After the Season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead on October 23, stay tuned for “Bucket List,” the Season 6 premiere of Comic Book Men, the hit series that follows the antics in and around Kevin Smith’s comic shop!

And one of the show’s special season-opening guests? Diamond Founder, President & CEO Steve Geppi at Geppi’s Entertainment Museum in Baltimore!

Watch the Season 6 Trailer!

The Season 6 opener will air at 12:40 a.m. ET. and will be available thereafter on AMC’s Comic Book Menwebsite.

Geppi met the cast & crew of the show at Geppi’s Entertainment Museum (GEM) this summer, flying back and forth between Baltimore and Comic-Con International: San Diego to film his segment.

“Originally, the GEM segment was going to appear in a later episode this season,” Geppi said, “but  everyone was so pleased with how the segment turned out that it was moved up to the season opener. As for my part, I just tried to be myself. In fact, I thrilled the crew and surprised myself by managing to do my on-camera segment in one take, even after flying in from San Diego!

Comic Book Men airs after the top-rated show on television,” Geppi continued. “That illustrates the recognition and respect that comics and the comic industry are getting. My hope is that the GEM segment will continue to show that, and that retailers will see this as another tool for creating excitement as they promote comics, pop culture and their stores.”
