Season 2, Episode 16
Ming plans a surprise for Walt's anniversary at The Stash, and learns the virtue of patience.
Comic Book Men returns to AMC Sunday, February 14 at Midnight/11c.
To commemorate Walt’s 15th anniversary of running the Secret Stash, Ming plans an outing that involves Walt’s favorite sports team, the New Jersey Devils. Walt, Ming, Bryan and Michael travel to the Devils’ home ice, the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, where (thanks to Kevin's NHL connections) they are greeted by four retired players who were members of Stanley Cup-winning Devils teams: Jim Dowd, Bruce Driver, Grant Marshall and Ken Daneyko. After Walt meets his heroes, everyone hits the ice, and Bryan dons goalie gear and attempts to block shots by Walt and the players. Separately, Walt allows Ming to negotiate the purchase of a limited edition 3-D Batman Shadow Box, buys a The Lord of the Rings animation cel from the 1978 movie (after an appraisal by Robert Bruce), and flips a copy of Giant-Size X-Men #1 signed by illustrator David Cockrum.
