It wasn’t until she reviewed the tapes of the sessions, watching from the eye of the camera that she realized I was speaking to her. In one session, she noticed my eyes blinking in irregular patterns. Morse Code.

CONCEPT: Japan: The future. Welcome to a new age of corporate feudalism. The worlds of business, organized crime and politics now exist in a delicate interdependence. Enter the Noh, a government agency that secretly polices that balance of worlds. Kabuki, an operative of the Noh, becomes deeply affected by the death of her mother and can only relate to the world through the security of a mask. She embarks on a path of action to come to terms with her family, history, culture, and her mother's death even if her personal crusade brings her in direct conflict with the powers she serves. A mix of historical mythology, political intrigue, corporate espionage, and familial duty, elegantly told through the haunting lens of a child's fairy tale.
THIS ISSUE: After escaping the institution, Kabuki follows Akemi's directions to meet someone who can give her a new identity and a ticket out of the country to evade the Noh. But just who is this mysterious new character? [Diamond Product Code: FEB041319]
