Re: A message for Dave
SAT, 9/11/04, 9:43 a.m. - In Response To: A message for Dave (Mark)
Mr. Mack, I met you briefly at the Toronto Con this past
August and had a friend of mine get a personal yet quirky autograph/dedication
to a Kabuki book for me. You probably don't remember, but it was very cool
of you to write what you did. Anyhow, I hadn't read Kabuki at that
point, but now that I have I must say it's brilliant work. (Even though
you're probably sick of hearing that by now lol.) Thanks again.
I'm pretty sure I remember which dedication this was!
Thanks a bunch for taking the innitiaitive to read Kabuki, and I appreciate the kind feedback!
And welcome to the messageboard.
I had a great time in Toronto!
Re: I just read all the Kabuki trades...
SAT, 9/11/04, 9:46 a.m. - In Response To: I just read all the Kabuki
I remember you from Chicago!
Thank you so much for reading Kabuki and for the kind response to my
I really appreciate the thought you put into it and I'd like to include
it in the letters collumn of an upcoming issue if that is ok.
Welcome to the messageboard!
Re: Wizard World Texas
SAT, 9/11/04, 9:48 a.m. - In Response To: Wizard World Texas (JonS)
Is David going to be at Wizard World Texas in November?
I probably will be there but no 100% confirmed yet.
It was great seeing him there last year but he's not
on the guest list this year (yet) ?
I'll post here when I know for sure! I'll probably know sometime in
Re: I just wanted to say thank you...
SAT, 9/11/04, 9:50 a.m. - In Response To: I just wanted to say thank
...to Mack for being so nice at Dragon*Con. He knew me (or
at least pretended to ) from the Bendis Board and was supercool.
He talked with me for awhile and gave me alot of freebies that were much
appreciated! I can't wait to read all the Kabuki comics! I was forced to admit I've never read Kabuki (one reason I've never posted here) in spite of enjoying his work on DD and his Alias covers... I picked up Circle of Blood and can't wait to read it.
It was great!
Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks on your own forum. I'll be back
once I've read the book...
I remember you from the Bendis board.
Loved the con. And I saw your cool con pics that you posted on the
Bendis board! Thanks for the kind words!
Let me know what you think of the book.
Re: MACK original art
SAT, 9/11/04, 9:53 a.m. - In Response To: MACK original art (FretlessGroove)
Glad the art arrived to you safely!
This is the first time I've actually posted, but I kinda lurk around
here from time to time.
I'm super-geeked cause I bought 2 original pages from DD 51 at Wizard
World Chicago. Just took them to get framed on Thursday and I can't wait
to see how they turn out!
I had actually looked at the pages at the Motor City con but just
wasn't quite mentally prepared to shell out the cash for them. I was _so_
relieved when I saw he still had them at Wizard World! (And Mack gave me
a great deal for buying both pieces, by the way. Don't want to make it
sound like he's overcharging. They're worth every penny and more!)
Anyway, I guess this is a bit premature, but I'm just sharing my
excitement. When I get the final framed pieces I'll try to take some good
pics with my digicam and post them here.
Anyone else here own any original Mack pieces?
(I also happen to own Scarab #4, pg 7 by Mack/Mays as well as the
awesome two-page spread of Powers #10 pgs 16,17 by Oeming.)
Thanks for the words here, and glad you finally started posting on the board!
I'm sure the framing will turn out great.
You have some of my favorite pages from that issue!
Re: New- Kabuki Sculpt pics!
SAT, 9/11/04, 9:54 a.m. - In Response To: New- Kabuki Sculpt pics!
And great to see you in Toronto!
Was nice to see the sculpting in person.
SAT, 9/11/04, 9:58 a.m. - In Response To: Toronto scene (Ward Shipman)
Great to see you in Toronto again.
I'm really looking forward to the Kabuki piece!
For everyone that hasn't seen it, I presented some of Ward's amazing
work in the back of Reflections #4. Check it out!
And he's also sited as an influence and inpiration on the inside front
cover of the Meta trade.
Good to see you again its been awhile . Its been hectic between
school and a computer meltdown I have been out of the action. I'm back
with a brand new website that I invite you and all the people on the board
to see. Oh and because its flash it takes about two minutes to load
David your new kabuki story looks great. I'm doing a Kabuki illustration and I have to say its fun to play in your world
Take care and I will talk to you soon
Re: Thanks David...
SAT, 9/11/04, 10:02 a.m. - In Response To: Thanks David... (TiGH WaLKER)
I remember you and your work from the con in Toronto!
Thank you very much for the kind feedback.
I've very happy to hear that you get something useful from my work.
I intend to print your post in an upcoming issue of the new Kabuki series if that is OK with you.
Keep up the great work! You are very talented.
Re: Mr. Mack saves Canada
SAT, 9/11/04, 10:05 a.m. - In Response To: Mr. Mack saves Canada (Derek)
It was a great time!
I really like Toronto.
I hope to return next year if my schedule allows.
Mr. Mack, it was super cool (well, alot cooler then all
the people wearing star trek costumes) that you could be at the Canadian
Expo. You were definitely the highlight of the show. You're also the most
polite and caring for his fans artist that I've ever met. I work with commercial
photographers and they consider themselves the center of the universe.
Finally, your work is a great inspiration to and influence to the work
that I do.
ps. When you weren't at the convention what were you doing when staying
Hey good job! Cool site! *NT*

Re: Thank you David!
SAT, 9/11/04, 10:09 a.m. - In Response To: Thank you David! (who cares?)
Great to meet you in Toronto. I had a blast at the con!
Thanks for all the kind words here, and all the great feedback and
book reviews on the Bendis board!
thanks a lot for coming to the con in T.O....you were definitely
the highlight of my weekend there...
i was kind of nervous when i came to your table, so i'm sorry if
i seemed like a jerk and/or idiot...
thanks again for the great deal you gave me on the Kabuki books and prints... i can't wait to read all of them.... i'll let you know what i thought about them... and thank you for the DD sketch... i was speechless
when i got it...
all 6 prints and the sketch are going to be framed and hang up very
nicely on my room's wall...
so, thanks again for coming, i was very glad to have finally met
you, and i hope i'm going to see you again at cons in the future...
Re: does this usually happen?
WED, 9/15/04, 9:51 p.m. - In Response To: does this usually happen?
i think i've heard this from a few readers in the past.
recently out of no where, a chunk of pages just fell right out of my masks
of noh. i never crease the hell out of the pages when i read comics. it
i'm a bit sad but it gives me a good excuse to be at David's table
instead of attempting to make conversation.
You should be able to exchange it at your comic shop for a new one.
And the comic shop can get the faulty copy replaced from the source with
no loss to them.
If that doesn't work, I will be happy to replace it with a new one myself.
It will give you a great excuse to exhange it for a new one from me
in person at my table for free. But you never need an excuse to hang out
at my table. You are always welcome!
You can make conversation or just hang out there for any reason without
feeling any pressure to make conversation.
It is always a delight to see you
PS. David Thornton, thanks for the quick reply to this! And thanks for all the updates and info on the board!
