Some readers mentioned that they had all of the other stories from the

Eye Movements from Crypt of Dawn #2) and wanted to know if they could get this story on its own. So this is my effort to accomodate that request.

Re: News from (Marvel) France
TUE, 8/27/02, 3:58 p.m. - In Response To: News from (Marvel) F rance
Hi, Mr Mack!
Thanks a lot for the News!
It's official on Marvel France's website since this morning: the
second Kabuki French TPB is scheduled for December; it will be 288 pages long with 112 in Black and White. it will contains a reprint of the Skin Deep story already printed in France some years ago.
I probably buy it in January at Angouleme...If I see you of course
I will probably ask you some sketch and signings... [;P]
Happy with the news, respectfully and friendly
I think the 112 pages is where the book will collect all of the stories
from Masks of the Noh, and I believe it also collects all of the painted stories from Dreams as well as the Skin Deep books.
Hope to see you again in Angouleme!
