David Thornton's amazing new Kabuki site!
THU, 9/16/04, 4:26 a.m.

This is the most extensive site I have ever seen.
I recieved you letter about it. And thanks for the books you sent!

I've tried to look at everything on this site, but still haven't seen every single clickable thing.

I think readers are going to love this.
Thank you very much for putting this together.

Should we go ahead and announce the address for it now?

David doesn't get his comics..

well, actually, they're going out tomorrow (sorry DT, I have school during PO hours), but I will put a curse on them or something.

I've tried to google this site to no avail. I must see it. I was good today and gave my teacher a copy of Alchemy #1 and sent my copies of all 6 Kabuki trades away to a friend as a gift.. so please replace this gap on my bookshelf with a url? pleasE?

I don't think he has put in on the search engines yet. He's going to present it soon I think! He asked me to go over it first to check it out before he made the big intro with it.

I am awed by how extensive it is.

He basically has a list and image of (and info about) every single published thing I've ever done.

Maybe just a couple things I haven't seen on it yet that he may include later.

But I am stunned by everything he has on there and how expertly catalogued it is. Including just about every post I've ever made on the internet, and all my answers to frequently asked questions, etc.

I love how he presents all the art and quotes on it too.

Look forward to it!
He is obviously a professional at this kind of thing.

It is the site I will visit to learn about myself! what I've done, and what is coming out and when.

Now I hope you can understand my surprise and delight when I found a store accepting pre-orders for both of the figures

David Thornton

Glad to hear that!
Thanks for the info!

Mack has a doodle in Torso #8.
Now to find Vital Man!!
Oh, no!

The site includes a lot of really old stuff. Enjoy it on the site, but I hope you don't feel the need to collect it.
Bendis and i both, have tried to make it a point not to print in collections or try to sell to our fans stuff that we felt wasn't good enough to keep in print.

He drew the line at stuff before his crime comics, and I drew the line at the beginning of Kabuki.

Stuff before that, we didn't want to burden fans with, or try to resell it, as it just isn't up to our standards now.

So enjoy it if you want to, but please know that I'm not promoting it to you. I'm not trying to get you to buy it. I do not endorse it.
That goes for pretty much all of my pre- Kabuki work.

What I dig about the site, is that it has all the DD and Alias covers, and all of the Kabuki covers I ever did, right there for you to check out.
And lots more.

Would the projects be Boondoggle and Captain Kentucky? I noticed these two projects were included in a NKU library collection.
Well, I inked a cover for Boondoggle. Maybe 94 or 95?
But I've never heard of the other one. Or if I have heard of it, I have forgotten it. In all seriousness, I can't imagine that I worked on something with that name.

I was thinking, I do have some other Album covers that you may not have seen or know about. And some other book covers. But I'm trying to decide if I should keep them buried

I'm thinking to send you some sketches and photos for future inclusion.

Also I have interviews in the 2005 Writers Market and the Artists Market books. And some other things like that, I should list and update you on.

Thanks for the link.
I looked at it, and I'm pretty sure I've never heard of that title before.
It could be a mistake, or maybe something where someone mentioned me or included a drawing I did that I don't know about?

Ooo. This is going to take up the rest of my internet time tonight, for sure. Good job the website. Thanks so much for putting it up
Are you the Dawn I met this year in San Diego?

With the photos dressed as Kabuki?
I wonder if those are on the site too.
I'm still going through the site as well

What other boards are you posting it on?
FRI, 9/17/04, 6:16 a.m. - In Response To: Re: nice, but you're missing something  (David Thornton)

Hey DT,
Was good to see you on the benbo

Will you be dropping by any other boards to intro the new site?

Re: Presenting

No problem on the plug

Thanks for allowing me to include your pictures in the upcoming Fan Works section, which I can't wait to see myself

Do you have Lindze's Scarab Costume on it as well?
That was another of the best Kabuki costumes.

There was a Kabuki costume in SD this year and I've seen a few Snapdragon's this year as well.

And Tigerlilly in Philly!

I love the random quotes and images at the top by the way... I'll have to figure out how to do that.
I like that part too!

Page layouts has *always* been a very tough decision-making process for me.

In the case of my main page, I definitely plan on adding more Spotlight banners (ie one for Anh's awesome Tranimals when they are in stock at Tower Records) in order to break up the text-heavy flow of headlines

Hey DT!
The Tranimals should be in all the Tower stores by now. Anh saw them herself in the Atlanta Tower stores, and has reports of other sitings in NY, VA, and all over the country.

Also, I should note that the sales figures you have there, are I think the ones from the monthly estimates that I've seen on line in other places. They seem to be conservative estimates based on the ranking order of the books of the pre-orders of that month.

They aren't the same figures that I recieve from Marvel and Image (which are better, thankfully!), and they only attempt to reflect the estimates of the first ADVANCE orders for that ONE MONTH. They don't attempt to estimate sales beyond that month or re-orders, or the entire printrun sell-through.

For ranking the order in the top100 sellers of that ONE MONTH, they can be useful as conservative guesstimates, but don't nearly reflect the actual amount of the copies of that particluar book in circulation.

Sounds good!

I think there are also boards at the pulse,, newsarama... and I hear there is a cool GIANT ROBOT board.

Secretasiangirl from this board posts there.

And they sell Tranimals in the GR stores in LA and SanFran
