Anthony's final stop is The Spider's Web in Yonkers, NY, owned by former Alternate Realities customer Paul Borrero.

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.
