Acmecast #3 - the Back Issue Bin

We've been so busy this week getting ready for our Very Dapper signing on Saturday that we haven't had time to record a fresh Acmecast! So we dipped into the old back issue bin and found a gem from September when we were still cutting our podcasting chops!

Enjoy and we'll be back next week with a new episode!

While Stephen was getting to know Carly he was also getting to know a whole new world of names, faces and stories that not even he could have known would have such an impact on his life. Throw in roommates, exams and part-time jobs and you've got an all-American love story for an all-American genre.

We're HERE!

While there are plenty of podcasts that focus on the people that MAKE comics and the people that READ comics, Acme Wave Projector is coming to you straight from the people that SELL comics!

We can't unsee many of things that have happened within these walls, but we can share them with you, transformed from nightmares into humorous anecdotes!

Together Jermaine Exum and Stephen Mayer have 2 Eisner nominations and over 20 years of comic retailing experience between them. When you unpack 10,000 new books a week, it gives you a pretty unique perspective on your own hobby.

That's not all! Acme Wave Projector will also serve as a home to a variety of comics-related podcasts, so stay tuned!
