Starting very soon this month.
A new page each and everyday! 2 pages a day in the event of the double page spread.
Tim Daniel from this board will be designing and running it.
Looks like we are starting the daily Kabuki from the very beginning and going on from there.

Let me know if you have any questions, advice, suggestions, or anything else!

Here It Is!! Big Powers And Kabuki News!!!
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Newsarama.com and the comic book creators collectively known as “MOB” – David Mack, Mike Avon Oeming and Brian Michael Bendis – are pleased to jointly announce that Bendis and Oeming’s Eisner Award-winning creator-owned series Powers, and Mack’s creator-owned KABUKI, will both be reprinted in their entirety as daily, serial, FREE comic book strips on Newsarama.com. POWERS will debut Monday, July 24th, KABUKI in the following weeks.



KABUKI debuted in 1994 at Caliber Press, was later published at Image Comics, and is currently published at Marvel’s ICON imprint. Earning Mack multiple award nominations over the years – including an Eisner nomination for Best Painter – KABUKI is known for its innovative storytelling, painting techniques, and page design. Published in seven different languages, over a million copies of KABUKI comic books, trade paperbacks, and hardcover editions are in print in the U.S. alone.



Debuting as a monthly Image series in 2000 and winner of the 2001 Eisner for Best New Series, the bestselling POWERS is also currently published by ICON. Nine trade paperback editions of the series along with a Powers: Scriptbook are available for sale at comic book shops and bookstores, and for order through online retailers.



Powers tells the story of two detectives - Christian Walker and Deena Pilgram - as they investigate superhero related murders.



Starting with Volume 1, page 1, each weekday a new POWERS DAILY page will appear at http://comics.newsarama.com/powers, and then stored in an easily accessible archive so fans can read the released pages as often as they like, or so new fans can start at the beginning of the groundbreaking series at any time.



"Powers has been around for six or seven years now and we've been blessed with great success,” said co-creator Mike Oeming. “There are enough issues and pages to do this daily indefinitely. With the comic and the power of the Internet at our hands, we are ready to share Powers with the world.”



“We’re honored Mike Oeming, Brian Bendis, and David Mack chose Newsarama to become the home of POWERS and KABUKI on the ‘net,” said Newsarama’s Matt Brady. “We’re not only fans of both series ourselves and excited to offer them to our readers, but we think this is an innovative new format that gives readers the opportunity to try and enjoy new comics they might have previously overlooked, and gives creators new ways to promote sales of their titles.



“We think “MOB” have hit on something special here, and we expect that in the coming weeks and months we’ll be offering additional titles in similar formats, so we’ve created comics.newsarama.com for that reason.”



“We wanted to take Powers to Newsarama because we have a good relationship with them and they are clearly the premiere news website for comics,” added Oeming. “It’s a good place to be and we know they can help get the word out about Powers Daily to both comics and mainstream media."



POWERS DAILY Vol. 1, page 1 will premiere Monday, July 24th at http://comics.newsarama.com/powers and will be updated with a free new page every weekday, KABUKI DAILY will soon follow. For more information about POWERS and KABUKI DAILY, email Newsarama at comics@newsarama.com.

To any and all interested parties, I might share a preview link with you, if you'd like to offer some specific feedback! Let me know if you're interested, and I will let you know what questions I have in mind.

MACK! - thanks for the mention.

Check this out - posted today on the Newsarama POWERS discussion board:

"The original article announcing this strip also mentioned that it would be soon followed by Kabuki. Inspired by that, and since I'd always planned to buy it anyway someday, I finally went and bought the first trade last week.

And loved it."

HA!

Our business model - "give it away and people will buy it!"
