Burning Pen

Show #71 - The Webcomic Episode

Show #071Direct Download:
OP and ED: "Theme from Mega Force" by Movie Night: The Band

Hetalia - began as a webcomic, and was collected into manga volumes, then adapted into an anime series which was streamed online for free in Japan.
Tonari No 801-chan was similarly a webcomic, and I think it was adapted into a live action drama series.

At 1 h 9m 35s - we talk about Japanese comics some more, and it's historical and informative.
