Okay, so they're a little late again but the boys from A Comic Shop in Florida with Aaron and… wait a minute, something's changed… that's right, Mike has been replaced by Anna Young, the inspiration for Anna Mercury. And she's set to make big changes for the show. As in not just sitting next to Aaron and agreeing with him. Not all the time anyway… Welcome Anna.
And already it's a Batman Vs Wonder Woman war. I'm with Anna on this one, Aaron. Sorry.
We get two videos this week as well, one for your standard floppy comics, one for graphic novels.
