Kabuki, Volume 5: Metamorphosisby David Mack
She is the bastard child of head Noh assassin and a Giesha - her mother murdered and she horribly scarred by a dishonored half-brother. She wears the mask of a Kabuki to hide the scars both internal and external from the world. Volume V: Skin Deep - A woman whose face is horribly scarred finds herself in an institution for 'defective' government agents. While there, she is interrogated to find out if she is hiding something or if she is simply crazy. Isolated and psychologically tormented, Kabuki's only friend is found in a mystery woman who sends her handwritten notes folded into origami animals. Can Kabuki escape her captors before her former comrades track her down to silence her? A very personal metaphorical tale of self actualization told in a diverse array of art mediums, breath taking paintings, and poetic first person narrative layered in subtext and Japanese culture. Uncover the nature of identity, quantum physics, time and the meaning of life!
