To kick off NYCC 2014 Dark Horse today announced the first volume collecting the entire critically acclaimed Kabuki series in large oversize library editions by creator David Mack (Reflections, Dream Logic, Shy Creatures). Boasting a whopping 400 pages at $39.99, Kabuki Library Volume 1 collects the first two original Kabuki volumes: Circle of Blood and Dreams. Both of which were the foundations of the series created by Mack, making it very accessible for new readers.

The collection will have tons of extras which include the Kabuki drawings from Brian Michael Bendis, introductions by Jim Steranko and Bendis, and more. Kabuki Library Volume 1 is on sale July 8, 2015. In an interview David Mack looked back on the beginnings of the book saying, “The very first “Kabuki” volume I did as a student in college as my senior thesis in literature. It’s me as a 20-year-old doing the best version of a comic book that I could at that time.”

Look for more this week as NYCC is currently underway.
