In stores the week of May 1st.
The Concept: A woman whose face is horribly scarred finds herself in an institution for "defective" government agents. She (Kabuki) is interrogated to find out if she is hiding something to do with the nature of her scars, or if she is simply crazy. Isolated and psychologically tormented, her only comfort is found in a mystery friend who sends handwritten messages that are folded into origami animals. Or is it just another trick?

Fourth in the series. Kabuki is held captive at Control Corps, an institution for rogue agents. Control Corps prepares agents for new lives and new jobs.But first, they want information from Kabuki. She refuses to cooperate and is kept in isolation.She receives notes, on animal origami, through the ventilation system, from Akemi, another woman from the institution. Kabuki is made aware - by the soon to be brand new Kabuki - that the other Noh operatives are coming for her.This is the first volume that mentions media manipulation of the masses - an underlying theme inthe amazing 7th volume.The illustrations are beautiful - a mix of previously used black and white panels,full color ink pages and water colors. Highly recommended 4.5/5 stars.
