“A Passion For Pop Culture.”
Michael Zapcic reveals his “secret origins” as a comic book nerd and pop culture lover. His childhood fascination with classic stories of right and wrong, good vs. evil, all set against a four-color backdrop, has evolved into a life and career of amazing stories and uncanny adventures. His lifelong devotion to the comic book medium allowed Michael to step off an unfulfilling path that was prescribed for him by family and friends and instead, to pursue a life with meaning, purpose, and passion. Considering the battle that DC and Marvel have had since the inception of comic books, this definitely made us want to ask his opinions on the dc vs. marvel analysis that has recently been conducted and to ask where he stood on the topic. However, we didn’t really get enough time to ask personal queries. He is a podcaster, TV personality, and comic book expert and assistant manager at Jay & Silent Bob’s Secret Stash for more than 15 years. Michael’s passion for comics has fueled a career filled with amazing stories and uncanny experiences. His message is broadcast each week through the internet via his podcasts “I Sell Comics” and “The Ming and Mike Show.”
Michael co-founded A Shared Universe PodcaStudio in 2017, with podcast partner Ming Chen, because he believes that everyone has a story to tell and deserves their chance to tell it. Podcasting is a friendly, accessible and affirming platform to exercise your voice and share your passions. Just give him a mic and ask him. He’ll tell you.
When he’s not podcasting or making deals at the store, Michael is probably filming the hit AMC series, Comic Book Men which also feature Kevin Smith and Ming Chen Comic Book Men, Bryan Johnson, and Walt Flanagan. Now in its 7th season, the show is a fan favorite with viewers around the world.
