Storytelling and Comics w/ Buck Berlin

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
