSIS HC 49.95
KABUKI VOL 5 METAMORPHOSIS S&N HC 79.95
KABUKI VOL 5 METAMORPHOSIS TP 24.95
KABUKI VOL 6 SCARAB HC 29.95
KABUKI VOL 6 SCARAB S&N HC 59.95
I also have a ton of single issues as well as misc. merchandise like
the Kabuki statue, bust, t-shirts, etc.
If you would like additional info on these volumes or have absolutely
any other questions about DM's available work, please don't hesitate to
let me know.
Well, there it is. If anyone wants to blast me for being a capitalist
pig, let 'er rip. But I honestly think it's a shame for anyone to go without
this stuff; it's too damn good.
Easy info for all Kabuki books...
MON, 7/15/02, 9:11 p.m. - In Response To: Confused fan. Need straightforward
Hello, Ryan, Resonance, and everyone else who is looking for some help
and info on how to get the Kabuki books and what order they come in...
All I want to know is:
The most recent collections of any of the books are the books that will
serve you best. I only reprint a collection when the previous print runs
are completely out of stock. And if I can find a way to improve it on the
next print run (better paper, clearer presentation, some extra stuff) then
1) First, I want the books with the most. This means, most pages,
containing extra artwork, story, whatever. This most likely means the most
recent reprints, like that which I've seen for Skin deep that just came
out a couple days ago. Is it better than to get the TPB or to get the books
Now all of the collected volumes have thier order of reading on the
spine in the form of a volume #. There are 6 collected volumes so far.
So you easily know which one comes first.
Also, in each and every collection, and each and every individual Kabuki issue, there is a checklist that lists for you all of the Kabuki books
in their order of reading (collections and individual issues).
The checklist also enables to you order something directly from me, if you cannot find it anywhere else.
The Kabuki websites also list all of this information.
And your local comic shop can order for you any book that you request.
They have a list of each Kabuki volume in each and every issue of the Previews catalogue that they order from.
This whole thing is giving me a headache... I just want
it all in a comprehensive package. Is that too much to ask? LOL!
I think having each and every Kabuki storyline collected into numbered volumes in your choice of paper back or hardcover, that I constantly keep in print covers it.
But if you have any specific suggestions, please let me know. I'm still trying to improve. Let me know if there is anything else I can do to make things more clear and accessable.
2) Where do I buy them. I've seen some of the books for
sale, here and there but even the sale of the books is a scattered affair.
Is there one site that offers the whole series for sale online?
Some of the finer comic stores do carry a complete KABUKI seciton in there store that has everything that the new Kabuki reader could want. And they reorder when a collection sells out to keep it in stock in the store. I LOVE these stores.
Unfortunately, many stores only order enough to keep it in stock for
a week or 2. But you should be able to ask your store, and have them offer
to order everything for you at any time.
If any of this is a problem, you can order directly from the Kabuki checklist in the back of any Kabuki book or the website and get it directly.
Or just order online, by e-mailing Anh Tran at .
She can answer any of your questions and send you any Kabuki book that you want to order. And I'll be happy to sign it as well. THis offer is open to everyone with questions about the books or looking to get any books.
Thanks for seeking my books! Let us know if there are any questions.
