On this episode we have our cool returning guest Kimono Joe on to help tackle one of the most polarized discussions in geek culture worldwide comic industry

JAPANESE MANGA Vs WESTERN COMICS……..FIGHT!!

Inspiration from many current emails / blogs and entertainment events made us want to discuss, analyze and debate the core aspects of this argument from both sides of the field.

To do this properly (In the tyro sense of things mind you) we break our discussion down into the following elements

How we got into comics / manga – our current experience

A brief summary of the birth modern comic / manga (post 1930’s)

Comic / Manga Character Analysis

Comic / Manga Writing / Storytelling Analysis

Differences between the Comic / Manga Business Model

Thoughts on Comic / Manga Illustration / Animation Quality

In relation to all this We also give our thoughts on what is still probably the highest profile west / east comic collaboration to date by Stan Lee & Hiroyuki Takei

NOTEWORTHY MENTIONABLES

Here are some of the interesting documentary titles about comics and manga which come directly from the professional industry.

Sadly the mentioned comic docs are still in post-production but from what you see on their project pages they both look VERY illuminating and interesting
