My Comic Shop History Christmas Special 2

christmasspecial

It’s Christmas time again on My Comic Shop History! For the second annual holiday special, host Anthony Desiato proudly presents a supersized double feature. First up: Anthony sits down with returning guest Chris Wilcock of Undiscovered Realm to talk market trends, moving a store, the inside scoop on running a comic book convention, and of course, Funko POPs! Then, in the second half, Anthony introduces listeners to a new shop, It’z Vintage, a mecca of classic toys and collectibles. Anthony chats with the store’s owner, Allen Baus, about his comic shop history, the timeless appeal of the Kenner Super Powers line of action figures, and the ins & outs of running his shop, which consists almost entirely of his personal collection. It’s a holiday podcast extravaganza featuring two in-depth, one-on-one conversations not to be missed!

My Comic Shop History 2.5: King of Pops

Pops

Host Anthony Desiato dives into the highly addictive world of Funko’s Pop Vinyl figures with his collecting partner in crime (and fiancée) Stephanie Chow. Together, they welcome Undiscovered Realm owner Chris Wilcock (AKA the King of Pops) to talk about the appeal of these figures, the tricky task of self-policing one’s buying habits, industry trends, and some must-hear tips for Pop collectors.

It’s the final episode of 2012 with a look through Previews, just in time for your last-minute holiday shopping, but I start off with a real-time reaction to the firing of Gail Simone off of Batgirl.
