David Mack: I am so excited that I will be able to meet you even though I am a new fan of your work. I was wondering if you had any certain amount of things that you would sign? I wanted to bring my Kabuki wall scroll and the Circle of Blood collected volume. Thank you!


Hi Crys,
Jeff's right. I don't have any limit on amount I will sign. Bring everything you want to :) And I will have many things available at my table at the show as well. There will dozens of 11x17 Kabuki prints to choose from. And Kabuki shirts. And original artwork, and all kinds of back issues and other items. Kabuki action figures, Kabuki masks, and more. I

I will be set up next to Andy Lee and the rest of the MOB guys (MackOemingBendis). Please introduce yourself. You are welcome to hang out at our table and take your time and chat. We will all be there all day Sat and Sun.

See you there,

Wiz World Texas NEXT WEEK!
MON, 11/10/03, 7:11 p.m. - In Response To: Mack @Texas ? (GAVIN)

What a great idea to bring your students! I think it will be a very informative and helpful visit for them. Thanks for checking out my work. Please introduce yourself at my table. I will be set up at Beckett entertainment promoting the debut of their new Ruule books that I did the covers for.

I will also have all my Kabuki and DD books there as well with lots of prints and original art available.

I will be signing all day every day. At a big con like this, I'm sure many artists there will be doing sketches. I imagine that the artists sign for free but that you could commission them to do sketches. I don't have time at cons to do detailed commisions (most artists go to cons to make thier money doing sketches, but I go to introduce new readers to my books and to discuss my work with them), but I can do a quick doodle for you if you like.

With such a diverse range of artists, I'm sure it will be a succesful art field trip for you and your students!

Warmest regards,

I'm new to this board...and I'm new to your art. I'm really starting to dig it big time. I have a question for you. I'm heading to the convention in Dallas on Nov. I'm a student high school art teacher who will be bringing some students to the convention...(for most this will be their first con) I've attended only a few shows and volunteered before, but this will be my first time at a Wizard show. Okay, I'll cut to the question: I see that the artists are signing at this convention...does this word "signing" mean signatures or is it possible to get sketches from you and the other guests? I've managed to get some really great stuff before..but these have been at smaller shows. I've been psyching up the students, so I just didn't want to let them down. Any information would be great.

Hello Dave!

I was wondering if there are any west coast conventions you were planning on attending? Like maybe in Portland. and if so, when they are.

hope all is well with you. i can't hardly wait until January!

chris sandford

Hi Chris,
Good to hear from you.

I do intend to do the Portland show with Bendis sometime in 2004 but don't know which date yet.

I also may do the Wiz World LA show. And of course will do San Diego and a signing in the bay area.

Will keep you updated right here when I have dates for any of these.

Re: surprise!!
MON, 11/10/03, 7:17 p.m. - In Response To: surprise!! (jorick)

Hi Jorick,
Best to you and Roos. Thanks for the interest in my work:)

E-mail Anh at and she'll see what she can do.

dear mister Mack,

As of this moment my girlfriend ( her name is Roos pronounce rose!) studies in Minneapolis for 4 months.
Since we are living in the Netherlands we are separated for a substantial amount of time. Luckily that is no problem and I am immensely proud that she is talking this opportunity. She studies at MCAD for the moment. The graphic design direction. She will be coming home right after x-mas. She got into comics because of your work. I was reading comics for a while and she usually hops along with me to pick up my new comics, when she saw your work. I believe that was the first comic she picked up. How fun!! No the fact is that she is a bigtime fan and has almost all your work.

The point is I want to surprise her big time. I'm proud of her to have made this step and we love each other dearly. Since I can not be at the cons for obvious reasons I can not ask you in person. But I would love to surprise my girlfriend with a sketch from you. I know you are very busy at the moment. So if you do not have time. then it is off. I understand. But if you do!!! I would love to hear what you can do for me and the financial aspect of this case. Maybe we can email some suggestions back and forward. Could you send me an email than? (saintofkillers@care2.com ) Thank you for reading and taking time for this.

Thank you in advance.

Kabuki reader party at my table...
MON, 11/10/03, 8:24 p.m. - In Response To: Re: how to meet someone you've never met before (crystal*rogue)

You, Jeff, and all Kabuki readers are welcome to stage my table as the meeting place. Congregate, talk, introduce yourselves, discuss Kabuki theories, wait for friends, show each other your work. Hang out with each other and all the MOB crew at our tables. It is where everything will be happening at the show!


Thnx Michael. Your advice does help but I'm not one to just walk up to someone and shake their hand. My friend Mary pushes me to try to talk to ppl that I wish I could but I could never do what she does and just walk up to them being a stranger. Just not in my nature...unless I'm extremely hyper and have at least 2 of my friends around me. =^__^'= I blush in about 1 second flat depending on what happens to or around me. Just depends on where and who I am around at the time. It was brave of you to just walk up to her like that and quite amazing that you just knew who she was; Meant to be. I'm glad it worked out for you.
