Books reviews
I'll be honest, I had to purchase this graphic novel for a Social Psychology course and I usually end up hating required texts, yet this novel was absolutely stunning. The artwork is pristine and the story line is riveting, engaging and unique. I honestly came away from this novel with a few new perspectives on life. I know that sounds corny but it is true. My take away: if you like graphic novels, if you're interested in learning unique perspectives on identity, then buy this novel. It is well worth the price-tag in my opinion.
I loved the artwork, the originality of it all. As a fan of the Kabuki Series from the beginning, I gotta say as much as I liked the story and art - I feel this was a terrible way to end the Kabuki story.

This is a deep and personal tale about the author's past and experiences and thoughts and philosophies. Though Kabuki all along has been a representation of Mack's inner being - this last book THE ALCHEMY was more all about MACK and less about the character of KABUKI - yeah I know you can say they are one in the same - but it is so heavy handed that it losses the feel and there's a disconnect from the rest of the series.

Like I said, I enjoyed it - but just thought it seemed like a limp ending and would of been better if Mack had done a different book instead of blending KABUKI and ALL of his thoughts and whatnot. It should have been called KABUKI: THE DAVID MACK STORY instead of KABUKI: THE ALCHEMY.

As a fan of his work I recommend it though!
I have searched years to find what this book was called again. This takes you on a life changing journey, a metamorphasis, if you will, accompanied with beautiful artwork and mixed media. Especially for those soul searching, or never fit in the crowd, highle reccommend!
If David Mack drew it, you know it is going to be a beautiful exciting treasure hunt for your eyes. If David Mack wrote it, you know it is going to be a meaningful, heartfelt expose on loss and pain and being human.

He is a wonderful artist and writer and can create uniquely amazing beauty.
Beautiful art with
A beautiful ending to an amazing tale.
David Mack is awesome and inspirational as always. The mixed media drawings are sooo beautiful and the storytelling is wonderful.
I have the first 6 books of the series and enjoyed them so it was easy for me to buy the 7th. What a waste! The artwork is there; but a story isn't. This is just a long, very long, self-indulgent exploration of character and development that could have been fully rendered in 5 to 10 pages, instead of the 200+ it was given. Sorry.
