A rational person will not expect the world to conform around their ideas. They understand that they must conform to the conventions of the rational world. Therefore, all important breakthroughs are made by irrational people.

Kabuki: Volume 1 HC Selected as Best Re-Release of 2010
From the Girls Read Comics Too blog:
Dee: Another very close race, and Kurt Busiek & Stuart Immonenís Shockrockets came so close to winning it. But another book crept in there for me, and won me over.

Kabuki Volume 1 (Hardcover)
Writer & Artist: David Mack

Dee: Wow, is David Mack talented. I had no idea just how much until I started looking through Kabuki books, and picked up some of the Reflections sketchbooks from him at NYCC. This is a story that is lyrical, slowly unfolding with each beautiful page. His art suits it so well. A haunting story with haunting art. Itís the best way I can describe it.
