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). During late 2020 and 2021, the podcast presented "The LongAR Halloween," a yearlong, holiday-themed reunion with the Alternate Realities gang. In 2022, My Comic Shop History returns with "Their Comic Shop History," a duology of multi-part events showcasing Fat Moose Comics (NJ) and Acme Comics (NC).
