Kabuki is a series about transformation. Yes, it has beautiful art. Yes, it has great writing. And while the central theme of the narrative is transformation, what I found even more powerful is the way the art of the stories transforms from collection to collection, seeming to mirror the character’s evolution.

I have met David Mack a couple times at Comicon, and I’ve been meaning to ask him if he always intended from the beginning for the story to be about transformation and to move from standard
This volume is entirely devoted to Kabuki's fellow assassin Scarab. We learn about how she grew up and got recruited into the assassin business. David Mack doesn't do the artwork this time around, but Rick Mays' cartoonish black and white anime style works. The story is pretty good and the writing is rather witty at times. David Mack doesn't let his philosophizing bog down the plot too much. I do have a couple complaints, though. First, Mack seems to have forgotten that his story is supposed to ...more

Beautifully drawn and a rich and indulgent story.
This arc follows a separate agent, and we get more insight on what it means to be part of the Noh. The intricacy of the story is breathtaking. I have to admit that I was heartbroken to learn that Rick Mays would be illustrating, but his style lends a good different feel that the storyline required.

Not as good as the core Kabuki series the tale of Scarab still manages to come across well despite the lack of David Mack's own, always breathtaking art.
I tore through this one. It's different from the others, but it fits in just the same. I love the art of Rick Mays, and the story is great as well.
Definitely answers a lot of questions from the previous book. Great story with a great ending. Looking forward to the next and final book.
I liked this one than the other ones in the series. I think the clarity of the art is a plus. Also, the story seems tighter.
A shame that the art isn't also done by David Mack, as his work is breathtaking, but still a great book.
Different artist, so not so gorgeous but it has more humor and plot so perhaps it all balances out.
probably one of my favorite graphic novels ever
