A bi-monthly, on-going series.
Finally revealed! The long awaited answer to the question posed at the end of Kabuki Metamorphosis (Issues 1-9): "Which Noh Agent died in Kabuki #9?" Featuring guest appearances by every one of the Noh Agents, in this issue we finally see what was never shown in any previous Kabuki book. One of them dies in this issue. No joke. No Dream. No gimmick. One of the Noh Agents is gone forever. This issue includes special Kabuki scenes ILLUSTRATED by DAVID MACK! Mack returns as ARTIST for a segment that intricately weaves this issue into Metamorphosis. Plus: The revelation of last issue's mystery guest. A ghost from Scarab's past in Japan's criminal subculture collides with her present assignment as a government operative in this pivotal concluding issue to the Scarab story line.
"Even if I didn't know David, I would buy every single comic he releases. I am in awe of his constant excellence. There is more artistic invention in one Kabuki page than most comic artists muster throughout their entire careers." - Brian Michael Bendis (Powers, Ultimate Spiderman)
