In The Sopranos, season five episode 11 ("The Test Dream"), some comics are visible in one scene.

On the DVD, in chapter 3, Tony Soprano has a conversation with his cousin, Tony B. Tony B. sits down, realizes he has sat on something, picks up the items he has sat on (which include two or three comic books), and sets them to one side. The comics are most clearly visible at about 11:18.

The most visible comic is identifiable as Freex #6 (Dec. 1993), from the Ultraverse line published by Malibu. The story makes it clear that the comics belong to Tony B.'s sons, about eight years old. I guess we're not meant to look too hard at the comic because, to me, the notion of eight-year-olds in 2004 (the year the episode aired) reading a little-remembered comic from 1993 doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

There is at least one comic behind the Freex issue. The bottom and right edge of the front cover are visible. Is there anyone with Sopranos DVDs, a high-def TV, and an outstanding memory of comics covers that can identify that one?
