Comic Book Shopping is back with legendary filmmaker, comic book writer and pop culture icon Kevin Smith as our guest. Comic Book Shopping is hosted by Collider Heroes’ Coy Jandreau and gives guests the opportunity to tap into their inner comic book fan by spending some time browsing the racks at local comic book shops in Los Angeles. Past guests have included Jake Gyllenhaal, David Harbour, Michael Rooker, Michael Giacchino, Frank Miller, Zachary Levi, and many more industry heavyweights.
Kevin and Coy meet up at Golden Apple Comics in Los Angeles to talk about their shared love of comic books.
