Just wanted to say thanks to ISR and Seth for spotlighting Kabuki: The Alchemy during episode 24.

Hope you don't mind, but I gave the show a plug on my site:

Hey weirdos!

Just wanted to thank you guys again for letting me be on the show and for plugging our book. That was a lot of fun.

And just so everyone knows... that Nightfisher book arrived the day after this interview. So... let no one say that ol' Charlito & Mr. Phil aren't good to their word!

Seriously, though, thanks for the book. It was a great read!

You guys rock.

Really excellent episode, a considered analysis of a truly ground-breaking work.
Listening to y'all talk, I was struck by the thematic and formal similarities between the ways that Mack's Kabuki has developed and the evolution of Sim's work in Cerebus. Both started as relatively progressive works for their times, but were limited by concessions to genre conventions and the relative rawness of the respective creators' craft. Over time, as Sim and Mack became bolder, braver and more skilled, both works refused to capitulate to genre, demonstrated truly amazing experiments in story-telling and layout, and pushed the boundaries of form and narrative technique. Ultimately, both creators wrote themselves into their narratives and had really important conversations with their most well-known creations. And, while it seems that unlikely that Sim will ever produce anything that will overshadow his 300 issue epic; Mack's best work is likely still to come. I'm really excited to see what a creator so brilliant and so (relatively) young will produce at his peak.

Again fantastic episode, they just continue to get better and better. Maybe we'll eventually see Mr. Phil's all Cages, all pretentious episode thus far only bespoke in myth and legend?? : )

Adios and happy 5 May 06.

Just want to thank you guys for making me buy yet more comics. I haven't read Kabuki in years but after the show it made me want to hunt down the issues. I got most of the alchemy during FCBD sales over the weekend. I am almost there. Another great show!

Sorry...Blame it on Mr. Mack it's alllllll his fault, curse him.

And I felt stupid cuz it took me like 11 hours to figure out FCBD was FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!

Hope you all got some goodies.
