Speaking of hardcovers David, any chances of KABUKI having oversized collections thanks to MARVEL/ICON as Bendis! and Oeming! have with the original POWERS series*?
Theoretical examples: KABUKI VOL. 1 HC collecting Circle of Blood and Dreams, KABUKI VOL. 2 HC collecting Skin Deep and Metamorphosis, and finally KABUKI VOL. 3 HC continuing the storyline and the world of KABUKI with Masks of the Noh and Scarab.
On a serendipitous level, we would have three volumes each of POWERS and KABUKI in their original series, giving even more credence to MOB.
*I'm referring to the following gem of a collection, arriving June 8th:
