Episode 23: Eisner Snubs, or how to get out of manga jail

Copy of Ep 22

Angela and Kelly break down the 2018 Eisner nominations–or, more accurately, spend 45 minutes complaining that their favorite things didn’t get nominated. We’re whining about middle grade snubs, looking for YA books in the YA category, and getting huffy about adaptations of Jane Eyre. Plus, Kelly goes on yet another indignant rant about manga getting treated like a leper at the Eisners.
