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 September 24th, 2003. The number one film at the box office is Underworld and these are some of the comics at your local comic book shop.

That was the week that was in comics. Batman #619 was the best selling and most anticipated book of the month. It was the conclusion of the polarizing Hush storyline and it got two wraparound covers. I bought the villains one. Alan Moore had a comic out. I also remember my friend raving about Wake the Dead claiming it was going to be bigger than The Walking Dead, which had also just arrived. Alright folks, did you read any of these? If so let us know.
