Aaron and Tri-Force Mike from A Comic Shop in Orlando, Florida, break open the new year with their love of $2.99 comics and a look at the comics coming out this week, in their beating hands. well ahead of the lot of you.

And they don’t care.

But they do care about the white icon covers to flick through, love for Batman Beyond, Superboy, the reason Steel is a one shot, Captain America, Walking Dead, Black Heart Billy, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, a phone call from DC, and buttons.
