    As a collector of many things in my day (beer cans, Olympic pins, baseball cards), I enjoy the negotiations between collectors and the store. And the personalities are amusing. It's certainly not a show that I'd dedicate an hour to every week, but as something to listen to while doing other things, it's perfect.

    Given the characters who also turn up looking to sell comics and memorabilia, Smith's original idea--"Pawn Stars" with comics--might have been enough to win him a slot just about anywhere on cable. The podcast just makes it funnier.

    Oddly enough, many viewers may not need to know DC Comics' Issue No. 1 chapter, verse and thought bubble to find Comic Book Men mildly amusing.

    The illustrated title sequence of Comic Book Men depicts these guys as musclemen in tights, but the scenes that follow are strictly mild-mannered.
