ICv2 has the lowdown on another comics shop reality show, this one set in Midtown Comics:
On Friday, July 13th at 8 pm (ET, PT) the National Geographic cable channel will present Comic Store Heroes, a one-hour reality show set in New York’s Midtown Comics. The documentary-style show will follow the lives of staffers Gerry, Thor, and Alex as they deal with all sorts of geek and enthusiast customers while simultaneously planning their booth at the New York Comic Con.
We’ve always wanted to see a documentary about Thor Parker, so cross that one off the bucket list.
More seriously, this should be a very interesting contrast to Comic Book Men. And of course it airs during Comic-Con when the news is sure to be filled with those words. Set the DVRs!
