Host Anthony Desiato brings everything full-circle in Season 5 with a look back at the lost comic shops of Westchester County, capturing a microcosm of the comics industry during the pivotal 1990s. Up first is the White Plains, NY, location of distributor and retail chain HEROES WORLD, the site of Anthony’s first-ever comic book purchase. Along for the ride is legendary returning guest Steve Oto, who–years before he would co-found Alternate Realities–shopped and worked at Heroes World.
This is the last of the My Other Podcast episodes as we race towards my hiatus, which needs to come in order for me to return with an all new, all awesome, show.
The topics this week range from the Annual Binge Watching Championships, freaking out over downloads, Batman causing bricks to explode with just a punch, and celebrities who dare to give their opinions in public.
This week we look at Hercules Unbound #9! This issue involves a flying comb and robots made of Play-doh! Also, weird hand gestures, and an old lady starting WWIII!! Also, a listener tells us what he thought of Avengers: Endgame! Nuff Said!
Co-hosts Phil Bova and Myron Rumsey are back with episode 141 of The Podcast of Oa. This episode Myron and Phil take a look at The Green Lantern #8 as Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp give readers an ode to the Hard Travelling Heroes era where Hal Jordan teams up with his old friend Ollie Queen. The two are once again after drug pushers, but this time around it’s a whole new bag in this cosmic tale of greed and corruption. All that and we talk about the Teen Lantern and DCeased #2.

This week Main Podcast is PATREON EXCLUSIVE Ep 230: Annuals Week, Doomsday Clock, Last Knight on Earth and White Castle only on Patreon (HERE) so for the Spotlight this week, I figured we would highlight another show we do each month on Patreon and that’s the Back Issues Podcast. Each Month (for DC and Marvel BTW), we review an issue from the past and way back on September 23, 2018 we talked about Batman #427. That was also the week when Heroes in Crisis debuted and we end up talking about that a bit as well. So, I hope you enjoy what you hear and check us out on our Patreon!

I’m back again this week with more from My Other Podcast. My hiatus has technically begun. I am working furiously to bring you something new and fun in the next month or so, but rather than give you nothing but silence during this time, I’m doing what I can to release content for you, my dear listeners.
This week we have bits and bobs from My Other Podcast episodes 32 – 48 which means you are going to hear a bewildering variety of topics.
Get ready for a great conversation about Indie comics!

Then we discuss the release of his latest issues and what we might expect from him in the near future! For more, go to this link!
