Kabuki: The Alchemy #7 Update & DVD Release Date
From David Mack:
Hey Shwicaz and friends,

I just recieved and approved the proofs from the printer today. So Marvel says this month for sure.

Sorry it is late. After I finished #6 I did a bunch of Marvel work before I started on #7. Hence, the Ms. Marvel covers, White Tiger covers, Wolverine [Road of Bones and Lifeblood] covers to the novels from Pocket books, and upcoming Marvel writing projects.

It is a fine balance between the Kabuki and the mainstream Marvel work. Thanks for the goodwill and understanding.

Also, I put together the recent Reflections pre #7 and had to fly out for a few film meetings, and filmed the entire documentary DVD of my work, The Alchemy of Art, that will be offered in the Previews catalogue for items shipping in December.

Sometimes it is a juggling act, but I'll always get the books out the way I want them one way or another.

I'm glad you guys are still reading it. I wanted this series to be my best yet, and at first it seemed like a tall order because I liked Metamorphosis, but I'm really finding a new place in this story that I couldn't have figured beforehand.

A lot of you have letters in the new #7 issue.
