Both in stores the week of April 17th.
The Concept: She is the bastard child of a head Noh Assassin and a Geisha - her mother murdered and her face horribly scarred by a dishonored half-brother. She wears the mask of a Kabuki to hide the scars, both internal and external, from the world.
This Issue: Kabuki:Scarab picks up right where Kabuki: Metamorphosis left off and answers all the mysteries left dangling from that series. And Scarab is still a self-contained story, so even new readers can start with it. More than the original issues, this handsome 256 page archival hardcover includes a gallery of covers (including the Quesada variant), new pin ups, sketches and character designs, embossed cover, a brand new dust jacket painting by David Mack, and an insightful introduction by Paul Pope. A trade paperback edition will not be offered before October 2002!
