Digital Comics Store Update

Grace Chen's Avatar + Posted by Grace Chen on Jul 28, 2010 // Director, PlayStation Store

We’ve got a huge update this week for the PlayStation Store Digital Comics. First off, you can now buy a complete digital comic series or story arcs. This is perfect for all of you comic readers who want to buy a full series rather than have to buy each issue individually. Plus when you purchase a comic bundle you’ll get it at a lower price than you would if you bought each issue individually. The full list of PlayStation Comic Store ‘Bundles’ is noted below.

New Release highlights:

comics

We have two more free comics from DC this week. The first: Bottle of Awesome #1. Billy Butterman is a loser, a putz. High school is a total nightmare: all the cool guys pick on him, girls ignore him. That is, until the day he encounters a mysterious hobo, who urges him into drink from a bottle of awesome. However, he warns Billy not to drink too much, for a person can become too awesome. Will Billy heed his words?

The second free comic introduces us to the world of Ex Machina which Publishers Weekly described as “…half X-Files, half West Wing and 100% genius”. EX MACHINA is far from a traditional “cape and tights” adventure story. It is a sophisticated superhero story for readers who are sceptical of anyone who can jump over a building in a single bound.

IDW continues the epic tale of Dragon Age, the second issue is out now! We also see Jurassic Park #1 – It’s been 13 years since little Tim and Lex Murphy escaped from the island of Isla Sorna, and recent public opinion has reversed, with the world clamouring for authorities to re-open Jurassic Park! With the help of their controversial Granddad’s inheritance and their own sharp wits, a secret deal is struck to open a new park! This time they’ll get it right…right? Bob Schreck makes his writing debut on this all-new tale, under covers from fellow industry legends Frank Miller and Tom Yeates!

From Marvel this week we have more Daredevil and all six issues of The Infinity Gauntlet which happens to be one of the best stories Marvel has ever told.

Disney fans should be happy with Pocahontas. Or if you are after something more mature then check out Markosia’s beautifully disturbing Breathe #1.

YES! I have been asking for bundles for awhile. Keep up the good work.
Now I will maybe hold back on some individual purchases and wait for some bundles, but will be picking up a bundle or 2 today.

Sony are you ever going to add a Digital Comics app for the PS3? It seems like a no-brainer to me. It’s like you have a money phobia or something. Talk with Marvel, DC etc.. and make it happen please.

Bring back Sonic comics…?

INFINITY GAUNTLET!!!!! Will be getting that. Thanos is by far my favorite character, possibly tied with Wolverine. I really hope MARVEL digitally released the prelude to Infinity Gauntlet: Thanos Quest. What an awesome story that is along with Infinity Gauntlet.

I also hope this mean MARVEL will be digitally releasing many of the Thanos epics, preferably MARVEL: THE END, Infinity Abyss and Thanos 1-12 which were incredible stories, seeing Thanos as an anti-hero instead of a villain.

Also….Wolverine: THE END please!!!

Great update, but please allow us to view the comics on our pc’s and ps3s as well. I love my psp, but I don’t want to invest a lot of money in digital content that I may not be able to use in the future (if and when the psp becomes obsolite). Glad to see the bundles. Keep up the good work.

Love the bundle packs. Thank you for the final issue of Hope Falls! And Infinity Gauntlet! Wow! I haven’t read that since it came out – And will likely be the first Marvel comics I buy. THANK YOU!

It’s a shame, that Comics are only released here in US. A lot of users I know from Europe would like to have them aswell, but I don’t think it will ever happen.

Heyas, any chance in the future we could have the bundles in a separate section with each noting the price and which comics exactly are included? Thanks! This week seems pretty excellent for comics.

You know, when I first heard about the Digital Comics when they first came out, I thought it was the dumbest, lamest thing I ever heard of…man, how I have to eat my words on that thought.

I figured “Hey, I’ll try a few of the freebies”; and that was it, I became a fan real quick.

Once again, great update and thanks for the great reads, especially Star Treks…love them!
