(W/A) David Mack Trade paperback The Concept: Japan. A horribly scarred woman has a vision of the afterlife in which she is visited by her dead mother, and then returns to life with a new sense of purpose. A personal tale of love, duty, and self discovery, elegantly told through the masks and metaphors of the Japanese Ghost Story. The long-awaited second volume in David Mack's critically acclaimed series. This Collection: Now back in print! Collecting four fully painted Kabuki stories (including a completely new story!) in a brand new and improved prestige edition with extra pages! Much more than the previous out-of-print 48-page Dreams paperback, this 128-page volume presents all of the very first-painted Kabuki books (Kabuki Color Special & Kabuki: Dreams of the Dead), but also the fully painted Kabuki #1/2, and an entire Brand New Kabuki story written and painted by David Mack, just for this volume! Also included in Kabuki for the first time ever, a completely autobiographical comic book story, written and drawn by David Mack, an in-depth Kabuki Spotlight and David Mack interview from France's Ekllipse Magazine, a gallery of original covers, an introduction by Brian Michael Bendis, and brand new afterword by David Mack, a brand new front and back cover (and lots of new art pages), and printed on new and improved, thicker high grade, archival paper. Having been out of print for some time, fans are looking for these early painted Kabuki stories and this book delivers with loads of extras and a brand new painted story!
