AN ALL-NEW MONTHLY KABUKI SERIES!
Image will soon unveil the first-ever all-new monthly spin-off of David Mack’s highly acclaimed creation Kabuki, featuring original stories of the fan-favorite Noh Operatives. Kabuki Agents: Scarab #1 (JUN990760, $2.95) is solicited in the June Previews.
"I’ve always planned on doing a series on each of the Noh agents that presents a personal view of their life from past to present, in the way I did with Kabuki in Circle of Blood," said creator David Mack. "This Scarab series is the first of these. And the events that occur in this story will have a huge impact on
the current painted Kabuki series as well."
Rick Mays, who drew Scarab in Masks of the Noh, has been working on the Scarab art for two years, and has completely finished the art for the first storyline. This enables the book to be released monthly, making it the first monthly series of brand new Kabuki material. After the initial Scarab storyline, Kabuki Agents will feature new stories on Siamese, Tigerlily, Ice, and Snapdragon.
Kabuki Agents: Scarab #1 will ship with two different fully painted covers: one by Mays and one by Mack (a 1999 Eisner Award nominee for Best Painter). Don’t miss it!
