Manga Mavericks EP 75: Booty Bat


On this episode of Manga Mavericks, someone reached out to us to talk about the Art of Naoki Urasawa Exhibit in Los Angeles (even before we put up the previous episode!!), and that person was Aidan, otherwise known as @CoyboyBeboy on Twitter! With Urasawa being his favorite manga artist of all time, there was no way he’d miss out on this opportunity, as he joins Colton & Lum on the show to talk about the exhibit and all the cool pieces of art and expensive merchandise they had to offer, as well as recount the moment where he met the man himself. You don’t want to miss out on hearing this incredible experience! Enjoy!
