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.

*Fangirl squeals*

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

Wah! Hey that girl on the cover of Circle of Blood TPB looks a bit like you, no?

I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and David Mack has been up here about three times already within the past 18 months. I should mention he usually brings his girlfriend (an Asian) with him.

I second Gerry's comment. First glance at the cover and I thought you did it yourself, photomanipulating your face as Shi. Hmmm, now there's an idea....
