A New Mask from the Mack-Daddy
David Mackís Kabuki is sexy. Itís a comic with style, laced with violence, high-tech weaponry, conflicting organizations, and Japanese history. It is unique. And it has evolved from black and white inked books first published by Caliber Comics into full-color storylines now available in trade paperbacks.
With its home at the big "I," David Mackís Kabuki mythology sheds a new skin with the introduction of the six-issue bi-monthly mini-series Kabuki: The Alchemy. We are re-introduced to the beautiful assassin, who is a product of rape, and horribly scarred at childhood. Her tale is a tragedy, as the poor woman did not have the benefit of a mother. She was raised by an eccentric General, and it was her own half-brother who savaged both her face and psyche.
Terror and cruelty, however, did not make Kabuki a broken doll. A life of pain shaped her into a killing machine. And with The Alchemy, readers will see what there is to fear behind the mask! This series also includes a special chronology of the evolution of Kabukiís early beginnings.
