Digital Comics Store Update (6th April 2011)

Blog Post 2011-04-04

Hello and welcome to this week’s comic update!

The terrifying world of Resident Evil returns to comics with Resident Evil Vol. 2! The dedicated agents of the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance face off against Virus-spreading bio-weapons both in space and on land. The Joint Nations Space Station has gone offline; BSAA Agent Mina Gere investigates and is confronted by a crew of flesh-eating bio-weapons; veteran mercenary Holiday Sugarman is sent to remote Grezbekistan, and his team won’t be around for much longer… A new chapter in the Resident Evil saga kicks off with a bang!

Our next highlight is an all-new beginning for the book that Wizard calls “the best original concept from Marvel in thirty years!”… Runaways (2005) is on! A group of teenagers discovers that their parents are actually super-villains, and they run away from home… only to find that nearly every bad guy in the Marvel Universe is trying to fill the power vacuum in Los Angeles, and they are the only ones who can stop them!

Many of you will remember the mighty animation team Voltron – a team of talented pilots commanding robot lions to fight evil. Find out in Voltron: Defender of the Universe how the five maverick pilots were chosen for the mission to bring back the legendary Voltron… and how a distant alien princess knew they were coming. Fans will know the characters, but now writer Dan Jolley and artists Mark Brooks and Clayton Brown uncover their never before seen origins.

Let’s not forget Doctor Who, who is back this week with two more issues of Doctor Who Volume 2. If you missed last week’s update, we have tons more Doctor Who comics for you to try – so visit our store or our website for more details.

So, new ones i want, ill go buy. oh, wait.. not avavible due to poor leadership in the Upper management.

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?

yay, comics ^_^

runaways has always been a quality book, so it’s good to see more.
any runaways bundles heading our way?

and i’m always glad to see a new issue of azure.

other than that we have the usual high quality selection we’ve come to expect.

Thanks HazelAM! :-)
No Runaways bundle planned yet sorry – I’ll see what we can do for later on…
Enjoy the comics and thanks for the support as always!

Runaways was a very enjoyable book except for the last volume.

Cheers for more Doctor Who.

Pauline Martyn 06 April, 2011 @ 17:43

Hm I don’t remember the last one, I’ll have another read… Hope you like the 2005 series.
You’re welcome – and there’s more coming! ;-)

As excellent as the comic store is, it has started to cut in to my actual gaming budget how much I have been spending on comics. Undecided if this truly is a problem though :D

Always looking forward to the possibility of a greater amount of Manga, specifically Ghost in the Shell. Not so subtle hint… :P

Pauline Martyn 06 April, 2011 @ 17:44

Has it now… Mwahaha. :D
Hehe, hint noted – would love to have this on the service too!


Great to see the Resi series make an appearance, any chance of getting the Resident Evil: Fire & Ice graphic novel too?
Seeing as we got the Dead Space graphic novel a couple of weeks ago; could we also have the DS series (Ben Templesmith), including the rare DS: Extraction issue.

Thank’s Pauline.

Might be my hayfever ridden eyes, but are we missing a couple of Hack/Slash issues – 7-9?

Shou_Kobayashi 08 April, 2011 @ 15:35

Can we really get comics or at least get rid of the useless comics app in the XMB. At least for the rest of us. Thank you.
