The Naruto manga has finished and it has left many fans and myself a bite sadden. It was an amazing ride to read every issue and have the chance to watch it in action in the animation. The anime still goes on but even that will soon finish. So, I, Bayne Duum, sit before you today to talk about the amazing times I had with Naruto. Listen in to hear about how a Manga/Anime made an impact on my entertainment life and even my personal life. Let's celebrate an amazing master piece and give it an amazing sound off.

9 am Wednesdays, "The Tufts Get Going!" host Rosanna Tufts
"ElfQuest LoveFest." What, you've never heard of ElfQuest? Where've you been these last 35 years? Back then, there were NO independent comics -- and certainly no female comic-book artists -- until Wendy Pini broke the mold with ElfQuest, a richly detailed fantasy that can be enjoyed on multiple levels (with her husband Richard handling the administrative publisher side). I first discovered it when I was in college, but Amber Skies, a professional "CosPlayer," has been a lifelong fan! She joins me this morning to help me introduce you to incredible art and sprawling saga of Elfquest, often considered to be the first American Manga.

Ever wonder, as you play your favorite game, "Gee, I wish I could dress up like that character?" For most, this is comes and goes as a fleeting dream. Some, however, take it upon themselves to assemble all of the sewing skills as well as arts and crafts knowledge to successfully dress up as their favorite characters from their favorite games (and movies/Animes/Mangas).
This week, the GCR crew goes DIY, exploring the inner-workings of the cosplay "machine." They'll discuss helpful hints/tips, resources, and issues that surround the cosplay scene. They'll also explore how to "dress" up your wargaming miniatures with some avid advice, and there may -- or may not -- be a few additional surprises waiting for you. So tune in, and don't miss out!
Embracing numerous musical genres and a fresh blend of traditional Turkish and Western rock music, hard rock quartet maNga are ready to storm the U.S. Feat singer Ferman Akgül, guitarist Yagmur Sarigül (aka “Yamyam”), drummer Özgür Can Öney and bassist Cem Bahtiyar, the Turkish group have drawn Int'l acclaim for the infectious sounds on their three albums, which one could compare in spirit to Linkin Park or System Of A Down. They made a big noise representing their from home country in the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest, have over 3M Facebook followers and have drawn the attention of Billboard, the Huffington Post and MTV Europe. The band name maNga possesses a dual meaning. In Turkish, it refers to a unit of ten men in the army, and in Japanese, which was their chief inspiration for using the word, it means graphic novel. "The name was Yagmur's idea, and from that moment 12 years ago we were dreaming about having connections to other countries," declares Özgür. The foursome finally got to play before a NA audience at the SXSW festival in TX in March, and they play CMJ on Oct 18th. 3 months after they formed in 2001, the group competed on the TV show Sing Your Song, which is the Turkish version of Star Search. Their 2nd place showing ignited a creative spark that lead to numerous gigs in Turkey while writing the original tunes that comprised their self-titled debut album, which was released via Sony Epic in Turkey in December 2004. The album and its videos spotlighted an amalgam of heavy rock, hip-hop, pop and Turkish music.The album sold more than 180,000 copies in Turkey, making maNga the 1st band there to get gold certification on their debut album. The song “Bir Kadin Çizeceksin” appeared in the EA Sports FIFA 2006 computer game soundtrack, which exposed them to European audiences who loved their music even if they did not understand the words.

It's Monday night which means a new episode of Graphic Policy Radio! This is the show that mixes comics, geekdom, and politics.
This week we mix some comic discussion with that of conventions. On this episode:
We chat about Marvel and Peter David's All-New X-Factor.
This past weekend was Otakon. The convention covers manga, anime, and cosplay and attracts over 100,000 individuals to Baltimore, MD, for the weekend. We talk about the convention and some of the interesting observations from it.
We're talking those two things and more! You can listen in live, but also join in the conversation by calling us, or Tweeting us your thoughts, @graphicpolicy.
