MEGATONik Recommends Kabuki: The Alchemy
From MEGATONik.com:
Kabuki: The Alchemy
by David Mack

While this is the latest volume of Mack’s most personal work, never fear. As Kabuki says on the opening page, “All you need to know is that there is a scar on my face, I’m starting a new life, and I have a friend who is helping me.” Mack finishes divorcing his characters from the dystopian, media-saturated setting that started the series and paints a struggle for self-actualization through art and personal genius. His style contains watercolor, traditional cartooning, collage, children’s book art, photographic mash-ups, and tonal pencil work. This book has a good chance of destroying your opinions of what a comic is. Recommended for: artf%&ks, aestheticians, right brainers, soul searchers

MOBA News Bytes
From X-WorldComics.com's newsletter:
Rapture #1 (of 6), $2.99, 40 Pages
Written by Michael Avon Oeming and Taki Soma, Color by Val Staples

Oeming's demonstrated a real talent on his creative efforts, especially on his non-franchise works which are always worth checking out. This one looks interesting - so often, writers like to try and be original by telling their own story about what it would be like in a world where Super-heroes appeared... the stories have their variations, but the concept has been done to death. This title takes the opposite tack - what it would be like for all the super-powered heroes and villains to vanish, leaving the world in shambled behind them. As the title suggests, this story is thematically tied to the biblical rapture, painting the heroes and villains as warriors in the promised battle between heaven and hell. It looks like there is a lot going on here... this is definitely going to be worth your time.

Also, Mike Oeming talked with Comicon.com about his appearance on the second episode of Celebrity Apprentice.
