A Comic Show #6 – Anally Retentive

Aaron and Mike from A Comic Shop look through this week's comics for Bleeding Cool. I love these guys. I want to take them home and have them comment on my life. It would be hilarious and also slightly disturbing. Anyway, remember that opening scene from Four Weddings And A Funeral? this is a bit like that.

JONAH HEX 1

He's a cowboy with an effed up face who doesn't sleep with monkey-toe-thumb megan fox as much as you'd think.

Aaron's Note: If I started a country band, I'd call them the Hexmen, inspired by the Protomen, but instead of Mega Man we would only sing songs inspired by the single issue stories of Jimmy Palmiotti!
