Digital Comics Store Update

Grace Chen's Avatar + Posted by Grace Chen on Mar 16, 2011 // Sr. Director, PlayStation Store

Hello dear readers, here’s your comic update with 62 cool new comics this week and a bonus treat for DC’s Bayou fans.

Digital Comics 3.16.11

In Batman Black & White, DC proudly pays tribute to the past, recapturing the classic spirit of black & white comic book storytelling. Centered on the Dark Knight, this series features a stellar line-up of creators contributing 8-page stories to each issue in a rich variety of styles, tones and textures, all with an innate pulp fiction feel. Issue #1, featuring a cover by Jim Lee, includes the work of Jose Muñoz, Joe Kubert, Ted McKeever, Howard Chaykin, and Bruce Timm. I cannot recommend this stunning comic enough!

IDW’s brilliant Infestation series continues with Infestation: Transformers #2. Zombies are the latest show on the Vegas Strip, and it’s going to be an action-packed battle of machine and mayhem to get this town cleaned up!

In the fallout from HOUSE OF M a new mutant team is forged… X-Factor! X-Factor (2005) introduces the investigative mutant agency including Madrox — the Multiple Man, Guido — the Strong Guy, Wolfsbane — the shape-shifter, Siryn — the chorus girl, Rictor—the living earthquake, and GENERATION X’s Monet—the pompous witch. Drawn together in the heart of District X, this rag-tag band of heroes has a lot of answers to find, and fast!

Fearsome acrobatics, ingenuity and waffles are also on the menu in Devil’s Due Digital Ninja Town, Zenescope’s Grimm Fairy Tales continue with a modern take on The Robber Bridegroom, and other highlights include more Spider-Man, Wonder Woman, Silent Hill, Dungeons & Dragons and many more.

We are also very excited to bring you a Q&A session with Bayou creator Jeremy Lowe!

“The mind behind the hauntingly epic digital comic series, Bayou is ready to take your questions.

Bayou has been tantalizing the PlayStation Network with each release from the acclaimed DC Digital series. Writer Jeremy Love weaves a eery tale of Lee Wagstaff traveling to a twisted version of her 1930’s, Mississippi town to find her friend before Lee’s father is wrongly lynched for kidnapping.

In this other world, Lee meets a blues-singing, swamp monster, named Bayou and the infamous Brer Rabbit who help her on her grave mission. The story of Bayou is an imaginative epic covering some sensitive issues, so the creator is taking questions before he heads to sunny San Francisco as a guest of WonderCon.

Just head over to the official PlayStation Forums here to submit your query. It can be anything you like – we’re especially keen to see some really unusual questions. We’ll then pick the best ones, put them to the DC Digital creator and publish his answers right here on the PlayStation blog.

Alternatively, Tweet your question using the Twitter hashtag #dcdigital.

Leave your questions at community.eu.playstation.com before 22nd March 2011.”

I love the comics store, but I really wish there was a way to easily delete comics instead of having to plug my psp into my computer and delete them that way.

Can we please get the comic store in other regions?

I’m in Hong Kong. We love comics, it’s an Asian thing, and yet there’s no comic store on PS3 or PSP

Dear Sony Comics:

I’m an American that will only purchase Japanese Manga. A LARGE market share (especially Sony fans) highly prefer JAPANESE MANGA over American style comics. I will religiously buy any Japanese Manga you put up…Feel free to automatically charge my credit card on file.

Just think it would be a highly profitable untapped comic genre. Of course, some unknown legal/translation issues may be at play here beyond my scope of vision. Perhaps it has been hindered by unsubstantiated market research and complex cultural preferences on appropriate comic content.

Thanks a million!
Graywolffe

No comics in Hong Kong!?! Wow, talk about an untapped market of millions. Hopefully they will fix that soon for all of you out there on the other side of the ocean.
