(W) David Mack (A) Rick Mays
In celebration of the new Scarab Series by David Mack and Rick Mays, we are releasing a brand new and improved edition of the Masks of the Noh Trade Paperback - the series where Rick Mays first drew Scarab and the other Noh Agents. This story has been out of print for a while, having sold through its previous print run. Now it's available again with a new front and back cover with inside folding cover flaps painted by David Mack with a durable matte finish.
[1] This Prestige Format edition collects the entire Masks of the Noh series. These are the early Kabuki issues fans are eagerly seeking. Also included are all-new extra pages such as a Kabuki pinup by Joe Quesada (with whom Mack collaborates on the new Daredevil series), a gallery section with art by David Mack, a behind-the-scenes look at preliminary designs and sketches, a gallery of original covers, and an introduction by Terry Moore who also contributes a Kabuki/Strangers in Paradise page. Kabuki's popularity has exploded with Mack's move to Image and new readers are clamoring for the early storylines. This book delivers with thirty extra pages of new stuff!
