UK Convention Appearance Canceled
Due to his commitments to Kabuki, David Mack has regretfully announced that he will not be able to attend the Bristol Con this year, however, he is looking forward to attending the show next year.


Possible Nod to Kabuki in Movie
Thanks to Lauren Muney for reporting that a possible nod to Kabuki may have been included roughly three-quarters of the way through the film The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

On Vogelsphere, Ford, Zaphod and Arthur are waiting in line to fill out paperwork to free Trillian when they spot a Japanese woman with coiffed hair who is wearing a kimono. One of the characters then states: "I loved Kabuki" or "I live kabuki."

"It was a throwaway line, barely discernable," Lauren explained. "My paramour asked me, 'Could the character have been saying, "I loved kabuki" (ie: the Japanese theatre)?' I would maintain that the line was said as an homage to Mack and as a joke for all the geeks in the audience."

If anyone has any more information or insights about the scene, please let me know.


Bendis & Mack Mentioned at 4ColorReview.com
Below are excerpts from 4ColorReview.com:
Brian Bendis was there too, but as I donít read any of his stuff, I never chatted with him. He was mobbed pretty much constantly though, and having he and Ellis at the same show was a great piece of work because theyíre both obviously wildly popular. Kudos to the organizers for getting two of the biggest name guys going on the same bill. (Page 3)

Thatís all I can think of off the top of my head guest wise. There were some other great people there - David Mack, Tom Grummett, Kaare Andrews, Adi Granov, Phil Jiminez, Dave Sim, Gerhard, Dave Ross, Samm Barnes, the list goes on...but I only had time to talk to so many of them. (Page 4)
