Christmas Special 2

It’s Christmas time again on My Comic Shop History! For the second annual holiday special, host Anthony Desiato proudly presents a supersized double feature. First up: Anthony sits down with returning guest Chris Wilcock of Undiscovered Realm to talk market trends, moving a store, the inside scoop on running a comic book convention, and of course, Funko POPs! Then, in the second half, Anthony introduces listeners to a new shop, It'z Vintage, a mecca of classic toys and collectibles. Anthony chats with the store's owner, Allen Baus, about his comic shop history, the timeless appeal of the Kenner Super Powers line of action figures, and the ins & outs of running his shop, which consists almost entirely of his personal collection. It's a holiday podcast extravaganza featuring two in-depth, one-on-one conversations not to be missed!

About the Podcast

My Comic Shop History
A Podcast from the Director of My Comic Shop Country
My Comic Shop History is a podcast hosted by filmmaker Anthony Desiato (My Comic Shop DocumentARy, My Comic Shop Country) exploring the culture, business, and fandom of the comics retail industry. In Season 1, New York's Alternate Realities closed after 23 years in operation, a community united to say farewell, and a podcast was born. The series continued with deep dives into collecting (Season 2), national comics retail (Season 3), conventions (Season 4), and Westchester County's lost shops (Season 5). Now, in "The LongAR Halloween," the Alternate Realities gang is back to celebrate a year's worth of holidays together over 13 monthly installments.
