Podcast Episode 71: Manga review for The Other Side of the Mirror Volume 1 by Jo Chen. Translated by J.Y. Standaert and adapted by Kereth Cowe-Spigai. Published by Tokyopop, $9.99, Rated Older Teen 16+.
An unemployed college graduate named Lou earns his money in drinking contests but is barely surviving on the mean streets of New York City.

What they have in common is their unseemly professions but perhaps together they can break out of their dead-end lives?
