    I’d like to make a quick correction to something I said regarding Tokyopop’s BLU manga. BLU manga has been pulled from Digital Manga’s eManga website as of yesterday, 2 weeks before it was originally scheduled. The Japanese publisher, Gentosha, requested that the titles be removed immediately, so they are gone for good. If you were lucky enough to purchase them beforehand, they will remain in your reading list as promised.

    Oh, also, review links for manga mentioned in the ‘cast:
    Tezuka’s Ayako:

    20th Century Boys:

    House of Five Leaves:

  3. Guys I loved Wolverine #8, and X-Cutioner’s Song is probably my favorite X-over too! Plus Prelude to Schism was awesome!

    Kristin it was great hearing you on the Podcast too! 😀

    I’ve loved the reboot of Wolverine, but that issue just blew me away by how awesome it was. Schism from what I’ve been reading seems like the making of something that people will be talking about for years to come.
