A rational person will not expect the world to conform around their ideas. They understand that they must conform to the conventions of the rational world. Therefore, all important breakthroughs are made by irrational people.

Searching for a Portland Kabuki Fan
From David Mack:
There was a wonderful woman that I met at the Portland Comicon who had an incredible Kabuki Noh dragon tattoo. I mean - super accurate to the comic. I asked her if I could take photos of it, and she let me take several amazing shots of it.

I ended up collaging some of the photos of the tattoo on her back into some of the art of this issue.

She had given me her name and info, but I can't find it.

I'd like to give acknowledgment and thanks to her in the next issue since I included the photo of her beautiful tattoo. I'll include her name in the thank you section of an upcoming issue and credit her if she wants.

Factory Fire Delays Indymates Box Set
According to Diamond Select Toys representative DSTChuck, the Indymates box sets were delayed due to a small fire at the factory, however, the sets have been shipped from Hong Kong.

Examining the Buying Habits of Readers
After stating that he noticed Kabuki: The Alchemy #5 in Marvel's June Previews catalog while in Golden Apple Comics, David Mack requested that fans pre-order the issue and asked:
Do most readers do this? Pick up the Marvel Previews and order from it? Actual readers. Or do you just mention what books you want, and only the retailers look at the Marvel Previews?

I'm conducting a survey for Social Studies class.

Do most of you here have a pull list with your store, or do you just walk in and impulse buy stuff? Or both?

Anyway, that Kabuki issue is going to rock. So you should read it.
