Hello friends. Hope you are having a great new year. The following is
a copy of an answer I gave to a poster's question form the World Famous
Comics Kabuki Message board. I thought you may be interested in it, as
it concerns DD #14 and #15:
Daredevil #14....when is it coming out? Did it come out already and I just missed it? Also, when is Kabuki #10 coming out? And is the next Kabuki arc going to be using a different art style than the previous one.
I'd like to thank David for bringing out Agents on a somewhat regular
basis. It's a good series, keep it up!
Hi There. Thanks for the kind words about Kabuki Agents.
I'm still finishing up the art to my painted DD story (16-19) so I haven't
started painting the next Kabuki series yet. But I'm sure the art will take on its own personality for that story.
As for DD #14, last I heard is that it hits stores on Jan 17th.
As for DD#15, I saw the artwork today and it is VERY good! I was really concerned at first, because this (#15) is the last issue of the storyline
I wrote, and it was by far my favorite issue when I turned in the script.
With this being the only issue Joe didn't draw, I was concerned that the
new artist (Dave Ross) might not be able to pull off all the subtleties
and changes in art style that are in this issue.
But the art and the inks (I saw 11 pages fully inked) really pulled
off the atmosphere needed for this issue. Of course the art is a bit different
from Joe's, but it actually works in this issue because the entire issue
is from the perspective of the Kingpin, and it really gives him a unigue
POV, just as Joe gave Echo and DD contrasting POVs in the earlier issues. I really need to call Dave Ross (who i've never spoken to before) and congratulate him on pulling it off. THis was a really tricky issue to do, as it ties
up all the other issues. He really pulled it off.
I'm really looking forward to your feedback on the conclusion and entirety of this story.

To all my French and European Readers!
I want to let you know that I have accepted an invitation to the French
Festival of Angouleme and will be going to Paris. I will be signing at
the Comic Box booth in Angouleme. I've signed in Paris a couple times at
Album and really enjoyed meeting my French Readers and I hope to see you
in Angouleme. It is this month. January 25-28.

Response to HHH:
I'm really glad you liked Scarab #6. What did the rest of you think?
Did you see the ad for the Kabuki Mask of the back cover? The actual mask is very amazing.

I'm trying to ignore that question. :) Please consider my suggestion
that you and everyone else also forget about that concept for now and then
ask me again at a later date. At that time I will let you in on what I've
heard of it.

Now to change the subject again (please go with me this time):) I've
been asked by the Wolverine editor to write a Wolverine Project. He made
it clear that I could do whatever I want in my own way, so I'm interested.
The funny thing was that I was already thinking of some cool visual ways
that it would be fun to paint Wolverine, and had been considering putting
him in the Echo series that I've been tinkering with. I think I could get into a good POV when writing him. What are your reactions?

We would just start with a mini series and consider things from there.

Recently, Ive heard that it will be in stores on the 24th.

I appreciate it.
I certainly don't have any need to do the same thing over again. It
has to have a unique and personal quality. Naturally, the aspects I explore
in the Echo series will go beyond what shades of her that were the focus of the DD series. It will be as series where she is defined on her own terms instead of by contrast to DD.
There will be a lot of Native American undertones, and her own self actualization.
