Before CaliberComics.com was closed, Joe Martin's biography page stated: "Also in 1989, [Comic Book World owner Paul] Mullins introduced Martin to another local creator, David Mack. Together the two of them collaborated on a project that they called Thrillseeker (Mack penciled and inked, Martin dialogued and lettered), that has never seen publication. They also collaborated on a short story for Oh! Comics that Martin penciled and Mack inked. Martin remembers the first consultation between he and Mack that was practically the birthing of Mack's now-popular creation, Kabuki. They still chuckle when they talk about such things."

Thrillseeker. (not released 1990?) Story about a janitor
who dials a 1-900 number. turns out to be assassins. He has to fight for
his life using janitorial supplies. Kabuki was one of the assassins. this
is where the naval flag outfit comes from.
True. Thrillseeker was a book I did at 17 the summer after I graduated
high school. Wrote, lettered, pencilled and inked it. I did it for fun
for myself, I wasn't working professionally at that time, and didn't offer
it to any publishers. I still have never published it.
It never mentions the word Kabuki, but one of the characters in the
story has the Kabuki outfit and sickles.
