When I was learning English, I read a lot of children’s books. One was about a girl falling into a rabbit hole and talking to people who were cards and chess pieces. Then there was that Greek surgeon: Dr. Zeus. -- Kabuki: Metamorphosis #2

David Mack Mentioned in CAPE Review
From The-Trades.com:
I have always wanted to read Kabuki, David Mack's epic, but have never been able to track down all the issues of any one arc real easily. I hope to get my hands on the trade paperback versions soon. But I enjoyed his work on Daredevil, especially the Echo character he created during Brian Bendis' run. I was glad to finally meet David and spend a few minutes chatting about his work. I love how in this industry folks find the smallest little bit of minutiae and run with it. It proves that you can't overlook anything in a comic. In one of his Kabuki issues there's a character reading a book called The Shy Creatures. David went a step further and actually produced that book as a children's book! It's in some ways styled a bit after Dr. Seuss, but that's certainly not a bad thing, but it's very much in line with David's phenomenal design sense. I may even give it a read myself--the Dr. Seuss classics are still my favorites, and if The Shy Creatures is even slightly in that vein it will be enjoyable, even at my age.

Wizard #141 (June 2003)
The Bendis Bunch (466 kb) by Michael Avon Oeming
Here's the story of a lovely lady, er, writer, featuring art by his pal Oeming who dropped Bendis into the center square normally occupied by Alice The Maid from "The Brady Bunch." Now, if the Powers artist had to compare the two, he is quick to point out that "they both look good in a dress." And that's much more than a hunch.
