[Adventures of the Vital-Man was] not a book that I wrote, created or controlled or profited from the sale of. It was a book that I got offered to pencil when I was like seventeen or eighteen. I did it in either 90 or 91 when I was a Freshman in college.
It is sort of a retro pulp hero type thing set in the 1930s sort of like the Shadow or Doc Savage. I was happy to get the work experience (lots of 1930s period reference in cars, guns, hair, clothes, buildings, etc), but I'm sure that it is not a book that you or most Kabuki readers would be interested in. The whole thing is purposefully written (not by me) in the old cliché comic style.
I remember that I got paid $10 a page for my work on it. And it took me about twelve hours a page. I can't believe I did seven issues. It was something I would do in between classes in college...and I was excited to be paid and printed while learning the basics.
For those that enjoyed some of this early practice work, thanks for the support, but believe me, there is no reason to reprint any of this stuff.
