Digital Comics Store Update

VP, PlayStation Network

Adding to the 2000+ titles already in the catalog, another 43 titles hit the Digital Comics Store this week, featuring everyone’s favorite heroes, villains and sixteenth-century bards. Happy hunting!


Here are this week’s top picks:

PSP-owning LARP fans can now get their fix of Dungeons & Dragons with a new series based on the hugely -popular role-playing game. Written by Transformers screenwriter John Rogers and novelist Alex Irvine, issue #0 is a special edition featuring two stories to introduce you to the upcoming D&D worlds. Acclaimed Marvel alumni Andrea Di Vito (Annihilation 2006) and Peter Bergting provide the outstanding art.

Yet more bloodthirsty vampire action hits the Digital Comics store this week with Zuda’s Blood Hunter. In a dark future, vampires rule the world, the life of the last human on earth – a baby girl – rests in the hands of a vampire sworn to kill her kind. Issue #1 is a free download.

Marvel’s 1952-vintage Journey Into Mystery – the series that introduced the Mighty Thor to a cowering world – continues its run with issues #87-#90, lovingly created by the Lee/Kirby dream team.

Following on from last month’s release of Silent Hill: Dying Inside, Among the Damned is another tale of bone-chilling horror guaranteed to thrill fans of the video game. Written by best-selling author Scott Ciencin and featuring art by Shaun Thomas, Silent Hill: Among the Damned is a special one-shot edition that will have you sleeping with the lights on. Be afraid.

Hot on the heels of the hit Dreamworks movie Shrek Forever After comes Ape Entertainment’s Shrek. Take a sneak peek at the nefarious new villain Rumpelstiltskin as he tries time and time again to get the best of Shrek and the gang.

The popular Raising Amy, Kill Shakespeare and The Murder of King Tut return with new issues this week, along with more Superman/Batman, Jurassic Park and Transformers for that sprinkling of box-office gold dust.

There needs to be a Canadian blog, or this one should be renamed to North American blog, or something.

I’m assuming that the amount of companies involved in making the move over to Canada is a lot more than the issue with the Video Store. (eg. The big 4 studios vs. hundreds of indie comic writers.)

I hope we get the Ratchet comic next week. I don’t live anywhere near places that sell comics, so it would be nice to see it here.

This comics reader is great, but is there any chance that the service will be expanded?

Expand to all regions? We love comics here in Hong Kong, we like to read English, and there’s a lot of PSPs over here. Where’s the love, Sony? At least send them to Canada… winter’s coming and our Canadian brethren wont want to go out to buy real comics come silly season.

Expand to more devices? I’ve got a PS3, a Sony Ericsson mobile phone, and it’d be great if I could read the comics on any of them.

Right now I have to lie and cheat my way into the comic store. Fake addresses to set up a dummy PSN account, paying with overpriced imported PSN cards… you know the drill… if you expanded the store you’d make an honest gamer of me.

Thanks for the update, Grace

I have a Google alert set up for PSP comics Canada and every week I get an alert that there is finally news we are going to get comics in Canada. But the alert comes from the PlayStation Blog announcing the digital comics store update and someone puts comments to bring comics to Canada and other regions. I’m asking Sony too to bring comics to Canada please! We’re almost there with getting videos, but we need comics!

Hm. I don’t see the new Ratchet and Clank comics listed on there. I hope those become available soon. Or at the very least, have a graphic novel of all the Ratchet and Clank comics made and released into bookstores at some point. There aren’t any comic stores near my home.
