Host Anthony Desiato recruits two convention veterans and Alternate Realities refugees, Drew Cheskin and Brian O’Dea, to share their tips for surviving comic conventions. For those attending a large show for the first time, the episode covers budgeting time and money, navigating the show floor, deciding what type of show experience you are looking for, and more. Midseason finale. “Con Season” will resume in September. This summer, be sure to keep tuning in for a two-part “My Comic Shop Book Club” event and a four-part “Beyond My Comic Shop” miniseries, all available under the My Comic Shop History feed!
Host Anthony Desiato heads over to beautiful downtown Harrison, NY, to speak with two of the owners of Aw Yeah Comics NY: comic book creator Franco (TINY TITANS, ENCOUNTER, and the upcoming SUPERMAN OF SMALLVILLE) and ReedPOP’s Mike Negin (C2E2 Event Manager). They discuss Aw Yeah’s recent “Legends” signing, Mike and Franco’s comic shop histories, and some hot topics in the world of comic conventions—from the risk of over-saturating the industry with too many shows to striking a balance between the interests of old-school comic fans and the wider pop culture audience.
Host Anthony Desiato presents a special double-sized installment of My Comic Shop History: two episodes in one! First up is “In Defense of Batman v Superman,” in which Anthony sits down with Doug Doescher, Ralph Puma, and Damien Torres to discuss the film and try to find some redemption for it. The second half, “Other Side of the Table,” features cartoonist (X-Babies, Pix: One Weirdest Weekend) and podcaster (Stuff Said, Cruisin’ Together) Gregg Schigiel. In an informative one-on-one chat, Anthony and Gregg discuss the creator perspective on comic conventions and store signings and deliver a crash course on self-publishing a comic book project.
In this episode we talk about superhero casting news, Morris Turner,comic conventions, comic book numbering,Avengers Arena, Revival,Earth 2 Annual,Todd the Ugliest Kid on Earth and much more.
