That Old Comic Smell ,

Awesome Show!

I’ve been with this podcast since the very beginning and absolutely love the deep conversations on the often less discussed business side of comics. Anthony finds a way to reinvent the show every season, making this a can’t miss podcast!

Great show

Anthony is a great interviewer and moves the show along wonderfully. I would love to hear a bit more how the shop owners utilize net profits against pulling a salary/reinvesting in inventory. Always a great selection of guests and shop owners.

The only episode I couldn’t stand was the couple from Delaware. The lady’s liberal lunacy vibrates through the whole episode podcast. It was truly nauseating. The husband detesting people who haggle was also a trip. They are meant for each other. Wonder who they voted for? #MAGA!

On a lighter note, I stop by the Spiders Web ever other month as work brings me past it. Having heard both shows w its owner I am looking forward to my next visit. I actually feel compelled to spend some cash now and help the cause rather than doing a one off window shop.

Great for Diehard and Casual Comics Fans!

I'm not a expert on comics or comic shops, and I still really enjoy this podcast. It's interesting to hear what it's like to run a comic shop and deal with customers. This show is also really well produced, and the interviews flow really well. Anthony does a great job putting this together and bringing interesting guests onto the show.
