Royal Collectibles featured in Prime Studios’ documentary!

Steven Biscotti featured in Prime Studios’ Royal Collectibles documentary.

Last month I had the great opportunity to speak with a friend and customer, Justyn Candelaria, in regards to his documentary he wished to film for his class final. Royal Collectibles is a special place for me, especially as it’s been my local comic shop since they first opened doors in the early 90’s. You could view the documentary below!

To be able to speak about everyone’s friendly neighborhood comic shop (we are located in Forest Hills, after all!) brought me sincere joy and I hope you have fun watching. Justyn Candelaria created a fun and entertaining documentary that is very much a lover letter to Royal Collectibles and I’m honored to be a small part in a store that means so much to so many.

You could find Justyn Candelaria, on Instagram, at @primecriticentertainment in which he discusses all the things in pop culture film and tv that we enjoy, along with endeavoring to review every single episode of one of his favorite shows, “The Orville.
