Dark Horse is collecting David Mack's Kabuki in a paperback omnibus edition, retailing for just $29.99 in December. That's ten dollar's cheaper than the library edition hardcovers Dark Horse released back in 2015, and just in time for Kabuki's 25th-anniversary. In addition, Dark Horse says the book will contain "new art and text," though it's unclear if this is new to the original volumes collected here — Circle of Blood and Dreams — or new since the 2015 releases. Both volumes weigh in at 400 pages.
