It’s being billed as a subsititue for those who can’t make it to Comic-Con this year. National Geographic Channel’s Comic Store Heroes follows three staffers of Midtown Comics in New York as well as their customers and every day comic book fans, on their road to New York Comic Con. The comparison is evident – is this another Comic Book Men? Thor Parker, the Social Marketing and Events Director for Midtown, and I are here to tell you “no.” Why am I joining in the conversation? I’m one of the fans featured in the special airing tomorrow, July 13, on the National Geographic Channel. Hit the jump to hear what Parker and I have to say about the special, the evolution of geek culture, the comparisons with CBM, and lots more!
