We’ve had a very busy week here in the Digital Comics lair training new publishers (!) and prioritising new features for the application. Those of you who follow us on Twitter will know that we’ve been asking for your ideas and requests, so for those that don’t, please let us know what you’d like to see in the comments below. And yes, we are working on a way to delete comics from within the application!
In this week’s update we have a massive 46 comics for your delectation. Highlights include our first game related comic, the newly released: Army of Two #1. We see another chapter in the disturbing, yet hilarious, life of Wormwood. Plus IDW are releasing the issue 0 teaser comic too – both come with audio commentary from creator Ben Templesmith. In the Marvel camp you can read the first six ever episodes of The Incredible Hulk (1962); and we introduce both Uncanny X-Men and Blade to the library. Plus more Avengers and more Daredevil. Should keep you busy for a while!
The Digital Comic Store is now selling about 700 comic books for the Playstation Portable. Given that the store only opened two months ago and that this is an entirely new format, 700 isn't bad.
I played with PSP Go for a short time while at CES. I thought the Digital Reader was actually a pretty good solution to the problem of the comic book page image being larger than the PSP screen. It doesn't just display images, and it's difficult to describe the complete process. But there is a video demo in the Digital Comic Store
. If you're interested then you should watch it.
