It’s time for iFlashback! A weekly feature in which we take a look at some comics that were on sale nine years ago. Why nine years and not ten? Well because our Mondays in 2012 sync up with the Wednesdays of 2003.
So jog down memory lane with me. The date is July 2nd, 2003. The number one film in the box office was the Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle! These are some of the comics at your local comic book shop.

That was the week that was July 2nd, 2003. What an eclectic mix! You got Spider-Girl the book that wouldn’t die. Bendis and Bagley were so good on Ultimate Spider-Man. Also, Alan Scott was in that Ed Brubaker story arc of Detective Comics. It was good stuff. And who can forget Trouble? Very controversial book of that year. Let me know your thoughts on these!
