The Two Mikes

The Two Mikes
Ever wanted to talk with someone about a book you just read? You could just join a book group and talk about it, drink a little, veer off on tangents, work back around to the book again, and finally wrap it up by picking the next book.

But what happens when the book you just read is about about hungry zombies or a haunted house, and your Eat, Pray, Love–reading friends aren’t really into reading it, much less discussing its finer points? That’s what we’re here for. We Two Mikes will be your virtual book group for discussing new and interesting and old and half-forgotten horror books.

If you want to follow along with us, look at the next forbidden book on the table and start reading.

Epi. 14: Hideyuki Kikuchi's Vampire Hunter D

Click image to listen.

If you don't like the pulp strained out of your horror then join the Mikes as they discuss the manga novel Hideuki Kikuchi's Vampire Hunter D. They re-image the book as a 1960's schlock movie starring the boy from the Courtship of Eddie's Father, Elke Sommer in a black wig and Davy Jones as the "D." All this and you can grunt along to our Anime Sound Effects Theater. There is more mystery to the LEFT HAND than you could ever have imagined.

If you haven't read the book do not proceed further because this episode is 100% PURE SPOILER.
