On this episode of Manga Mavericks, Colton & Lum are joined by Eisner award winning comics artist, Joey Weiser, Twitter extraordinaire and horror enthusiast, Casey “MinovskyArticle”, as well as translator and yokai expert, Zack Davisson, to discuss Shigeru Mizuki’s GeGeGe no Kitaro manga! We discuss not only our thoughts on the comic in general, but as well as the life of Shigeru Mizuki and how his works have truly influenced Japanese culture as a whole!

Disclaimer: A gosh darn audio yokai came in while we were recording and messed up some of Zack’s audio, which means that some of it was so inaudible that parts of our conversation had to be cut, but we hope you enjoy the episode anyway!

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.
