Kevin Smith’s Comic Book Men on AMC Television Poster

So have you heard about Kevin Smith’s new television show Comic Book Men on AMC? Set in Kevin Smith's iconic comic shop Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash, the show explores every nook and cranny of Fanboy culture. Each episode features store transactions, including purchases, sales and the appraisal and discovery of fanboy-centric collectible items. There’s even the occasional staff field trip, when the Secret Stash gang ventures out to source rarities, and moments from podcasts with Kevin Smith and the Secret Stash team, which will be woven throughout the episode. Basically it sounds like a geeky version of Pawn Stars or Storage Wars, but starring a big named director/writer/actor.

16 year old The Blot would have gone crazy for this show! But as I’ve gotten older, my love and adulation for all things Kevin Smith has waned considerably, and I’m not into this new wave of store themed reality TV shows in the slightest. And can anyone explain to me what the heck this type of show is this show doing on AMC!?!

Comic Book Men features Secret Stash employees, including Walt, manager and de-facto leader at The Stash; Mike, the prototypical comic shop employee; Ming, the newest member of the team and the store's technical expert; and Bryan, who doesn't actually work at the Stash, yet can always be found holding court in the stool behind the front counter. Kevin Smith’s Comic Book Men premieres Sunday, February 12th at 10/9c on AMC.
