Paddy whacks a Mack.

I've never been a fan of David Mack's: I saw examples of his KABUKI art and thought, meh, way too STRAY TOASTERS. I also had something of a prejudice that made me think that Kabuki was one of those titles, like THE SANDMAN or STRANGERS IN PARADISE, which was ultimately a girl's comic. Hey - I never said I was logical. But I prefer this: Mack uses a more conventional, non-Sienkiewicz-aping style on the next issue of NEW AVENGERS. Have a look: it's like a smoother Alex Maleev. Plus there's a probable SECRET INVASION spoiler there, too (looks like there's a Skrull version of Daredevil knocking about).

*Update* accusations of swiping continue to dog Mack. Naughty boy.
