My Comic Shop History

The Alternate Realities Legend Never Dies

Host Anthony Desiato explores the culture, business, and fandom of the comics retail industry in the flagship 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 will sign off for good in 2023 with a quarterly farewell event entitled “For All Seasons.”
