Thanks for posting this.
I will also be at the Atlanta Comicon in April, The NY con in early
April, The Motor City Novi Comicon in May, The Toronto Comicon in August
(or July?) the Dragon Con in August or Spet. Mid Ohio in November.
I'm also checking into, and expect to attend, the Wiz Texas show in
November, and possibly the Wiz Philly show , and the March Chicago show.
Will confirm on this board when I have more details. I was just going
over it today.
Re: New here...
THU, 1/8/04, 1:24 a.m. - In Response To: New here... (Carrie)
Hi everyone, newbie alert! I don't know how I haven't stumbled
across this board before, as I love Mack's work (both on Daredevil and
Kabuki). So thanks to Alice for the link on the manwithoutfear.com to the interview at Sequential Tart which in turn had a link to this board. Phew! Well, I'm here now, anyway. I've just finished reading Vision Quest, and am re-reading bits and pieces of Kabuki before Alchemy comes out. A very
Seems like a friendly board!
Thanks for reading.
Re: malaysian fan
THU, 1/8/04, 1:26 a.m. - In Response To: malaysian fan (WorldHurricane)
tyler here. i ran into this girl at deviantART who did a watercolor
painting that i commented on. she mentioned your work, i told her about
putting up the show at nku, and this was her response: "Dude, I'd probably
kill a few goats to be able to see him in real life! And I'd murder a cow
to get his books. Though they're not that rare here, getting my hands on
them is quite difficult as I dont go out often enough to catch each issue.
I heard he was making a movie too, there was even a poster for it in one
of the books, but I thought it was a joke thing. I mean, it had Gong Li
and all as cast. Thats like.. no way! If you see him again, please tell
him there's this girl in Malaysia who's a big fan."
i didn't realize you were so well known
Please give her my regards, and my invitation ot post on this board.
You are both welcome to post your artwork and promote your art endeavors
here if you wish.
Re: MACK! on Sequential Tart
THU, 1/8/04, 1:27 a.m. - In Response To: MACK! on Sequential Tart (Mia)
Thanks so much for bringing attention to my articles! I
just remembered that I hadn't posted the notice up here yet. And thank
you again, David, for being so gracious in taking the time to answer my
Re: Scarab figure
THU, 1/8/04, 1:30 a.m. - In Response To: Scarab figure (pup)
Okay. We know the Kabuki figures and other new items were
held back for the release of the new series. Well, January is the big month
- so can we assume I can get my hands on a Scarab figure by February? Mack? Anyone? My Kabuki figures are getting lonely.
I understand that the Kabuki sickle and the new action figures (starting
with SCARAB, then Siamese) will be offered this year as the Kabuki series is in full swing. I should have an ad in the first issue of Kabuki Alchemy that has the exact date.
THU, 1/8/04, 1:37 a.m. - In Response To: mr.mack (steph)
Thanks for reading and for the thoughful post. Wow. A lot of these
questions are things that I deal with in the new Kabuki ALCHEMY story.
So I'm sort of trying put the answers to all of these questions in a clear
and understandable way, as a lot of people seem to be very interested in
this. As I am myself. For specifics with me, check out a lot of my recent
interviews. Including the one in the Cincinnati Enquirer and City Beat.
you can still find them on line. Just google them with my name. And for more intimate detail, check out the series and let me know what you think.
dearest mr. mack, forgive my grammatical mistakes because
i'm sitting here quite obliterated at 10 in the morning. I'm trying to
be quiet w/ my boyfriend behind me sleeping. I can.t express to to you
what your work has done for me. My feeble rhetoric could not come near
what I would like to say of your work. The explosion of stimulus which
you create is unmatched. Reading your poetry, envying your brush strokes,
understanding your loss, i am overcome. Your work has proven to me to be
as literarily captivating as any classic epic and as visually stunning
as any truly recongnized master's work. david, you talk of different types
of genius. You seem to juggle them all quite well. What is the key to organizing
your talents so that you don't spread each one so thin that you render
them all useless? How do you maintain an artist's mind in so many departments
sucessfully? I am by no means a recluse. I work as a bartender in the only
"rock" bar in my town, i have people skills. I have been a decent painter
all of my life, always written feverently, danced and sang. i feel like
I have all of the abilities that are good for nothing in this world. Where
does this left brainedness come into play with someone so involved with
the arts? In the mean time I am in awe of your persecution and order and
your grasp on perfection and equillibrium inspires me. you are an amazing
exception. my awe is inexplicable. please tell me what it is that keeps
you from being disuaded and polluted. I feel that my vices are getting
the best of me, i feel weak. What has helped you david? It means everything
to me what you say. thank you, steph
Re: thanks for the inspiration...
THU, 1/8/04, 1:41 a.m. - In Response To: thanks for the inspiration...
just wanted to say i think you're the best comic artist
in the world right now, because there is nothing like your art. the fact
that you write some of the best stories ive ever read comic or otherwise
is just mind blowing.
I recently handed in a piece of coursework for my Multimedia course.
under influences i only had one name, David Mack. I fell into comics and
one of the first i read was Wake up, i still read it every few weeks. Until
i read that and was amazed by the artwork, all of my pictures had no form.
i was lost. My work isnt like yours.... more modern but with a feeling
of hand crafted work. and nowhere near as good.... but thanks to Wake up,
Skin deep and just about every alias cover, ive found my style and im sticking
And i got the highest grade on the course for that bit of work. so
NEW Scarab T-shirt - GAI JEANS!
THU, 1/8/04, 1:45 a.m. - In Response To: Thanks Mack (nigel)
There will be the new T-shirt that is the cover of Scarab #2 and the next month, there will be a black T-shirt that just has the big GAI JEANS logo...
also from Graphittil designs.
Wow I just heard about Kabuki: Alchemy and I can't wait to see what
you have in store for Kabuki, Akemi & the rest. Also I loved the way you ended Echo's story in Daredevil. Looks like she created some "Alchemy"
for herself as well.
I see that the cover of my first Kabuki comic (Scarab #2) is being
made into a t-shirt (very cool!!) Will there be any other Scarab art making
it to t-shirt form?
Glad to see you in Toronto! I intend to be there again this year!
PS. Thanks for signing my 'circle of blood' book at the Toronto Comic Con . I didn't even know you were gonna be there! It was a great surprise.

Hello David Mack and everyone on this message board, I am
a fairly new comic book writer and I have discovered David Mack's beautiful
artwork/storytelling through Daredevil. I just wanted to congratulate David on the great job he does on everything he works on and I hope to see you at a convention soon (I was at the Canadian National Comic Book Expo in
Toronto this summer, but unfourtunately, I couldn't drop by your table
:-(. I hope you will come back to Toronto in the future. I am looking forward
to that). To everyone else on this board, Happy New Year ! And happy comic-book
reading (ok, I realize that sounds a bit cheesy, but... it's true). Hope
to talk to everyone here in the future.
Re: News: Upcoming convention appearances

Also a signing with Bendis and Andy Lee in Portland con in October. I think the weekend of Oct 10.
Re: News: Upcoming convention appearances
THU, 1/8/04, 5:20 p.m. - In Response To: Re: News: Upcoming convention
Is there any way we can tempt you over towards Western Europe,
David? UK, France, Ireland, or anywhere within striking distance? There
must be cons over here too (the last one I went to was about 20 years ago!).
It would be so good to see your work *up close and personal*, as, from
what I hear, the printed page doesn't do it justice. Wow - it's pretty
amazing stuff in print, but I would so like to see it in its original format.
It looks like this year's pretty busy for you, but maybe next year? I'm sure I'm not alone in wanting to see
you show your work over here :-)
I love being in Europe. I usually go at least once a year to do book signings and some conventions. This usually corresponds with a European publisher arranging for me to travel in promotion with a newly translated Kabuki book.
There will be a new French translation of Kabuki Cirlce of Blood debuting
this Spring. So perhaps I will be in France sometime this year, or possibly
in the Festival of Anguleme next January.
And a new Itallian translation is in the works, so I hope to visit Italy
as well as soon as I can.
And when the new Kabuki series is in full swing, it should be a good time to arrange a new European book signing tour for me, like I did a couple times when my last series was in full bloom.
I'll keep you updated on this board of these developments! Best!

appearances (chris sandford)
I remember a while back you said you were going to a con here in the northwest around the beginning of this year? Is that still on, or not, or was it the pizza?
It turns out the Portland show I'm doing is the October one. I hope you can still make it. You live in Portland now don't you?
It was good to talk with you in Chicago. Thanks for the kind words about my Echo story. I'm glad you got something from it.
Are you going to any other cons this year?

JL: Which comic book artists do you like? I see some influences
from Travis Charest, Bill Sienkiewicz. Any I am missing?
GdO: Uh-oh. That's a dangerous question, I could write five pages
on this… I love: Buscema, Charest, Mignola, Mack, Madureira, Pearson, Quitely, McKean, Bisley, Fabry, Windsor-Smith…the list goes on and on.
