On this episode of Manga Mavericks, Colton & Lum once again go over the last months worth of news! We start off with a few depressing items such as the passing of Dubu, the artist behind Solo Leveling, as well as some updates on a few series that are currently on hiatus due to a variety of health issues caused by the general harsh workload of the manga industry. Despite that, there’s also a lot to look forward to, such as a ton of new manga licenses like always, some new upcoming anime films coming to theaters in the US and even new takes on Death Note coming up from both the creators of Stranger Things and also…The Simpsons!? All this more on this episode of the podcast! Enjoy!!

About The Author Colton

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 was a show 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 Sket Dance, Eyeshield 21, My Hero Academia and much, much more. Colton can be found frequenting sites such as Anilist and Twitter under the handle of sniperking323.
