For All Seasons Chapter IV — Fall (SERIES FINALE)

Host Anthony Desiato reunites with his Alternate Realities brethren Steve Oto, Rich Roney, and Bill Maio one last time in the SERIES FINALE of the My Comic Shop History podcast series. Almost a decade since the closing of The Store, where does the AR community go from here?

In Act I of the podcast's farewell event, the gang relives their favorite AR stories, ponders their comic shop present & future, and gives some shout-outs. Then, in Act II, they hear from some old friends, compete in a "draft" of legendary AR customers, and share their gratitude before bidding the audience farewell.

The song heard throughout the episode is "Evil Deaded" by Ralph Puma, which has been featured multiple times on this podcast and the films MY COMIC SHOP DOCUMENTARY & MY COMIC SHOP COUNTRY.

Thank you to ALL guests, listeners, and supporters over the years. Be sure to follow your host on his other podcast series (including DIGGING FOR KRYPTONITE), show your local comic shop some love, and above all else: Don't be a flat squirrel.

About the Podcast

My Comic Shop History
A Podcast from the Director of My Comic Shop Country
For nearly a decade, host Anthony Desiato explored the culture, business, and fandom of the comics retail industry on this podcast series. In 2015, 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, national comics retail, conventions, Westchester County’s lost shops, and more. The show signed off for good in 2023 with a quarterly farewell event entitled “For All Seasons” — but the AR community lasts forever.
