Deb Aoki

Deb Aoki has been reading, buying and writing about manga obsessively for… well, let’s just say it pre-dates home internet access. She writes about manga for Publisher’s Weekly, wrote the Manga Answerman column for Anime News Network, and kvetches about comics on Twitter at @debaoki. She’s also an illustrator and comics creator.

David Brothers

David Brothers started out writing a review of Madden NFL 2004 in college, the beginning of a career that somehow led to him editing manga at the biggest publisher in the US, despite his sordid past as a comics critic and marketer. Now, he’s looking forward to becoming the most beloved manga podcaster in the world. http://iamdavidbrothers.com
