Episode #36 – Mild Mannered Drama-Cast

12 07 2010

We’re Back! Well, sort of… It’s just the Mild Mannered Photographer accompanied by returning guest Carolyn, the Magical Tanooki and a completely new guest, Magical School Girl Sinead! And It’s finally happened, we review a manga on the podcast, and it’s called DRAMA-CON!

It’s by Svetlana Chmakova, and while there is no harem of girls, light swords, or tentacles there is a whole bunch of girls dressed up in costume so thats cool.

But seriously, listen to our review first before you dismiss what be one of the most interesting slice of life comics about an anime convention, but in the form of a manga!

Episode #35 – Accents Abound!

7 02 2010

On this episode of the Mild Mannered Podcast we’re doing an episode entirely in London! I, your long running host, The Mild Mannered Photographer was unable to record with The Mild Mannered Man on the Street or the Mild Mannered Music Man this week, luckily I was able to wrangle in some new friends from the other room and the original 3 man podcast became a 6 man podcast party, lots of subjects were discussed, here are just some of them.

– Doesn’t matter whether it’s Gosh Comics or Forbidden Planet, buying comics in London is expensive!

– We debate the storytelling merits of Seaguy by Grant Morrison

– I do some live on the scene reporting at Forbidden Planet during the signing of The 45 from ComX Comics

– And we all agree that Axe Cop is smegging awesome.
