Perhaps creating keeps you young. There is no time when you are in the creating space. The more of this world’s time that you spend there, the less you age.

Now under the ICON imprint of Marvel Comics, David Mack’s Kabuki is poised to become the most talked about comic of this year! Now, in conjunction with DF, creator David Mack has prepared an exclusive preview book, not available anywhere else! Each copy features a certificate of authenticity and is sealed with a DF Holo-Foil sticker!
Full Color, 32 pages

· From David Mack (June 23, 2004):

I think DF originally planned to release this before the first issue of the new series. It has a sequence from the first issue in an earlier version that it will appear in Alchemy #1.

Since the time I sent those pages to DF, earlier this year, I have went back, and changed the order of the pages, changed the text, dropped pages, added pages, and redrew or re-arranged many pages.

So actually that preview book from DF can give you a behind the scenes insight into the evolution of the way I re-edit and re-arrange, and fine tune my work as a story.

It will have stuff that I ended up cutting from Alchemy #1, and will have other pages that (at the time) I thought were finished, but that I continued to re-work and add to.

Hope that helps answer some questions of people asking about it earlier.

It also has a very thorough interview about the move to Marvel ICON and the ALCHEMY story.

And some other stuff too, but I can't remember exactly what, as I sent it to DF some time ago.
