On this episode of Manga Mavericks, we have yet another review of a new series whose first volume is now on sale from Viz Media known as Moriarty the Patriot from Ryosuke Takeuchi and Hikaru Miyoshi! A series that runs in Shueisha’s monthly Jump Square magazine starring the infamous nemesis of Sherlock Holmes himself, as he and his comrades take on the task of murdering the worst of England’s elite noble society to make the world a better place for the common folk. Lum & Colton are joined by letterer of the series, Ace Christman, to discuss their thoughts on this first volume and even some material coming up! They’re also sent in some thoughts from editor, Rae First, who couldn’t make it to the show, but still had some insights to contribute as well! The game is afoot, as our titular mavericks are ready to eat the rich right alongside Moriarty band of rouges! 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.
