David Mack Talks Comics on Coast to Coast AM
From David Mack:
My third time on the show, but this one was just a little update.

Mentioned [Brian Michael Bendis's] name a couple times, our DD project, and was able to mention, Klaus, Bill S., & Alex. Talked about Electric Ant from Marvel.

Joe Q. as a great EIC at Marvel & commented on his questions about Jim Lee & Geoff Johns at DC and why I think they are grand.

The host was nice enough to plug Kabuki and The Shy Creatures.

Was very cool. I've listened to the show since 97 so It's always a buzz to be on the show live.

Next: Oprah

David Mack later noted:
The first time I was on, I discussed Kabuki & my children's book, The Shy Creatures. The second time was discussing adapting Philip K. Dick for Electric Ant.

I enjoy the occasional alien talk, but mostly it seems the guests are authors and discuss the subjects of their books. Michio Kaku is a frequent guest discussing physics. Often authors about books of some kind of History, or inventions, or social phenomenal, or science, etc.

Mr. Mack also added:
Ian is great. He is the host who has interviewed me all 3 times. And he always does weekends. Every Saturday and Sunday with the occasional fill in during the week.

He hosts some really interesting show. One of my faves was the fellow who was sure he solved the mystery to D.B. Cooper. And we'd e-mail back and forth during the commercial breaks about how far out and cool it was.

Podcast Host Erroneously States David Mack is Dead
During episode episode 789 of Comic Geek Speak, a very tired Jamie D. mistakenly stated that David Mack had passed away, causing the other hosts to exclaim with shock and confusion (1h:14m:08s to 1h:15m:00s), however, everyone realized the error and correctly assigned credit to an upcoming Supergirl cover to the late Michael Turner. Also, to poke fun at their fellow host, the other hosts jokingly held a moment of silence for Mr. Mack near the end of the episode (1h:31m:55s).

Kabuki Fan Artwork & David Mack's Reaction
After viewing Redskullrudd's Kabuki commissions gallery (registration required), David Mack replied:
These are great!

My favorites are the Christ Steven's Kabuki and both of the Siamese images! Fantastic collection!

I'm always fascinated to see other artist's take on the characters. Especially when they are this good!

I've seen a super Josh Middleton Kabuki, and an amazing Travis Charest Snapdragon (I have these somewhere), and others from some of the most talented artists. Love these.
