The curtains are opening, rising with the sun. My consciousness widens to take in this drama. It has been well-rehersed and finely-tuned with age. Watch it with me.

David Mack Plug & Photo in Pittsburgh Comicon Article
The convention offered us plenty of time to chat with guests, shop, and just plain hang out with friends. The guest list was a good one again this year. Such luminaries as Tom Mandrake, David Mack, Daryl Banks, Brian K. Glass, Scott McDaniel, Billy Tucci, and Marc Wolfe signed autographs, did sketches, and just plain spent time chatting.

Pop Matters Reviews Electric Ant #1 gave Philip K. Dick's Electric Ant #1 a score of 9 out of 10.

David Mack Mentioned in Chuck Plahniuk Interview
From This Week in New York:
twi-ny: In your introduction to David Mack's KABUKI: THE ALCHEMY, you write, “Art is the lie that tells the truth better than the truth. . . . [David Mack builds] a metaphor that allows people to see and explore their own experience.” The same can be said for your writing, which is also very visual and cinematic. Do you have any interest in perhaps collaborating with an artist such as David Mack, or writing a graphic novel or comic book? Your website features Kissgzs’s adaptations of INVISIBLE MONSTERS and LULLABY; might there be more of those in the future?

CP: Frankly, I won't rule out anything except suicide.

David Mack Mentioned in Two Comic Reviews
From on Fractured Fables #1:
[Christian] Ward's art is beautiful too, reminding me in some ways of David Mack's painted art in "Kabuki." It's lush and colorful, and the page of the beanstalk growing through the stack of mattresses is just amazing. It's the other high point of the comic, and worth a big thumbs up.
From on Shuddertown #2:
[Adam] Green's art is growing on me even more, and I love his David Mack-esque cover.
