A Comic Show – The Incredibles Meets Pet Sematary

Anna and Aaron from A Comic Shop in Florida flips through tomorrow's comics today and they both enjoy Action Comics #2, Swamp Thing #2 and Animal Man #2, and divide over Detective Comics #2 and Red Lanterns #2. Guess how.

And Anna pushes Last Of The Greats from Image despite Aaron's protestations. Less so over Axe Cop… and not once mention of a Marvel comic.

Is that a first?
