Language has become pre-recorded sequence. Practiced in its one-sided state, it conditions the mind to be as narrow as the language meant to represent it.

Fist Full of Comics Interviews David Mack
Thanks to Victor Cantu of for reporting that an audio interview with David Mack, which was conducted during Wizard World Chicago, is available.

David Mack Meets 2Na of Jurassic 5
From David Mack:
My friend Ean has been staying at my place and we went to the concert tonight and it was great.

We were right at the front and I got my exercise. It was very inspiring and I was composing Kabuki panels in my head to the music.

Ean and I bought the new CD and the group was signing it for us right when something funny happened.

A hardcore J-5 fan with a Charlie the Tuna shirt that had already been previously signed by 2Na at several other concerts, goes "Holy sh*t, it’s David Mack."

Right as 2Na was signing my CD.

2Na was about to sign his shirt, but the guy was a little drunk and would not be stopped. He was like, "No sh*t, 2Na, for real, this is the David Mack that does the Kabuki comic."

This guy had met me at a convention over ten years ago. The guy really gave me a killer introduction completely by accident.

Then 2Na said, "You do Kabuki? Really?" and he said he reads Kabuki and that he buys them at Golden Apple in LA.

He said he wanted to do comics and that he was a painter and that it would be cool if we did something together.

He said he was serious and I suggested it would be cool to do some kind of hip-hop comics art tie-in.

He was very cool and I know he used to be into graffiti. I’m looking forward to seeing his art.

The entire group was personable and positive and the show was very, very cool.

Fan Email and Silent Auction Photos
Thanks to Derrick Christie for sharing the following photos and email about meeting David Mack during Wizard World Philadelphia 2006:
This summer I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Mack in Philadelphia during the Wizard World convention. As a Special Education teacher (and comic fan) I'd volunteered as the event's ASL interperter and in doing so chatted with the very approachable and down to earth Mack a couple of times during the three-day event. Mack mentioned his mom was a teacher and seemed pleased to hear of how I had referred students (and some fellow teachers) to his work and had used some of his (and his buddy Andy Lee's) art in my own classroom from time to time as teaching tools. Mack gave me your site's card and asked for an email mentioning that Kabuki showed up in my classroom. Mack also signed a couple prints as well as several "Reflections" for me and for my fiancée. (As my bride to be is Korean-American, I referenced the half-Korean doctor from Kabuki's 'unique' stay in the hospital before the latest Metamorphosis run and received a knowing smile from Mack after I'd dragged her along on day 3 the meet the patient and affable Mr.'s Mack and Lee, respectively.)

I told Mack that (with his kind permission, of course) I would offer one of the signed prints - a cool Daredevil with angel wings - would be a coveted silent auction item at a camp for kids with muscular dystrophy where I volunteer every summer as well (comic conventions, special kids' camps, reading comics - school teachers have summers off, right?). As proof of this, attatched are a couple of shots of our camp's prized 'casino night' where the kids dump their 'winnings' into chances in a silent auction. As Daredevil is, of course, a superhero with a disability, some of the kids in the 'know' (no pun/homonym intented) regarding Mack's work were quite keen on obtaining the framed print, but its lucky winner - a startlingly informed comic collector and Mack fan - was over the moon to learn that it was signed by Mr. Mack himself. That kid had a very good way of summing up his and the rest of our gratitude in having some of Mack's signed work in hand, and I quote, "No way! Nuh-uh! Thanks, Mr. Mack!"

Thanks indeed!
