Aaron of A Comic Shop in Florida is sad for only making it to New York Comic Con for one day (and missing me) but he has a whole new week’s worth of comics to share with Anna. Who is taken over to the dark side and likes Justice League #2.
We have Batman #2 and Wonder Woman #2 praised to the rafters – and Green Lantern Corps #2 looks like it may be much gorier than even the first issue.
And then there’s the ickyickyickyness of Neonomicon in trade paperback too…
