Jeffrey takes a look at the massively popular comic book industry. Domestic sales of comics and graphic novels have been rising for years and with Hollywood doubling down on comic book franchises we’ll likely see even more growth this year.

How can they disrupt the industry? Omar Spahi founder of OSSM Comics answers those questions and more.
Omar Spahi is the Derek Hough of real estate. He was most recently seen in the hit series Million Dollar Listing and impressed America with his work ethic and incredible knowledge of the field. Seeing him in action is incredible, but to know him is an honor.
During our conversation, not only did I learn a lot about real estate, but I also got to know Omar as a person. Not only is he a dedicated and passionate worker, but he is also one of the most respectful, intelligent men I have ever met. He spoke very highly of Ryan and Amelia (two of the amazing people he worked with on the show) as well as other people he has worked with, past and present. He says he has nothing but the upmost respect for people and tries to treat everyone, in every situation, in the classiest way possible.
Comics are an expansive medium, one that encompasses millions of fans around the world covering all types of genres.

Spahi is the CEO and creator of OSSM Comics, a company which has a diverse portfolio that includes Xenoglyphs, Thaniel, Terminarch, and the recently released Hadrians Wall -- a title being co-published by Image Comics.
