Digital Comics Store Update (9th March 2011)

Hi everyone, and welcome to the weekly comics update. We have 70 comics for you today, and a lot of highlights!

Blog Post 2011-03-08

Based on the acclaimed open-world PS3 game, the inFAMOUS comic is out today! Published by DC Comics, this 6-part series is written by inFAMOUS game writer William Harms (Impaler) and illustrated by Eric Nguyen (Halo: Helljumper, Strange Girl). While delivering a mysterious package, bike courier Cole MacGrath is caught in a massive explosion that gives him electric superpowers. As his world collapses around him, Cole must defend himself and his city from government forces that’ll stop at nothing to capture him.

The first Transformers 3 Movie Prequel begins here! In Foundation #1, the origin of the bitter rivalry between Optimus Prime and Megatron starts here – but what is the secret connection that will forever bind them? And how will it affect the future of all Transformers? Also available today is Rising Storm #1, featuring fan-favorite SHOCKWAVE entering the scene in a major way just in time for his role in Transformers 3.

Three more Sonic The Hedgehog comics to add to your collection with issues #141, #142 and #143. Sonic, with Knuckles and Team Chaotix, travels to the Robotnik-Controlled Angel Island after learning that Knuckles’ father, Locke, is being held captive. How will they free Locke? And what if the only way to do so is to team-up with your worst enemies?

Witness the start of an explosive new era in the Avengers mythos in Dark Avengers (2009)! Who are the Dark Avengers? Who is the Iron Patriot? The answers will shock you! Brought to you by Brian Michael Bendis and Mike Deodato Jr, and with issues #1 to #6 out today.

I bought those two Transformers movie comics issue 1’s in paper format a week or so ago and they’re both very good. I’d be happy enough to buy them digitally too if I could run them on both my PSP aaand PS3 :D

Hey Pauline,

Good to see a day-one release of the inFAMOUS comic, although there is a considerable disparity between the price of the digital/print versions.
Any chance of seeing series 2 of Victorian Undead soon?

Hi divine1000! Currently the inFAMOUS comic is at the same price in print and digital ($2.99 / £3.19), so it’s a case of matching prices I guess. No news on VU2, I will ask!

No Spidey!!!!!

I guess inFAMOUS makes up for it. Would be nice to see what Cole has been up to, aside from facial reconstruction and rhinoplasty, and then reverse facial reconstruction. ;-P

Thanks Pauline!

Hope you enjoy inFAMOUS!

Very nice update this week, though I’m always disappointed when I see DC going for that £3.19 price point for same day print/digital releases so I’ll be keep my money and buying inFamous #1 in four weeks time when the price drops.

Any news on a fix for the audio commentary in Slaughterman’s Creed #1 Pauline? Also, the audio commentary has been missing from a few issues of Eternal Descent and I’m wondering is that the same problem, where the audio was in the file but it wouldn’t show up?

We are looking into Slaughterman’s Creed, I believe we will have a solution soon so I will post here when we do. Sorry for the inconvenience…
As for Etarnal Descent, issues #1-4 have commentary but #5 doesn’t – do you have issues with #1-4?

Yes Still her and asking, still hoping it gets here soon, since it is not over before you give up:

The good old questions:
Release in Scandinavia/rest of EU?
Comics reader for PS3 (ofcourse this should only come AFTER rest of EU gets acces to the store).
And Crossregion gifting?

No news sorry!

yay, comics!!
i asked for bundles and we got em, now, next week’s lottery numbers would be nice. ^_^

i wonder why archie decided to skip a hundred and forty or so issues of the sonic comic, i could understand if they jumped to the latest issues but they’re up over 200 now i think.

still, i so tempted to buy them anyway. :)

i didn’t know dc would be holding the price of those same day comics for four weeks before dropping them to normal price, just had a look and the first issue of dc universe is now £1.19, instead of £3.19.
so while the higher price is disappointing, at least i know can just wait a while.

Er ok, I’ll see what I can do. :D

Hi , Can you please include Facebook App for PS3 (and PSP if possible) !! Cause it’s really hard to use facebook on PS3 browser !! and we can’t even chat using the browser !! Please !! It will really boost up the use of PS3 !! and am 100% sure almost more than half of PS3 users are going to like it and use it !!!

Besides, great InFamous Comic and I can’t read it :(

Hello. As the little flag next to my nickname indicates , I am a greek psn user. I am pretty sure that we wont get a comic store in greek so I was wondering why can’t we use greek psn cards to buy comics from the us store for example. I mean, is it so difficult for sony to have a default store for countries that they don’t have their own psn store? Thanks in advance.

Hi DeadlyNade – it looks unlikely that we will have a store in Greece, and I’m sorry for that. :-( As for the PSN cards, your best bet would be to go on the PlayStation forum and ask that question, as unfortunately I can’t help you. Good luck!

You go from Sonic Issue 4 straight to 141? Any reason why 137 Issues have been skipped? :(

Pauline Martyn 11 March, 2011 @ 11:18

I’m not sure sorry!

Please, add all the comics to the french PSN store, even if not translated !

We would love to, but we would need a French PSN store and unfortunately we are not getting one… Sorry Nonos!
