Digital Comics Store Update (1st June 2011)

Comics Update 3.6.11

Hi everyone, and welcome back to the comics updates! Let’s catch-up with a whopping 154 new comics today.

The saga of the Transformers’ secret war on Earth begun in The Transformers: Infiltration continues with Phase Two: Transformer: Escalation. With the monumental menaces of MEGATRON and Ore-13 looming, the AUTOBOTS could be forgiven for thinking things couldn’t get much worse. But they might be wrong! All 6 issues of this mini-series available today.

Orson Scott Card,’s epic sci-fi saga Ender’s Game starts today with Ender’s Game (2008): Battle School, as well as parallel series Ender’s Shadow (2008): Battle School. There’s a war coming, and the same aliens who almost destroyed Earth once are coming back to finish the job. Who can help? According to the military, 8-year-old Ender Wiggin, who enters the mysterious training facility Battle School…

Fans of Star Trek and fans of awesome vintage comics, this one is for you: started in 1967, the same year the original television series premiered , the original Star Trek comics series continue here with 34 issues!

    Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sorry everyone… with all the hectic Store activity going on I was a bit hasty and published this a week early. This content will actually be available next week. Sorry for any confusion – I though it would be better to let you know rather than just take the post down once we realised the mistake.

TroubleMaker411 3 June, 2011 @ 2:03 pm   2

All the best Pauline.
Moving onto bigger and better things?

    Pauline Martyn 3 June, 2011 @ 5:20 pm    

    Hopefully, although I’ll miss a lot of things, including you guys. Boo!
    But anyhoo – many thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

Carnivius_Prime 3 June, 2011 @ 2:17 pm   3

Aw, I don’t see any 11th Doctor Who comics in there. Got my money saved up for the ones that were meant to be out during the PSN downtime unless they’re in the next catch up pack or haven’t yet been added to this list at the time I read it.

Anyways good luck with whatever you’re moving onto, Pauline ๐Ÿ™‚

    Pauline Martyn 3 June, 2011 @ 5:22 pm    

    Don’t worry, there’s more coming. ๐Ÿ˜‰ We have some great (and hefty) updates for you guys in the next few weeks.
    Thanks very much Carnivius Prime! ๐Ÿ™‚ Take care

Will the store finally be released to the rest of the European countries that do not have access as part of the goodwill program?

When will Norway/Rest of Europe get access?
Cross region gifting option?
PS3 comics reader? (after the release in other countries part)

    Pauline Martyn 3 June, 2011 @ 5:24 pm    

    So! – no new stores as previously – no plans – no plans – no plans.

i want to add this Alarm me 1st MB then pauline i know ppl move on but in pre E3 week not good who esle is leaving please step forwand. ๐Ÿ˜€


Sad to see you going. I hope whoever takes over does just a good job. Shame there were no comics in the welcome back pack, I think the more people that use the service the more likely we are to get other regions and ps3 reader. Good luck.

    Pauline Martyn 3 June, 2011 @ 5:26 pm    

    Thanks Mulukh, makes me a little sad too… But I’m sure they will!
    All the best.

    Pauline Martyn 3 June, 2011 @ 5:27 pm    

    Yay, we’re back (next Wednesday)!
    There’s a lot coming through in the next few weeks, so get your PSP ready! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    And thank you for the kind words, I’m sad too… Will miss you guys! Thanks very much, and take care! ๐Ÿ™‚

Best wishes for your future endeavours Pauline, always looked forward to your weekly updates.

Not sure whether we should begin to worry about the relevance of your departure though, I hope the Comic Store/app is going to be sticking around a while longer, specifically with regards to NGP.

    Pauline Martyn 7 June, 2011 @ 4:13 pm    

    Many thanks, very nice of you to say! ๐Ÿ™‚
    The store will definitely be here for a while longer.

Woo! Excited for new Locke and Key ๐Ÿ™‚ Not sure if it will be there next Wednesday,bit confused with the comic site :S But I’ll be here when it’s out. Best of luck with what you’ve got planned ahead Pauline ๐Ÿ™‚

    Pauline Martyn 7 June, 2011 @ 4:14 pm    

    It will be here tomorrow… Locke & Key is so good! ๐Ÿ˜€
    Many thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

I really appreciate the fact that you are leaving this post on the blog, rather than taking it off for a week.

KaiserSoza13 5 June, 2011 @ 1:33 am   12

Thanks for all the comics,hope they put you in charge of the PS1 section as you are the only one that would be able to fix it.
