WED, 4/4/01, 6:30 p.m. - In Response To: MACK! (NoUseForAName)
Hey David... I really love the work you've been doing on
Dare Devil, and that's the reason I'm here. I forget which cover it is,
but it's Daredevil with the mute and they're kind of embraced, and there's
the golden gun, and the little cherubs floating around... I absolutely
LOVE that. Is there anyway I can get a print of that?? Please let me know,
because I'm very interested... thanks.
Hey thanks for the kind words. Really appreciate it.
I do sell that and other 11x17 prints at cons. If you want one send
$10 for the print (i'll sign it) and $3.95 for the postage. Same postage
rate and address as the checklist ordering info in all the Kabuki books
and on NohTV.

I've been speaking to DC/Wildstorm about taking measures to eliminate
the confusion of them crediting my name on a Star Trek book. I've been
in the comic's industry much longer than this other David Mack and I do
not want it to confuse my readers. I appreciate that he may have his own
name recognition with his Star Trek work in other mediums and industries,
I work hard to make sure that every comic book with my name has a level
of quality and my own personal identity. I take it very seriously that
my readers can rely on that when they order, purchase or read a book with
my name. I intend to take all steps possible within legal bounds to insure
that the name recognition that I built in this industry is not diluted,
and that my readers are not tricked or confused.
I appreciate DC/Wildstorm for taking the first step in correcting this
This is from the e-mail bulletin on thier mass mailing list:
A TALE OF TWO MACKS
DC Comics and WildStorm note that the David Mack credited as a writer
on the STAR TREK ® - DIVIDED WE FALL miniseries is not the same David
Mack known in the comics world for his work on Kabuki (Image) and Daredevil
(Marvel). The David Mack who wrote DIVIDED WE FALL (along with John Ordover)
is a science fiction writer who has worked on the STAR TREK ®: VOYAGER
television series as well as several STAR TREK ® novels. Issue #2 of
STAR TREK ® - DIVIDED WE FALL is solicited in the current Previews.

All the comic book stores recieved their advance copy of DD #16 today.
So I guess
that means they will hit stores next week.
I saw it today at my local store (COmic Book WOrld). Printed great!
Let me know what you think.

THU, 4/5/01, 11:11 a.m. - In Response To: Jinx intro (Brian Babyok)
Very Glad that you liked my introduction in Bendis' Jinx!
Believe it or not I actully edited the funnier and more offensive comments
of the conversation out of the intro, to protect the guilty. But still
a hillarious conversation. Especially when I was half asleep. What I enjoyed
was that none of the people talking were really trying to be funny or entertaining.
THey were totally themselves, and it is a great slice of everyday absurdity.
I always think that I should do an entire book or series on direct conversations
that I have with some of the people in my everyday life. I lose objectivity
and forget how entertaining and ridiculous it is.
LLLLLLLooking forward to seeing you, your wife and your new daughter
in PITT! Gonna be a grand time. First time I've been there in 20r 3 years!
Read the intro to the Jinx TPB last night and it was by far one of
the funniest intro's ever. Outstanding job of getting your point across
in a funny and very astute manner.
Can hardly wait for you and Ahn to see my daughter when you come
up here to Pittsburgh.
Take care and have a safe trip up here.
Talk to you soon.
