The story that started it all! The CIRCLE OF BLOOD Trade collects all six issues of the first Kabuki series plus the hard to find prequel one-shot into nearly 300 pages! This edition includes new pages of art and in-depth notes and story analysis about the subtext of the story, plus an introduction by comics legend Jim Steranko.

CIRCLE OF BLOOD explores the origins of the government operative known as Kabuki. Set against a backdrop of Japan's near future, the story explores the relationship between Japan's government and organized crime on a truly epic scale!

Each issue of this series ranked #1 of its month and category in the Comic Shop News Top Ten List. This is the book that loyal Kabuki readers will want and need, and it's the book that will turn first time Kabuki readers into lifetime Kabuki readers.

From page 29 of Kabuki: Skin Deep #1: "As for the Circle of Blood trade paperbacks, there was a batch of them that got by the printer with faulty glue. Though the printer took out an ad in CBG claiming responsibility for the problem and guarenteeing to replace any copy, some of you may not have heard. Just send any bad copies to Caliber's Michigan address on the inside front cover and they will send you a new one."
· Because the replacement copies also fell apart, David Mack moved to Image Comics and reissused the trade paperback
