The Hall H Show podcast talked with Forbes writer and author, Rob Salkowitz at San Diego Comic-Con 2018. This episode is also available on Google Play, iTunes, Stitcher, iHeart Radio and Spotify. The Hall H Show podcast is hosted by Aaron Nabus and Alex Benedicto.
Aaron Nabus here and one my personal heroes when it comes to covering pop culture and comic books is Forbes writer and author of the book, “Comic-Con and the Business of Pop Culture,” Rob Salkowitz
On this episode, which was recorded at San Diego Comic-Con 2018, we got to talk about one of his favorite comics, “The Spirit” by Will Eisner, which was given to him by his father; his connection to underground comic legend, Dennis Kitchen; his journey to becoming a writer for Forbes; the future of comics and how we can be better advocates for diversity.
As someone who has been coming to San Diego Comic-Con since the late 90’s, watching it explode from 35,000 to well over 135,000 attendees in less than a decade, it was great to hear Rob’s perspective.
He also gives us some pro tips to have a better experience at San Diego Comic-Con.

If you happen to be at a convention and he’s moderating a panel, go check it out! He is an excellent panel moderator. One minute he’s doing a Q and A with Karen Berger and another he’s doing a Shark Tank type panel for pop culture entrepreneurs.
Thanks again for being on the Hall H Show, Rob and I look forward to our next conversation!
