On this episode of Manga Mavericks, Lum and Colton are joined by cosplayer extraordinaire Diana Soreil, as well as Kelly Quinn Chiu from the One Panel Later podcast, to discuss Satoru Noda’s Golden Kamuy! Just in time for winter, Golden Kamuy is a tale about hunting for treasure while surviving the bitter freezing wilderness, as well as constant attacks from all kinds of weirdos, criminals or both. We discuss everything we love about Noda’s master work, including how it manages to be thrilling, hilarious and educational all at the same time! Before that though, we also cover some news, as well as discuss our thoughts on the first couple chapters of two of Shonen Jump’s newest series: Zipman and Agravity Boys!

Since this is our last podcast of the year, we want to thank everyone for listening and supporting us all throughout 2019! Look forward to some huge podcasts coming within the beginning of 2020, and a new decade of Manga Mavericks!!!

About The Author Colton Solem

Colton is just your regular glasses wearing nerd residing in Saint Louis, Misery (that's a joke) who loves reading and collecting manga as a hobby and also records too many podcasts! He started off his podcasting escapades in 2013 when he created Life Lessons: The Gintama Manga Cast, which is dedicated to Gintama and its past English release of the manga. From there he became the co-host of shows such as the Manga Corner from Anime3000, Heavenly Kings, One Podcast Prevails and many more. Colton first discovered manga back in 2006 when he bought his first issue of Shonen Jump, and ever since then, his love and passion for manga took off from there! His favorite titles include One Piece, Eyeshield 21, My Hero Academia and much, much more. Oh yeah, guess he likes anime as well (but truth be told didn't know what it actually was until about 2007). Colton can be found frequenting sites such as MyAnimeList and Twitter under the handle of sniperking323.
