By the way, I heard this is going to be the new NIKE slogan.
Re: Anyone else hate having to use the bathroom?

It's such a great excuse to go outside and get some fresh air. If I
didn't have to do it, when else would I spend time in the neighbors yard?
Just kidding. I used to think it was a time consideration and perhaps
interupted my work schedule. But then I invested in depends and I don't
even have to get up now. I can write and draw and paint without ever moving.
And now I have the added perk of the extra occasional warming effect on
these cool nights. If anyone else is considering using this method to get
more work done, just remember to change the depends at least once every
three days. Otherwise a whole extra set of problems can occur.
You can add this to Dave's book of comic book tips.
info on my new Kabuki series for this January...& Bendis
Oct 08, 2003 6:31 am
It occured to me that besides using this board to just vent my version
of humor and funny stories, I should mention the new Kabuki series that I am writing and painting and will ship this Jan. Below is some info on
it that I posted on my board in response to a post (also included) and
I figured I'd include it here as well, in case any of you are looking forward
to the new Kabuki series, or in case some of you have not yet read any Kabuki yet.
[edited for length]
Thanks a bunch for the kind words. I'm glad you were able to read it all
from the beginning at once time. I urge everyone else to do this. Especially
before the new series comes out THIS JANUARY!
I can't tell enough people about your series and I'll forever tell
more people to read this incredibly deep story that you're taking us on.
I never write to creators, but I'll be damned if I can contian the excitement
I had once I finished that last issue of Kabuki Agents: Scarab! I literally had the goosebumps. Keep up the work sir and I'll keep buyin! You've got a reader for life.
The new series is a brand new era in Kabuki's life. It is NOT going
to recap anything from the previous stories. I've made sure that all six
Kabuki volumes are in print and available in collections, so I hope people will use that as an oppertunity to read everything that has come before and hopefully read it all at once like you did.
In the new series THAT is all Kabuki's past. There won't be any flashbacks to it. No catch up. But it is still a great place for new readers to start because it is a brand new start for Kabuki that is very much it's own story,
not dependant on previous stories. You don't need to read the past to understand
the primary thrust of the new story. But if you do, you will love the contrast
and the oblique and subtle hints at her past. And you will see the fruition
of many of the seeds planted in previous issues! Seeds that you didn't
know were seeds, but now you will see them blossom into something spectacular
The truth is, after you read this new series, you will want to go back
and read the previous stories again and you will see them in a new way
that is going to make you appreciate them in a brand new dimension as well
as the ways that they are already charming to you. They will still hold
that charm, but you will have a brand new perspective to appreciate them
from. It will be like looking at pictures of yourself as a child. You always
appreciated the pictures for what they were, but now that you are grown
up, you can see how those moments shaped your present life.
But the new series is specifically designed to be her NEW life. And
it is essentially an instruction manual on creating a NEW life, creating
the life of YOUR OWN PERSONAL DREAMS AND INTERESTS, that should be practical
and applicable to anyone who reads it. It is a recipe and blueprint for
creating your own reality, your own career, and your own fresh start. It
is a spell for creating your own magic. Taking the baggage of your life
and turning it into something positive and useful. Turning your garbage
into gold. KABUKI: The Alchemy is scheduled to ship in January and will be the cover of the January Previews.
We won't be overprinting, so please make sure your retailer orders
ahead of time from the catalogue.
It is going to be great to have the Kabuki letter collumn again! I'm going to cram this issue with all that I can. Sketches, etc. It will even have Brian Bendis’ early drawings of Kabuki! Most people may not know that I only intended to write Kabuki. I met Brian in 1993 and he was going to draw Kabuki from my script. This will be the very first time that I have ever published his Kabuki drawings from TEN YEARS ago!
Please read the previous Kabuki stories like JD so you are ready for it!

I remember when I was sixteen and I got my first job that paid an hourly
wage. On the first day, I went into the bathroom to take car of buisiness
while still on the clock, and I thought, this is amazing, I am getting
paid to use the bathroom.
