It’s time for an iFlashback, a weekly feature in which we take a look at some comics that were on sale nine years ago. Why nine and not ten? Our Mondays and Wednesdays used to sync up, but 2004 was a leap year so we are off by a day.
Jog down memory lane with me. The date is August 18th, 2004 the number one film at the box office is Alien vs Predator and these are some of the books that are on the stands at your local comic shop.
