My Comic Shop History (2015-2023)
The Alternate Realities Legend Never Dies
For nearly a decade, host Anthony Desiato explored the culture, business, and fandom of the comics retail industry in the inaugural podcast series of Flat Squirrel Productions. In Season 1, New York’s Alternate Realities closed after 23 years in operation, a community united to say farewell, and a podcast was born.
The series continued with deep dives into collecting (Season 2), national comics retail (Season 3), conventions (Season 4), and Westchester County’s lost shops (Season 5).
During late 2020 and 2021, the podcast presented “The LongAR Halloween,” a yearlong, holiday-themed reunion with the Alternate Realities gang.
In 2022, My Comic Shop History returned with “Their Comic Shop History,” a duology of multi-part events showcasing Fat Moose Comics (NJ) and Acme Comics (NC).
The show signed off for good in 2023 with a quarterly farewell event entitled “For All Seasons” — but the AR community lasts forever.
