Kevin Smith Reality Show COMIC BOOK MEN Coming to AMC

Two trailers have been released showing us what is to be expected from the show, which seems to be just banter between friends.

Opened in 1997, Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash, named after owner Kevin Smith's most well known creations, has become a favored destination for both comic book fans and admirers of the director's work. Located in Red Bank, New Jersey (the setting of most of Smith's films), it has, in recent years, become home to the podcast Tell Em' Steve-Dave, which airs on Smith's podcast network S.I.R. Now, announced by Cinema Blend, it will become the subject of new T.V. show from AMC, €œComic Book Men€. Originally announced as €œSecret Stash€, the name change is probably because it sounded like something along the lines of €œBreaking Bad€ or €œWeeds€, and to appeal to a broader comic audience who would not be aware of the store. The series synopsis reads:
€œSet in Kevin Smith's iconic comic shop, Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash, the unscripted show captures the world of the neighborhood comic book store and fanboy culture€
Two trailers have been released showing us what is to be expected from the show, which seems to be just banter between friends. Understandable as they have known each other for many years. One of the 'cast' members, manager Walt Flanagan, will be familiar to fans of Smith's work, having appeared in a number of his films and also served as artist on his two Batman series, Cacophony and The Widening Gyre. Love him or hate him, there is no denying Kevin Smith has a loyal fan base, and anything to do with comics seems to be gold these days, so the show is expected to do well. AMC seem to think so, scheduling the season premiere, the first of six one hour episodes, to follow another comic book related show, The Walking Dead.
