If you were worried Apple might not have a keynote at WWDC this year, you can finally relax. But don’t get too relaxed: Comixology’s pulling controversial comics again, and iPhone repair costs are up, up, up. The remainders for Thursday, May 23, 2013 are powered by the Infinite Improbability Drive.

Phew. For a minute, I was really worried that they might decide to hold it a week later, just to mess with people.
ComiXology pulls 56 digital comics from iOS app [Updated] (ComicBookResources)
The digital comics provider says it has pulled 56 releases from its catalog because they didn’t meet App Store content guidelines. Of course, Comixology said the same thing when it removed Saga #12 last month, but it turned out that Comixology had done so without Apple’s involvement. Either way, maybe stick to paper comics for a little while longer?
