Hey everybody and welcome to Episode 3 of Certified Comic Talk, the podcast that helps YOU become a better comic-preneur TODAY!
Apparently booking guests and syncing calendars to record a podcast episode is more challenging than I anticipated, so I’m flying solo on today’s show and I’m going to take you allllll the waaaaaayy back….to last year.
To March and April of 2017 to be precise. Those are the first two months that the Certified Comic Shop officially became a thing. During the show I’m going to talk about these first two months extensively and what it was like starting an online comic shop.
Enjoy The Show!
After Episode 2 of Certified Comic Talk dropped with special guest Comic Tom, the positive feedback for the show started to roll in.

- Dr. Doge Comics
- Bear Island Comics
- Michael Levtchenko
- DS Comics
- GreggV 9.8
