Haha, they can't even get the date correct. I'm assuming they mean that the comics will be available for download until Mid-January 2013. So they basically can't even be bothered to 'maintain' a static resource for the benefit of us users, something quite small in comparison to all the data stored for the games released on PS3.
I also guess that whatever Sony had planned for the comic store, because they did say they had something planned, when they announced that no more new comics would be added has also been scrapped based on this information.
I'm glad I didn't buy too many from the store now as this would annoy me even more. I guess it just helps me push towards my decision of going back to PC next console iteration.
