Criminal and Incognito have been delayed, they wont be on the store this week. Also Steve Niles wrote “Dead, She Said” above it reads as though he wrote Transformers.

Pardon my naiveté but if I purchased a comic for the PSP reader, would I be able to read it on an iPad as well? I know that the reader itself is different, but they are d/l from marvel.

Woot! Keep the Vampire Hunter D coming, please!

+ Onvertic on April 22nd, 2010 at 12:33 pm said:

@ #8

I’m pretty sure you can’t view it on the iPad. And it would be cool if you guys could make an e-reader.

+ Tridon on April 22nd, 2010 at 1:24 pm said:

YES! POWERS has arrived!!

I don’t own a PSP and I couldn’t download these if I wanted to (I’m Canadian) but I’m just happy knowing that more people now have the opportunity to catch up with one of the best comic books of the last decade. I highly recommend everyone to check it out!

Is there any way to find out how many issues of a series are forthcoming? For example, I want to buy the Star Trek movie adaptation, but I don’t want to do it until all of the issues are available.

@drfish62 ask @psncomics on twitter, sometimes they can give you info

Sony does have an e-reader. Why not extend the service there? No color on my pocket version sadly. Or how about a PS3 reader at least?

Eh alright this week.

Patiently waiting for the Grendel comics.

Grace, Great update. Any chance of running special’s like buy 10 get 1 free? Or subscription based pricing? Or hero of the month discounts? Also an e-reader app for the psp would be great. Thanks for supporting our favorite portable system.

+ WaveLightning777 on April 22nd, 2010 at 2:35 pm said:

Sonic the Hedgehog?

OMG YES. I used to read that series so much as a kid… hopefully we’ll be seeing more of the Blue Blur’s comic adventures!


23

+ Solid-Snake-Eyes on April 22nd, 2010 at 2:37 pm said:

I would be buying all the GI Joe comics among other things if they would put out this service in Canada. What’s the problem, you don’t have the CRTC ruining things here like they do for video content.

+ ski_bumm on April 22nd, 2010 at 3:33 pm said:

Sonic comics??! I love those classic issues. Way better than the canon in the terrible Sonic games released over the past 10 years… Antoine, Rotor, Sally… The REAL freedom fighters!

And the Saturday AM cartoon that mirrored it was amazing. Too bad I can’t get any of them in Canada. :(

+ Elric_X on April 22nd, 2010 at 3:39 pm said:

@tj5678: Great ideas. I was thinking along those ideas myself: Subscriptions and maybe some “deals”. I love the comics but I am Nickel and Diming myself to death buying these things.


26

+ ThreeLeggedFreak on April 22nd, 2010 at 3:42 pm said:

Things that are needed badly:

1)DC Comics
2)Original SCE comics (infamous, uncharted, free realms, god of war, etc)
3)More motion comics like Uncharted Eye of the Indra, Ironman, Spartacus
4)Make it like Minis and available on both PSP and PS3 (at 1080p)

Please add God of War comics…

+ tsukasa1288 on April 22nd, 2010 at 4:53 pm said:

Still waiting for manga. Come on I know you guys can get it if you try, why wouldn’t the publishers want more ways to sell their stuff?


31

+ dragongamer5894 on April 22nd, 2010 at 5:03 pm said:

Two requests though:
1. Bring in manga please!
2. Bring in more video game comics!

Other than that, this update is ok. I’m only interested in the Atomic Robo series.

Will canada have the comic section soon !? and movies … damn lol


33

+ Jeigh on April 22nd, 2010 at 8:13 pm said:

Oh, snap. Is that a Sonic comic? You have no idea how many of those I had at one point. I actually needed a dedicated shelf. I couldn’t actually tell you why I stopped reading them. It might have been the drastic change in art style a-ways down the line (I think around the time of the Dreamcast).

Super Sonic vs. Hyper Knuckles was freakin’ awesome though.
