Book Review: Kabuki: The Alchemy

Kabuki: The Alchemy - 01


This is an unusual graphic novel. There are no panels, not in the traditional way. Each page is a canvas. There's a textural feel to each page with all the collages and watercolour art. I like the scrapbook-style presentation but it's not easy to read in this art form.

The story is of Kabuki reflecting on her new life. There's also not a plot in a traditional sense. It's first person narrative from Kabuki with her endless stream of thoughts and imagination. I've not read any of the earlier series so this book is a little bit difficult for me to resonate with. Probably I'll need a reread.

At the end, you have David Mack's concluding thoughts and the fan letters he received.
