NYCC 2015: Kevin Smith on Comic Book Men

Posted on

Despite his work on Clerks, Mallrats, and Chasing Amy, Kevin Smith says he’s become known for his time on AMC’s Comic Book Men.

“Little kids come to me and go ‘You’re Kevin from Comic Book Men‘ like that’s my whole name because they watch it with their parents,” Smith told EW at Comic-Con in New York.

Smith and the Comic Book Men crew shared some guests who’ll be joining the gang at Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash in season 5, including William Shatner and the man behind Chewbacca, Peter Mayhew. There will also be an all-Jaws episode on the reality show, which Smith calls a combination of Clerks in a comic book store and a comic book version of Pawn Stars.

“It’s kind of nice to arrive at a place where the rest of the world’s arrive at a little bit early,” Smith says. “Just to be that much ahead of the curve.”

Comic Book Men season 5 begins Oct. 18 at 12 a.m. ET on AMC.
