On this episode of Manga Mavericks, we invite on Kendra from the My Hero Academia Podcast, as well as Luke from Hero Notes and the Weird Science Manga & Anime Podcast to discuss My Hero Academia: SMASH!! A 4 panel gag comedy spin off of My Hero Academia where almost anything can happen! Like Shigaraki and the League of Villains kidnaping Bakugo to play board games, or Iida playing Gacha games in order to teach his fellow classmates the horrors of gambling addiction, or even introducing a character with a quirk called Isekai that causes the world to stay stuck in time forever (yes, that actually happens). We discuss this mixed bag of gags and goofs and how its a good avenue to give some characters more screen time, but also how some strips and jokes just absolutely do not land or are just plain gross. Is this the worst thing we’ve ever read on Manga Mavericks!? Tune in and find out!

Check out the newest podcast available exclusively on our Patreon discussing the original My Hero one shot to cap off our month of podcasts dedicated to Kohei Horikoshi!!

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.
