Welcome to That’s The Issue! I’m Matt Lune, and I’ll be joined every episode by guests to discuss their love of comics by looking at the comics they love.

In this week’s episode, I’m joined by the creator of the upcoming “Super Fun Sexy Times” Meredith McClaren and co-host of the Fantasticast podcast Steve Lacey, to talk about their love of comics from far and wide.

For Steve, it’s one of the first comics he ever read: “Asterix in Belgium,” and for Meredith, it’s one of her favorite Shojo Manga: “From Far Away.”

Along the way, we’ll discuss the good and bad things about reading translated works, the ways in which humor and emotion span all languages, and how to properly convey tricky subjects such as sexuality and relationships for modern audiences. All this and much more!
