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!

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.
