Digital Comics Store Update

Grace Chen's Avatar + Posted by Grace Chen on Feb 23, 2011 // Sr. Director, PlayStation Store

Hi All! New publisher alert and many more highlights in this week’s comic update.

Blog Post 2011-02-22

New publisher alert part 2! This week we are delighted to welcome another great publisher on board: Zenescope. Zenescope has created one of the fastest growing libraries of original content and has brought an exciting new feel to the world of graphic novels – and of fairy tales… with a twist! Adapted from the famous TV Series, Charmed #1 brings Phoebe, Paige and Piper back to embrace a new life… and new enemies. Grimm Fairy Tales is a gripping series retelling the most well-known and beloved childhood tales with very modern heroines – through reality and fairy tale, and good and evil. Another great tale is revisited in Neverland – a land that has changed dramatically and where good and evil are not what they seem. Last but not least is the gritty horror comic The Waking, a race against time to investigate murdered victims seemingly rising from the dead to avenge their own deaths… Brr.

If you missed it last week, I would like to highlight once again Devil’s Due Digital. Devil’s Due Digital is a collaboration of the team at Checker Book Publishing Group & Devil’s Due Publishing, and together they are offering an immense library of talent including Clive Barker, Johnny Hart, Tim Seeley and Alan Moore. They brought us the much loved Hack/Slash last week, and this week it’s the no-less impressive Clive Barker’s Hellraiser! Experience horror as only Clive Barker knows it, with the adaptation of one of the most popular horror movie series of all time. Featuring short stories from some of the best in the comics industry, this series both shocked and entertained readers – try it if you dare.

Do you like dimension-spanning storylines, especially if they involve some of the most famous characters in the comic’s world? Check out Infestation, the IDW event ten years in the making, featuring Transformers, G.I. Joe, Ghostbusters, Star Trek, and even some cool zombies! Something goes horribly awry in the Zombies vs. Robots universe, threatening to tear many of IDW’s biggest realities asunder… Who will be affected, and how?

More Batman! Batman Beyond Vol.2, based on the hit animated TV series, begins this week! In the distant future, Bruce Wayne has retired from crime fighting, and a new breed of criminals has overrun Gotham City. Now Bruce must train Terry McGinnis to use a futuristic Bat-suit and become tomorrow’s Dark Knight!

In Supernatural: Beginning’s End, written by Peter Johnson, one of the TV series co-executive producer, The Winchesters’ hunt nears its end…in New York! You knew Sam left his family to attend Stanford…learn why he made that choice! This gripping, horrifying story—courtesy of TV series writers Andrew Dabb and Daniel Loflin—will explore the raw nerves of what makes the Winchesters unique and volatile.

Grace be honest, are sales really that good for these comics? Don’t you think they would be a lot more popular if the PS3 got a comics app? What is stopping Sony and Marvel from coming together on this? I would buy many more comics if they had PS3 AND PSP support

Otherwise these posts are mostly a waste of time for most people. I know you probably won’t reply since you never do.

ok here is the broken record again…..WHEN IS THIS COMING TO CANADA? most other countries either have it or at least have some sort of ETA. I also agree that an app on the ps3 would be good (like the psone games and minis)

Back when the Comics launched the department running it said that Canada was in ‘phase two’ of the roll out and intimated that this would be in about 6 months. Kindly update us..really…this is a customer service issue not a state secret.

Bring it to PS3. The Infamous comic is coming out so you can release that digitally and hype it up for the PS3 version of the Digital Comics Store.
