Host Anthony Desiato brings everything full-circle in Season 5 with a look back at the lost comic shops of Westchester County, capturing a microcosm of the comics industry during the pivotal 1990s.

Along for the ride is legendary returning guest Steve Oto, who--years before he would co-found Alternate Realities--shopped and worked at Heroes World.
