Episode 2.4: Complete Run

Host Anthony Desiato teams up with 13th Dimension's Dan Greenfield and former comic shop employee Sean McInerney to tackle the completist mentality that drives many collectors. Why do we continue to buy and read comics we may no longer enjoy simply to maintain that coveted complete run?

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). Following the conclusion of "The LongAR Halloween," a yearlong, holiday-themed reunion with the Alternate Realities gang, My Comic Shop History will return when there are new stories to be told.
