Manga Mavericks might be a manga podcast, but that doesn’t mean we don’t enjoy comics from countries outside of japan! Be it manwha or bande dessinees, we believe that every comic in the world has the right to be loved (except for the really bad ones)! All-Comic.com is one of the few comic sites out there that shares the love for comics made around the world in equal capacity. That’s why we’re called All-Comic! Can’t get more inclusive than that! I think it’s time to start a movement. Equal rights for all comics! #EFAC! Spread the world! Share the love! Read some comics!

If you believe in that mission statement, then maybe you can help us out a bit. Now, I don’t want to go all NPR on you guys, but the site’s grown too big to be funded out of pocket, which is why we need readers like you to pitch in and help support the reviews and podcasts you want to read. Keep in mind no one on this site is actually getting paid. This is just site maintenance cost stuff. To keep the site afloat for another year, we’ll need about $800 CAD, and right now we’re about an eighth of the way there. If you enjoy reading the reviews and listening to the podcasts on this site, then we’d really appreciate if you’d head on over here to contribute whatever you can. Thanks!

As for this week’s installment of Manga Mavericks, it’s back to basics as Colton and Sid go over all the latest manga news and announcements. From speculating on the new Jump Starts debuting later this month, to running down all the manga ending in August (and man, there sure are a lot of them!), this episode is jam-packed with good discussion!

Enjoy the show, and follow us on twitter at @sniperking323 and @lumranmayasha. If there’s something you want to ask that’s too big to tweet, drop us a line in the comments below, or e-mail us at mangamavericks@gmail.com! Thanks for listening!
