There are a whole slew of TV shows that depict treasure seekers and their quests to make millions from junk in other people’s garages. Some are treats, some are awful, but few of those shows star someone who truly knows his collectibles. Comic Book America with Mike Carbonaro, available on CONtv, does just that. Mike’s been in the collectibles field for decades and truly knows his stuff in ways that many people can only dream about. That means that not only does Mike’s show educate you on some of the most amazing pop culture items around, but it also gives you a chance to watch a true expert at work. In the enthralling first episode, Mike visits one of the largest Dr. Strange collections in the world — sheer heaven for a Steve Ditko fanatic like me.
Check it out — it’s great that there’s so much terrific geek material out there these days.
