Welcome to a special preview of a podcast series available exclusively on our Patreon entitled, the Manga Mavericks Book Club! A spin off series where we select different manga series previously covered on the main Manga Mavericks podcast and discuss them even further from volume to volume! Previously, we covered the entirety of the first arc of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure with Grant (@grantthethief) from the Blade Licking Thieves podcast, but for now we’ll be taking a break from JoJo in order to read through all 28 volumes of Masami Kurumada’s Saint Seiya! A mythical, action battle series that Lum has already covered on the show previously that Colton unfortunately had to miss out on, but will now be going through all of it with his other compatriot in podcasting, Doctor, from the SSAA Network! For both Colton and Doctor, its their first time really digging into Saint Seiya and its many melodramatic, but thrilling, adrenaline pumping battles, as they discuss many of the series’ different facets, such as its use of now classic battle manga tropes, as well as some criticisms of Viz Media’s release.

This podcast is a free preview of the very first episode of this particular readthrough, with the rest of series available in the coming months *exclusively* on our Patreon! Next episode will be available on Tuesday, March 31st!

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.
