I practice literature as magic. All words and all works are alchemy, the great science/art of transformation.

Excerpts from David Mack's Q&A Thread
During his Q&A Thread, David Mack talked about Kabuki: The Alchemy, Kabuki: Reflections, the next Noh agent series, the Kabuki statue and more:
I'm trying to wrap Alchemy up at 8 issues at this point. There is a possibility it could go to 9 if I don't cut out a lot of scenes that I've written. It is a challenging decision. (source)

I do have a lot of sketchwork and process stages of the DD and Echo stuff. It would be fun to get it together sometime. Hopefully, they can include it if they collect the WAKE UP and ECHO story in hardcover. I am hoping to get a new issue of Reflections out, too. How many of you get the Reflections books? (source)

DeadMike - Q: Approx. how long will the Alchemy arc be? 9? 12?
A: 8 if I can cut it down. Probably 9 tops. Although I could easily do it at 10-12 if I had more time
Q: When's issue 6 coming out? I can't wait. Ya know it'd be a great way to ring in the new year (hint, hint).
A: It is solicited for February. But I've got it mostly completed now, so I'll release it early Feb. at the latest.
Q: After Alchemy what's next on tap in the Kabukiverse? Tigerlilly Agents series? If so any hints on an artist? Rick Mays? Someone else?
A: Yeah, probably the Tiger Lily story.

gelf13 on the Kabuki Statue (2005) - Q: How cool is this frickin' thing???? Seriously. How cool? (My opinion? It's WAY frickin' cool! :lol So tell us a bit about the process from your end. Did you go visit Moore's studio at 3 am and rant that he'd made the butt too big? Too small? Did you stay away and and chew your fingernails down to the quick waiting for him to send you some small little hint how awesome this would be? (I pretty much know that you would have done none of these things, but I would have! I'd have been a wreck! )
David Mack - A: I thought the butt was just great. I'm incredibly impressed with Clay's skill at the musculature and instilling a sense of weight and volume in the figure. I wasn't nervous at all. When Clay is working on something I have complete confidence in his skills. So I know it is going to be spectatular. It is always a treat to get the new updated photos from him. And I make my suggestions on each round if I have any.
Q: My wife said she wished there was a version of the statue that was less "Superhero-ish". Her favorite parts of the Kabuki story are more concerned with her as a person, as opposed to an action figure. Any plans for a more dressed down statue? (Maybe in a "You dont know me" shirt?)
A: I understand this. I had suggested this kind of statue to Clay years ago. (Even with that shirt and showing all the scars, etc.) But Clay doesn't believe that there is the same kind of market for that kind of sculpture. So he prefers to play up to what he sees as the more marketable side of the character to make it worth his time investment and his manufacturing investment in creating them. But reader/fan opinions on this kind of thing are always welcome. Continue to let me know what kind of statue, etc you'd like to see in the future. (source)
