iFlashback! November 12th, 2003

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 November 12th, 2003. The number one film at the box office is The Matrix Revolutions and these are some of the comics at your local comic book shop.

That was the week that was in comics. The JSA had the JLA over for Thanksgiving, Green Arrow was the pick of the week, Ruse had an awesome cover. Did you read any of the comics that came out this week? If so let us know what you thought of them!


  1. I wonder where I was this week? I don’t remember any of these covers at all. Weird. Usually this feature jogs my memory, but this week must have been one small pull list for me. Some of these look pretty good, though! I guess I missed out 🙁

  2. Does the Atom remind anyone else of Buffalo Bill?

  3. I think the only one of these I read was JSA.

  4. I really dig that Hulk cover.

    I read Cap and JSA, and I’m pretty sure I read that Green Arrow.

  5. Man that was a great week of comics

  6. Great stuff with JSA & Ruse!!!

  7. That Green Arrow cover reminds me of a ZZ Top song!

  8. Oh don’t get me started on Matrix Revolutions. I was too young to be pissed at Star Wars Episode I but seeing how the Matrix ended its story pissed me off so much. If you played the ‘Path of Neo’ video game you’d see the Wachowski Bros alternate ending and that pissed me off even further.

  9. As far as I can recall, the plot of the Green Arrow book was that ex-junkie and all-round ladies man Roy Harper took chaste Conor Hawke out for a boys night on the town with strippers and booze.

    Hilarity ensued, but I don’t remember any hobos being beaten to death with dead alley cats. That came later.

    For the record, I always really liked Conor Hawke.
