Well, I'm probably not as special as you think. I like putting words together...like a puzzle.

Upcoming Projects Discussed at Wizard World Chicago
From Newsarama.com:
Writer/artist David Mack said he's concentrating on writing for awhile now that the Alchemy volume of Kabuki is finished up.

"Doing Kabuki is really immersive. Once I finish a series, I generally do some other projects before I come back and do more Kabuki. So I'm focusing on some writing projects right now. Writing's so much quicker for me. I can do a few more things before I jump into a Kabuki thing where I'm at capacity doing both the writing and art," he said.

Mack said he just finished writing "a couple things at Marvel" that haven't been announced. One of them will involve Brian Michael Bendis. "I'm so psyched about it. That's what I've been working on since I finished Alchemy," he said.

While he will eventually do the art for another Marvel project, it's just writing for now, and "eventually more Kabuki."

Mack said the Daredevil: End of Days comic that Mack co-wrote with Bendis is "coming along." The mini-series is being drawn by Klaus Janson and inked by Bill Sienkiewicz with covers by Alex Maleev. "I think we've got the first issue worth of artwork, and it looks terrific."

Alchemy will come out in a hardcover edition later this summer. "It's got a really cool introduction by Chuck Palahniuk, the author of Fight Club and other novels. I asked him to write a little intro, and he wrote a really long one. It's almost like a cool short story or something. And I'm trying to put some other bonuses in and do a nice design for it," he said.

Mack is also hoping to do more children's stories like his Shy Creatures book. "It's doing really well. I'm working on another children's book right now. I'm doing a mixed-media approach. It's very different with paintings and collage. I'll do some more brush and ink drawing ones, but I want to try something a little different for this next one," Mack said.

Kabuki Examined in San Diego Comic-Con Panel

12:30 to 2:00 pm - Comics Arts Conference Session #7: Visual Language: Neil Cohn (Tufts University) explores the visual language underlying the "manga style," how it works and how it differs from the visual languages in comics developed in other cultures. Robert O'Nale Jr. (Henderson State University) uses David Mack's Kabuki to illustrate how gestalt can be an important avenue for analyzing design and meaning in comics. Alec Hosterman (Indiana University South Bend) demonstrates the dominance of hyper-reality in comic art and explains how it can be utilized for further study of the art form. Room 30AB
