Don't Look Back - S1-E2

Trivia: When Hiro buys the comic book, he pays with a 1000 yen note, which is a typical price for manga in Japan. This translates into approximately $8.48 American. As a typical 2006 newsstand price for comics is about $2.99, the vendor actually got more than his money's worth.
