Early life

Mack graduated from Ludlow High School in 1990, where he had written and acted in many of the school theatre productions. He gave the commencement address there in 2003.[2] Mack did not attend a specialized art school, but earned scholarships to Northern Kentucky University for five years, a four-year scholarship based on his portfolio of art works, and in his fifth year the Dean's Scholarship for academics.[3][4] He graduated in 1995 with a BFA in graphic design.[5]


Mack began publishing Kabuki in 1994 with Caliber Press, and later moved the series to Image Comics. It is now released through Marvel Comics' imprint Icon Comics. He completed the first book, Kabuki: Circle of Blood, while still in college. Mack has also worked on such Marvel Comics publications as Daredevil, Alias, New Avengers, and White Tiger.

He was nominated for the 2020 Eisner Award in the categories of Best Painter/Digital Artist, and Best Cover Artist.[6]
