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! The store’s website is at this link, and you can also find out more by checking out their Facebook page and keeping up with them on Twitter. Don’t miss this entertaining and informative interview!
It’s been a terrific week for fans of Superman and Batman, and we get to celebrate that here at the Wayne’s Comics Podcast with a special 94th episode!
First up is a great interview with Nightwing and upcoming Batman Beyond scribe Kyle Higgins, who talks about both gigs and how he got into writing for the Batman family of comics. He discusses the current storyline with Dick Grayson in Chicago and gives a couple of hints about what we might expect in the coming months.
Then I talk with Dave Romeo from Comics on the Green in Scranton, Pennsylvania, about how his great store is doing (and the industry as well). Their site is located at comicsonthegreen.com!
Everything wraps up my “faster than a speeding bullet” review of the new Superman film Man of Steel, so don’t miss it!
