On this episode of Manga Mavericks, Colton & Lum once again catch up on some news! Including the usual serialization news, some industry stuff, a bunch of cool anime and popularity poll news, and so many licenses that they had to pick a select few talk about, but they’re all great nonetheless!! Even after all the news, they still take the time to talk about the first chapter of Choujin X, the newest series from Tokyo Ghoul creator, Sui Ishida, and boy was it a first chapter!!

This episode of the podcast is dedicated to the passing of Shunsuke Kikuchi, Akira Ito, and Kentaro Miura. Thank you for everything you’ve given us, and rest in peace.

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.
