Show #23 - March 22

Show 23 on MP3

Finally! An interview with Rory Root, owner of Comic Relief in Berkeley, my favorite comic book shop. We talk about comics in the Bay Area, trades, women in comic shops, libraries, and a whole mess of other stuff.

  • Great interview. I never really thought about it before, but Comic Relief really does have more of a bookstore model than a periodical model, which is one of the reasons it's so great. I think I'll have hop on BART and make a shopping trip in Berkeley this afternoon.

    And of course, Happy Birthday!

  • Hey there,

    Really fun interview. My wife and I had the good fortune to meet Rory last November in Montreal. Really good guy and he seemed relaxed and laid back in your interview. Since that's usually a reflection on the interviewer, I can only say "nice job"! :)

    Don't know if you'll be heading to over to APE in (gulp!) two weeks, but my wife and I will be at Table #229.
