The TradeWaiters 70: “Drifting Dragons” Vol. 1&2 by Taku Kuwabara


We recorded this episode only a few months ago, and yet anything before quarantine began feels like a lifetime ago. Anyways, this is Drifting Dragons volumes 1 and 2 by Taku Kuwabara. Faith Erin Hicks joins us again for a deep dive into a manga about hunting, killing, and eating dragons. We also get lost on detours about analogy, cartoonist envy, and what it means to be famous in comics.
