25 years in July, comics creator David Mack released Kabuki to comic stores readers, giving a new escape visually and creatively through his unique style of storytelling. It would continue with critical acclaim, spanning multiple series and some spinoffs. The Kabuki series will be reprinted in a 400-page Dark Horse published Omnibus collection. Its first volume is set for this coming December.
Kabuki is the long running multi-series spanning of a young woman, code name “Kabuki”, who struggles with her identity in a near-future Japan. Working as an operative for a clandestine government agency known as “The Noh,” Kabuki neutralizes dangerous individuals before they become national-level threats, but when the agency she works for is compromised, Kabuki’s personal quest sends her down a difficult path to her own self-discovery, that may bring her in direct conflict with the powers she formerly served.

One thought on “David Mack’s Kabuki turns 25 this year, with a new Omnibus edition”
Mack: I think it’s kind of like that idea you say where both realities exist simultaneously, right? Because you can feel that way and you can know the truth one minute, and then all of a sudden something can surprise you and someone that you least expect can explain to you what ripple effect you had in their world and their actions which was very important to them and very important to their life. And I imagine as a parent, it might be a similar thing. You might have to say something over and over and over and then all of a sudden I bet Ash will surprise you about something you have ingrained into him.
