Digital Comics Store Update (22nd April 2010)

23 13

Another week, another bumper crop of digital comics. Let’s see what we have in store

Digital Comics

I can see from last week’s sales figures that a huge number of you downloaded Icon’s Kick Ass . Well this week Icon release another classic – Brian Michael Bendis’ Eisner Award winning “Powers”. Heroes glide through the sky on lightning bolts and fire. Flamboyant villains attempt daring daylight robberies. God-like alien creatures clash in epic battle over the night-time sky. And on the dirty city streets below, homicide detectives Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim investigate the murders of the world’s most powerful and popular POWERS.

From IDW we see the start of a new series “Dead, She Said”. Written by Steve Niles and drawn by industry legend Bernie Wrightson, the series follows Detective Coogan who wakes up dead one morning and then sets out to find his murderer. This comic comes with insightful audio commentary from Mr Niles. Also from IDW we have a new Transformers series – Nefarious , a new issue of staff favourite Locke & Key and issue one of Kill Shakespeare.

Archie Comics bring us the legendary Sonic the Hedgehog. Follow Sonic’s adventures as he tries to foil Dr Robotnik’s evil plans. I know that at least ESPGANESAIII will be happy with this news!
