Storytelling and Comics w/ Buck Berlin from New World Comics
Show Notes

Welcome to Chapter 56!
Today I get to introduce you to the owner of one of the great comic shops in Oklahoma - Buck Berlin from New World Comics in OKC. New World has been a fixture in Oklahoma City for decades and Buck has been its owner and chaos coordinator for the last couple of those. 
In our conversation we cover:

  • The origins of the store and what it has to offer
  • The comic creation scene in Oklahoma
  • The role Buck and a group of superhero cosplayers perform in the community
  • Advice for those just getting interested in comics
  • What to expect when you walk into a comic shop for the first time
  • The value of comics for reluctant readers
  • the significance of comics as a medium for storytelling
