With his encyclopedic knowledge of comics and his colorful personality, Mike Carbonaro (also known as Carbo), has been one of the most visible personalities in the NY comics scene. As a boy, Carbonaro put himself through private school by buying and selling comics. He launched a comic convention business in the 70s, and from 1981 to 1997 ran the Queens comic store Continental Comics. In 1996, Carbonaro began the Big Apple Convention and created the New York Comic Book Marketplace in 2010.
Anthony Snyder has been selling art, comic books and vintage toys professionally since the early 90s. AnthonysComicBookArt.com and Snyder’s e-bay store have become destinations for the best comic book art on the web, drawing from his giant warehouse in NJ. Snyder’s love for collecting is palpable in his customer (and viewer) interactions. He has made SELLING HEROES a family affair, with his wife Sharon co-hosting the show with and special appearances from his sons, Cameron, AJ and Jamison.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now I already know about Mr. Carbonaro after having attended a few of his Big Apple Comic Con happenings over the years and if you’d like to take a look inside the spectacle just click HERE to see what its all about. As a fan of the show “Comic Book Men”, feel that this could be something interesting and fun to watch so I will very likely be streaming it after the fact. The summer months have really amped up the demands on my time and one does need to sleep every once in a while LOL. Maybe Carbo will offer up some tips on making money with ones old comic book collection, I think I could sacrifice a few of the long boxes in my collection and I am sure you like-minded geeks know what I am talking about. Anyway, closing up what do you think of the premise of this one? Going to give it a shot? Let me know down below.
