Dan used to own a comic book store so he has a lot of great insights into the industry. He also has tons of reading tips for indie comics. We remember the TV show Heroes, which was a little ahead of its time. Is there such a thing as too much collecting? Are big line-wide events annoying? What major comic book story was spoiled by the local news? Why aren't modern comic books more valuable? What makes a comic have value? What is a variant cover? What job does Brett really want? Should Marvel and DC start looking to their 2nd tier characters for movie ideas?
