Live and direct from Tokyo, we bring you a rare interview with the cross-cultural manga sensation, Felipe Smith!
Back in the states for a brief respite from writing and drawing comics like the Meltcast-approved Peepo Choo, we have an extensive and energetic chat with Felipe about living in Japan, and working in the high-pressure manga industry. Also, Felipe gives us an on-the-ground view of Tokyo after the earthquake and tsunami.
Along with Meltcast alumni Ed Laroche, we take you around the horn for a session of Whatchu Been Reading (37:30) addressing comics such as Echoes, New York 5, Osborn, Wolverine & Jubilee, Namor, FF, Ultimate Comics: Thor, Sixth Gun, Superman/Batman, War of the Green Lanterns, and of course, our Meltcast Picks of the Week!
Hit us up! We want to hear from YOU. Email, voicemail, smoke signals, it’s all at MELTCAST.COM!
