Need More Book Clubs? ‘Marvel Presents: The World’s Greatest Book Club with Paul Scheer’!
Comics are big business since Disney bought Marvel Entertainment, and their latest push is to start a new book club! Hosted by Paul Scheer, we’ll soon be able to check out a 6-episode’ Marvel Presents: The World’s Greatest Book Club.’ Joining him will be a few very familiar names to the geek industry, including Damon Lindelof, Gillian Jacobs, W. Kamau Bell, Phil Lord, Yassir Lester, and Jason Mantzoukas.
According to Scheer, who spoke on the new series, “In this time, I think it’s so important to have an escape from the real world. Getting to go through the backlog of Marvel with my friends and live in this amazing world that Stan and Jack created has been incredibly therapeutic and fun, and I hope that people read along with us. But most importantly, we are getting to spotlight local comic shops across the country. These small businesses have been there for us all these years, so we all thought it’s important that we be there for them. Where else would we go to debate who’s stronger: The Thing or The Hulk?”
As to what we can expect:
For fans, comic shops have and always will be the heart of the comic book community; a place for new and longtime fans to come together and share their passion, fandom, and appreciation for the artform while learning about something new. As a lifelong lover of Marvel comics, Scheer will look to capture some of that comic shop experience by diving into the personal origin stories with comics and beyond with each guest in the series. Scheer will be joined by Marvel New Media Head of Content Stephen Wacker to provide an inside look into some of Marvel’s most-read classics and unlock forgotten treasures from the Marvel vault.
Which local comic shop is their go-to, and why is it their favorite? What’s the best comic or storyline of all time that we all need to read? How has reading comics changed their lives? These are just some of the questions Scheer will explore with his guests on MARVEL PRESENTS: THE WORLD’S GREATEST BOOK CLUB with PAUL SCHEER, so be sure to tune in each week on Marvel’s YouTube channel, Marvel.com, and other social channels for this series and other content to experience #MarvelAtHome. Check out Episode 1 now featuring Scheer’s first guest: writer and producer Damon Lindelof!
