PSP Comic News and Two More Comics Free

SONY has announced some of the publishers you can expect to see when their comic service for the Playstation Portable launches in mid-December.  Over on their blog a member of their staff goes over the list:

  • 2000AD – Featuring Judge Dredd, Durham Red…
  • Disney – Follow the adventures of Mickey Mouse, Scrooge McDuck, Donald Duck….
  • IDW – Astro Boy, Transformers, Star Trek, Wormwood…
  • Insomnia – Burke & Hare, Cages, Cancer Town… Insomnia and Geek Syndicate are also running a competition
  • iVerse – Who bring us content from Ape Entertainment, Archie Comics, Dabel Brothers, Image & Red 5.
  • Marvel – Astonishing X-Men, Captain America, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, The Amazing Spider-Man
  • Titan – Wallace & Gromit

Straight off the bat the biggest thing to notice is DC comics isn’t represented in this listing.  DC has been a little behind the curve when it comes to digital comics and hasn’t quite embraced them as Marvel or other companies has.  Here’s hoping we see their inclusion in future announcements along with Image, Dark Horse and others.

Two more comics are also being provided for an early preview of the service from IDW Publishing.

  • Transformers: All Hail Megatron #1 – code: EC2N-9HBR-HJD6
  • Star Trek Year Four: The Enterprise Experiment #1 – code: 724K-A4BG-JLD7
  • Aleister Arcane #1 – code: 63N8-R2BF-9E4D
  • Astro Boy: Movie Adaptation #1 – code: FF3N-H7B6-M2JF

All four books are worth the read and they’re free!  Thank you IDW Publishing for embracing technology and providing these books.

We’ll be bringing you a full review of the service later this week.
