With this episode, Manga Out Loud has completed it's first year. Thank you to everyone you have been listening to Manga Out Loud. I deeply appreciate your support and feedback.
One housekeeping announcement. Since Johanna and I co-host, I will not be including her name as a guest in the show titles anymore. You can assume that she is a part of the episode unless stated otherwise. I just want to streamline the titles a little more.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to one and all.
Wandering Son is actually in hardcover and has the same page size as A Drunken Dream. It was originally planned to be released in November but wasn't solicited until this month. All resolicits have a "(RES)" at the end of the title in Diamond's listing. I completely agree with Johanna about digital piracy but to me the most shocking and surprising thing about the whole situation is how most publishers are completely ignoring what was learned by the music industry when dealing with online piracy. It really is kind of disappointing to see pretty much every comic publisher, Japanese and American, ignoring all of those lessons and doing things like apps and what not.
