Kabuki: The Alchemy #5 Review
Below is Paul LaCroix's review of Kabuki: The Alchemy #5, which received a perfect score of 5 out of 5:
To be a single leaf, Kabuki is a gust of wind. Not restrained by being a panel to panel picture play of literally illustrated drama, here consciousness stream with commentary amid a chorus of character introspection and unbound visuals. I'm explaining in the simplest of possible terms that David Mack is taking us all back to school, and showing us all what the format, the art form of comics truly holds in it's potential.


David Mack Expands on Shakespeare Reference
David Mack posted the following note about the Shakespeare reference in Kabuki: The Alchemy #5:
I'm glad you brought up the Shakespeare thing. You don't need to take from that Shakespeare story the idea that I believe that. It is not that I'm pushing that view as a fact. And it isn't even that Akemi necessarily believes it when she tells it to Kabuki.

What is important about it, is that the Shakespeare story brings up a point that Akemi wants to drive home to Kabuki. And it will be brought up again later as it plays a big role in the theme of the future issues.

So hopefully it is irritating to you enough that you remember the story and thereby get the point, but you don't need to worry that Kabuki or even Akemi are necessarily attached to that theory as fact, so much as that it illustrates a point to Kabuki.
