Afternoon all! Hope you liked last week’s huge update, we have more for you this week including some comics you have been waiting for…

Digital_Comics_Store_10_13_10

First off, a brand new Transformers series, Transformers: Drift, starts with issue #1. This four-part mini-series chronicles Drift’s origins as the Decepticon Dreadlock (!) and how he became an Autobot. In this first part Drift attempts to uncover the secret behind his mysterious rescuers… with shocking results!

We also have more Y: The Last Man in store for you with issue #9 out this week. Yorick finally uncovers the dark secrets his hosts have been hiding, and he’s also unexpectedly reunited with someone from his past… I’m not telling you who!

DC’s brilliant series Sandman also continues with issues #4 and #5. Morpheus travels to Hell and then has a pretty tumultuous encounter with Dr. Destiny, who has his eye on something that doesn’t belong to him… Guest-starring Mister Miracle and Martian Manhunter!

And for Batman fans we have three nice additions this week: Batman #676 and #677, starting the “Batman: R.I.P.” story arc… Another pretty epic storyline as you can guess! Superman/Batman is also back with issue #32, part 5 of “The Enemies Among Us” – where a crazed Superman goes against a super-powered Batman.

Also in this week is a brand new series from Markosia, Hero 9 to 5. This very fresh take on superheroes is set in a world where being one is just a job, and where the rich can afford the best heroes and the poor get the government sponsored agency… “Heroes for Zeros”! On their payroll is Jacob Reilly, a regular guy who just happens to be able to shoot flames from his hands, and whose girlfriend is also his alter-ego’s nemesis! All four issues available now.

And finally, Disney are bringing a very nice adaptation of the animated movie Up to the store. To escape a life in a retirement home, budding great explorer Carl rigs his house into a hot-air balloon, and steals away… with an unexpected stowaway on board! Fantastic story which is worth a read.

The software needed to read these appears to be only for PC and not Mac. Is there a way to view these on my PS3 system?

You guys should post this without a time stamp because it is usually the last post of the day but still finds itself under older blog entries. Which explains it’s low comment count.

Either way happy to see Y: The Last Man back will be picking that up.

I agree with The1stMJC.

How can you expect people to know about what’s happening with the Comic Store if you post the information under old post. I have notice that you do this with Video Store as well.

Is there a reason for this?

Sadly, I’ve given up on the digital comic store. I was excited to see the new IDW G.I. Joe line on there a while back and bought every one of them, plus all the spinoffs from the PSN Store . . . then, a couple of months ago, the updates for that line basically stopped. The store is now far, FAR behind the print series, so much so that I can’t imagine they will ever actually catch up. Whether this is an issue on IDW’s part of Sony’s, it ends up being a moot point for me, as I’m not going to be reading any ongoing series via the digital comic store when I can’t rely on the store to actually keep up with the series I’m trying to read. (Not to mention that the cover images were frequently wrong on that series, as well.)
