Ready to visit the front lines of the comics industry? In this week’s episode, #263, I talk with Dave Romeo, the owner and operator of Comics on the Green, a high-power comics shop that’s been a standard setter for the industry since Dave opened it over two decades ago! Dave understands both the business and fan aspects of comics, so we talk about everything from how 2016 went in his shop to what he envisions taking place in 2017. We discuss comics companies including Marvel, DC, Image and AfterShock, as well as the impact of comics-related moves and TV shows on local stores, among other fascinating things!
