Okay, fair enough. I think that it is a bit of a stretch to call that selfish, though. You have set a difficult act for the next guest to follow. I look forward to the next episode.goldenspines (post: 1381136) wrote:Selfish? So I could meet you all whether you wanted to meet me or not.
Though, I can't imagine too many people would be upset about free plane and con tickets, but still...

Personally, if famous titles get people into reading comics because its about their favorite book series, then I'm all for it...
I guess I've just had good luck with the comics I've selected. Maximum Ride and another series which will remain nameless have REALLY awesome artwork... haha!
Anways, thanks for a great show! I forward to the next one!

But, Maximum Ride isn't manga, it's considered more manhwa. Though, I think the discussion still applies. Manga or manhwa cannot be defined by a certain art style(awesome or not) or other elements. Though, if there was a series that came close to being purely being manhwa (even though the story was written by an American, the art was by a Korean artist), that would be Maximum Ride. In my humble opinion, at least.
Concerning books becoming comics(or manga/manhwa), I'm not against, but like one of the guys commented, many of the books they are converting to comics/manga are not the best choices. Plus, a lot of manga do reflect some already written books' plots]Kuroshitsuji[/I] reflects a lot of elements that are in the classic play Faust. The basis of the plot is literally the same as well: Deal with the devil, who then becomes your servant).
/very late posted thoughts.
P.S. I am rather curious about this nameless series. XD;
