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). In 2021, "The LongAR Halloween" reunited the Alternate Realities gang in a yearlong, holiday-themed series. In 2022, My Comic Shop History presented a pair of multi-part events showcasing Fat Moose Comics ("Oldest in New Jersey") and Acme Comics ("The Once and Future Lord Retail"). Now, in 2023, the podcast signs off with a quarterly farewell event, "For All Seasons," which considers the legacy of Alternate Realities almost a decade after its closing.
