Purchasing Transformers Comics in Australia

Postby TransformerFan23 » Sun Sep 21, 2014 8:44 pm

Hi guys!

So I'm wondering where the best place to get Transformers comics are. (I'm in Brisbane, Australia)

Specifically, More Than Meets the Eye. It's awesome :) So I've read the first four tpb volumes (borrowed them from the library xD) and I'm interesting in getting the new issues, cause they sound AMAZING xD

Would my best bet be Comixology?

Thanks for the assist guys!

Comics, Etc on Elizabeth is the best one for trades (although the staff at Daily Planet are fabulous).

Hmm, thanks!

I might just go with Comixology though, it seems a bit cheaper xD

But thanks anyway!

Comixology is always a good bet, especially if you don't mind digital over paper (I suppose you can always get the classy hardcovers later down the line if you've got decent funds).

I have mine sent out each month from Classic Comics in Melbourne. I'm sure there are similar shops in Brisbane (or even Sydney).

As for catching up, buy the TPBs from Book Depository (as I'm doing right now for the Costa run). Less than $20 each, including postage.

Yeah Dan and others might have better ideas on brisbane or QLD weekly comic dealers - but if you just want to keep up and collect the trades Comixology is the best idea, especially with the download options now available.

Quite a number of fellow Australian TF readers here :D .

I just found this list on Google: http://www.the-master-list.com/International/Australia_&_New_Zealand/
There are a lot more comic shops in this country than I thought there were. Some of these seem to have closed down however, so I wouldn't say it's a thriving business.

I can verify most of the NSW ones in that list, but it is dated. Phantom Zone now only has a Parramatta store, they used to have Chatswood and Wollongong. Newcastle, Sydney and Liverpool also have the stores that are listed there.
