David W. Mack (born 1972) is an American comic book artist and writer, best known for his creator-owned series Kabuki and for co-creating with Joe Quesada the deaf Marvel Comics superhero Echo. Mack is known for his unique painted and collage-like work.

Early life[edit]

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.[1] 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.[2][3] He graduated in 1995 with a BFA in graphic design.[4]

Career[edit]
