PlayStation Comics Store Update

34 0

Hello again, I hope you all enjoyed your Easter break. Let’s see what we have in store this week:

For all of you requesting some manga, IDW have provided a corker. Hideyuki Kikuchi’s Vampire Hunter D Vol 1 is set in the post apocalyptic year of 12,090 A.D. From the darkness of fallout, mutants and a race of vampires known as the Nobility have spawned. Villagers live in fear & all they have to battle this danger is a different kind of danger –- enter D –- a lone, mysterious vampire hunter. Definitely deserves its 17+ rating!

Also from IDW we see the return of Zombies Vs Robots with the first issue of a 4 part series: Aventure. Chris Ryall provides the script again (and the audio commentary!), Ashley Wood provides the covers and 3 new artists work on each of the 3 serialised tales. Highly recommended!

If gruesome, ritualistic killings are your cup of tea then check out Markosia’s Ritual. A series of murders in the small town of Black Root all have one thing in common: they’re reminiscent of ancient witch trials. The FBI are on the case and soon realize that a supernatural killer is on the prowl – condemning his victims to diabolical ordeals.

Finally we see the return of the extremely popular Atomic Robo from Red 5 and more Amazing Spider-Man from Marvel.

  • Great job on getting Vampire Hunter D! I’ll show it and manga in general some love by purchasing it (I have the movie, but never read the manga). Keep up the good work and bring us more (please :) )!

  • Vampire Hunter D is $1.99 on the store. Is this an error or did you print the wrong price?

  • Pretty good update this week. Would definitely like to see some more Dynamo 5 soon though.

  • Resistance comics anytime soon?

  • Why doesn’t Canada get this comics on the PS store or movies???

  • We need a way to delete comics we don’t want! I was just clearing space on my Memory Stick and found out I have to use a PC and go into the folders and delete cryptically named files and then see if those were the right ones. Such a pain! Why isn’t this an option on the XMB or at least inside the viewer? Can’t believe there isn’t a way to do this easily from the PSP!

  • Why can’t we get the actual store update at this time then everything else later! I would love to download stuff now rather than spend time waiting at home… I want my store update at work so i’m ready to game ASAP!

  • Why is my comment awaiting moderation? There’s no URLs or objectionable language in it. I was even going to say “pain in the ass” but held back for this exact reason. Don’t get it…

  • lawlz… My comment with a (somewhat) objectionable phrase published right away. :/

  • Are we going to get the God of War comics?

  • Grr I’m afraid to go to sleep now, no thanks to Marvel Zombies…

  • Can you guys please update the store before 7pm EST time today, I want to be able to download FIFA World Cup 2010 when I come home today.


  • Glad to see manga show up, but I’m disappointed by the pricing. The main reason why I don’t buy manga is because I feel it’s overpriced so I was really hoping they’d be cheaper to download. As it is now, $2 a chapter means that you’ll probably be spending even more to download a full volume of manga (since one volume generally has 5-7 chapters in it) than you would if you just went to the store or bought it off of Amazon. Although $2/volume is probably too cheap, something like $5/volume would be reasonable.

  • Hey is the God of War comics on PSN? Did they ever release them? They were supposed to come out in March

  • You know what I want to see? Release the PSN update first and then the niche content like comics and video. Thanks for your time.

  • @D-Rod8605 and @katsuo7171

    Your comments are off topic and this “request” is becoming quite repetitive across all Playstation Blog posts. The introduction of the Playstation.Blog Share site was designed to provide an avenue for comments of this nature. Please use the “Share” site for complaints and process change requests. Thanks.

    Otherwise this looks like a great update with Vampire Hunter D and more Zombies vs. Robots. At first I didn’t think the PSP comics application would appeal to me, but I have found myself becoming more and more interested purchasing a number of titles just out of curiosity. By sheer serendipity I have discovered some excellent titles with gorgeous artwork and compelling storytelling: Wormwood Gentleman Corpse, Dark Mists, and Durham Red just to name a few. I have also rediscovered some comics that I owned/loved in my youth like some of the 90’s era X-Men. My PSP comics application now receives attention equal to that of my games library.

    Great work!

  • any chance at all of this coming to the PS3? I would actually use this service, but I don’t plan on owning a PSP

  • So like, SenseMe was updated to 1.50 but as far as Comic Viewer goes…. we can’t even delete them from our Memory Sticks :/

    Like what the hell? Why wasn’t that added with the app!?

  • BTW, why does it take all divisions of Sony forever to update anything!? This is what I hate about having anything PlayStation sometimes!

  • Hi again Grace.

    Our weekly exchange of add Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #42 to the store to complete the One More Day storyline has apparently fallen on deaf ears. So as of today this will be my last time asking.

    Shame that there is little interest in selling another part of a short arc.

  • Please put up the God of War comics, i think the first two just came out.

  • digging the Vampire Hunter D. How about adding the God of War comics to the store, since uh, the game is a PS exclusive.

  • Solid-Snake-Eyes

    I’d be more likely to buy the new Big Boss PSP if I could buy comics for it in Canada.

  • Manga would be so awesome

  • yay manga :D my idea on playstation blog share was heeded.

    hope to see even more in the future

  • I dont personally read comics cause I think they are stupid…

    however I feel like your comic selection is very good and well rounded. ON that note. Good job with the digital comics.

  • @6

    Yes, they REALLY need to put out an update to the comic reader so we can delete comics.

    Comics I want from MARVEL, PLEASE put up difital version of

    The last New X-Men arce “Here Comes Tomorrow”

    Wolverine: The End

    Thanos 1-12 (which was the whole run and ties into Annihilation)

    MARVEL: The End

  • I love this on my PSP Go, but maybe on the PS3 soon? :)

  • Cool. I’m going to pick up the 3 issues Locke and Key, I can’t wait for the trade to be published.

  • I already have physical copies of the Vampire Hunter D books. Not taht I could download these anyway since i live in Canada, but them being there is sweet.

  • All right we got 1 manga. That’s good. You’re making some progress. Grace, can you tell Marvel to put up Marvel Mangaverse, and Marvel Tsunamis. They aren’t Japanese, but a OEL Manga or pesudomanga work as good as Japanese manga. Can you get Marvel and Del Rey manga to put up X-men: Misfits and Wolverine: Prodigal Son? they’re OEL manga but I have read those and they;re intresting, you can put those up.

  • I really want to see the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter comics on here! It shouldn’t be hard to do since both of the creators of the comics are already on here. Dabel Bros and Marvel. These comics were responsible for bring women to comic book stores in droves. Bring them to my PSP go, please?

  • Is there any chance the God of War or Resistance Comics will make it on the PSN?
