Fantastic documentary re comic book stores: “My Comic Shop” on YouTube

Published on Apr 30, 2014


Spinoff Coming Soon:…

My Comic Shop DocumentARy is an independent, feature-length film about New York’s Alternate Realities. In 1992, Alternate Realities owner Steve Oto embarked upon a journey from lawyer to comic book retailer. It has been a journey filled with accomplishment and disappointment, friendship and heartbreak, and a dream that would become a nightmare.

Humorous, intimate, and heartfelt, My Comic Shop DocumentARy shines a light on the colorful community that has assembled at Alternate Realities over the past two decades. From Oto himself, who dispenses his oddball wisdom in the form of pithy sayings known as “Otoisms,” to a customer who works at restaurant chain T.G.I. Friday’s but claims to moonlight as a member of an elite SWAT team, it is a community more colorful than even the pages of a comic book.

​A true D.I.Y. project, first-time filmmaker Anthony Desiato handled virtually all aspects of production on My Comic Shop DocumentARy while attending law school and working at Alternate Realities. The completed film has screened at NewFilmmakers New York (May 2011), the San Diego Comic-Con International Independent Film Festival (July 2011), the St. Louis International Film Festival (November 2011), the Buffalo Niagara Film Festival (April 2012), and the Phoenix Comicon Film Festival (May 2012).

In July 2012, it was the inaugural entry in the “Local Element” series at Pleasantville’s prestigious Jacob Burns Film Center. My Comic Shop DocumentARy has garnered press in multiple media outlets, including The New York Times, Newsday, (the comic book industry’s premier news site), and more.
