Sony Computer Entertainment New Zealand has just announced that a number of comics under the DC stable are headed to the PlayStation Network Digital Comics service for the PlayStation Portable.
Over 80 DC titles will kick off the publisher's initial offering, with prices ranging from $1.90 to $7.90 per issue. Included among the titles on offer are Batman: Hush, Green Lantern: Rebirth, Fables: Legends in Exiles and Planetary: All Over the World. There'll be comics that are exclusive to the PlayStation Network as well such as Free Realms, God of War, Resistance and Superman/Batman.
To give users an incentive to adopt the service DC Comics is offering a free 10-page preview of the 700th issue of Superman on PlayStation Network Digital Comics.
“Outside of my work as a comic book creator and Co-Publisher, I’m an avid gamer,” said Jim Lee, DC Comics Co-Publisher. “Making our comics available through PlayStation Network Digital Comics offers a perfect opportunity for us to reach a new, different kind of reader.”
“Digital Comics has been incredibly popular since its release last year, and we’re excited to have some of the comic book world’s most iconic characters from DC Comics joining the stables”, says Isabelle Tomatis, European Marketing Manager, Hardware and Platforms, SCEE. “With over 80 comics in just the first delivery, DC Comics will add to the huge range of great comics available for PSP, so fans can take their favourite characters and adventures from the DC world with them wherever they go.”
