I fell in love with David Mack's Kabuki the moment I first read a book owned by a classmate when I was in the middle of an all-nighter for an architectural plate back in college. My then-boyfriend then bought me a Kabuki book after I drooled after it in Robinson's Place and he got tired of me ranting about how I couldn't afford it.
So there, Kabuki: Images. The first Kabuki book I ever had.
Then last Oktoberfest in San Pablo, I found little books of Circle of Blood in Gerry's stash where he's selling old comics he scrounged off booksale and such. He's so cool! He let me have 'em at a discount! Whee!
Then Patrick Maliksi sold me two more, Kabuki: Metamosphosis (where my first book is actually its first part) and Masks of the Noh. I rarely ever find these books so I grabbed the chance. And Patrick turned out to be nice, showing up in Greenhills Starbucks with a pink Hello Kitty backpack. He mentioned that there are rumors of Fully Booked inviting David Mack to come to Manila.
I plan to dress up like Tigerlily did in Masks of the Noh when I ask for his autograph. Black super-shirt, jeans, black boots and her mask. Wheeee!
I wish I know when he's coming so I could prepare for it :D
And yes, my Christmas wishlist would be all Kabuki books by David Mack that I don't have yet, including the compiled Circle of Blood :D
