Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash - Red Bank, NJ
Any comic book aficionado must go on a Hajj (Arabic: حج Ḥaǧǧ "pilgrimage", also spelled haj and hadj) to Red Bank NJ's Secret Stash. Director, Actor, Pod-caster, and Comic Book-Collector Kevin Smith has built a beautiful store, and the people that work there are knowledgeable, classy and friendly. It is a testament to the beauty of the art, and a shrine to his contributions to that art.
It was only after my pilgrimage that I found out about AMC's "Comic Book Men" a series that captures the embodiment of a camaraderie formed around a subculture that very few people "get". If I had known about the series before I had asked, I may have been a little more star-struck when asking Mr. Zapcic for permission to film. ;)
Check it out. You won't be disappointed. They also have a some wonderful podcasts I suggest you check out.
