As part of announcing the date for The Walking Dead Season 6 premiere, AMC also confirmed the return of Comic Book Men for a fifth season.
Season 5 of Comic Book Men will debut with two back-to-back episodes on Sunday, October 18 at midnight and 12:30 a.m. ET/PT. It will be the week after The Walking Dead Season 6 premiere, but with its Sunday night time slot, Comic Book Men will continue to enjoy the lead-in audience of both The Walking Dead and Talking Dead.
Comic Book Men dives deep into fanboy culture by following the antics in and around master fanboy Smith’s New Jersey comic shop, Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash. Leading the crew behind the Secret Stash counter are Walt, Mike, Brian and Ming, who geek out over mind-blowing pop culture artifacts and the legends behind them. Whether it’s about buying and selling memorabilia or embarking on wild adventures away from the store, the men of The Stash share all the juicy details with Kevin through their hilarious podcast, which is woven throughout the series.
