When I was learning English, I read a lot of children’s books. One was about a girl falling into a rabbit hole and talking to people who were cards and chess pieces. Then there was that Greek surgeon: Dr. Zeus. -- Kabuki: Metamorphosis #2

Rumor - Kabuki Moving to Marvel
The following rumor appeared in a column at ComicBookResources.com:
[Version 1 - posted around 12 pm (Central)]
KABUKI AND POWERS MARVEL BOUND

I understand that both Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Van Oeming's [sic] Powers, and David Mack's Kabuki will leave Image to be published by Marvel.

There was some disquiet expressed to me about the relative lack of oomph of the Powers Volume 2 relaunch at Image - though this was denied at the time. Nevertheless, Bendis' Marvel books chart high, even "The Pulse" does fairly well, whereas Powers doesn't in comparison.

Marvel have relaxed their recently imposed no-creator-owned comics role for these titles. Whether this is an exception for these two books, or whether it will be offered to others, I do not yet know.

[Version 2 - posted around 8 pm (Central)]
KABUKI AND POWERS MARVEL BOUND

I understand that both Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming's Powers, and David Mack's Kabuki will leave Image to be published by Marvel.

That's a given.

And while the light now says GREEN, let's AMBER the following. I'm told that Powers will restart from Marvel as "Powers Volume 2" as will Kabuki with Kabuki: The Alchemy.

Marvel have relaxed their recently imposed no-creator-owned comics role for these titles. Whether this is an exception for these two books, or whether it will be offered to others, I do not yet know. Is this a new perk for creators who go exclusive? Those who already have movie deals sewn up? Could it even be an arrangement between Marvel and Image as some have suggested?

I'm sure we'll find out soon...
