Digital Comics Store Update (25th March 2010)
This weeks highlights
First up Markosia are offering a free comic in the form of Kong: King of Skull Island. What happened after the Kong’s fall from the Empire State Building? Where did the body go? What happened to Carl Denham? What is Kong’s relevance to the mysterious Skull Island? Where did the wall come from and what is it there for? All these questions and more are answered in this prequel/sequel based on the book by Joe DeVito
Markosia also release The Dark. Set in the city of Dante, and the world of Memetech. As a wave of drugs that create living stories sweeps his city, one man fights back as “The Dark”. A vigilante who wields fiction as a weapon, he is the last hope for a city where nothing is what it seems. A stunning new sci-fi thriller that will have you begging for more!
From IDW we have the first issue of The Ghoul written and created by Steve Niles (30 Days of Night), with art by the legendary Bernie Wrightson (Swamp Thing). This comic features audio commentary by Steve Niles.
Locke & Key continues to get better and better with the start of a new story arc Crown of Shadows. This comic has the best audio commentary I’ve heard so far, featuring the author Joe Hill, the artist Gabriel Rodriguez and the editor Chris Ryall. Truly insightful, don’t miss it!
Finally we start a new series – Transformers Movie Sequel: The Reign of Starscream and guess what? This comic also features audio commentary from the writer, inker and colourist. A must for all Transformers fans.
A massive thank you to IDW for continuing to explore and support the audio commentary feature. If you’ve not experienced it yet, just buy one of these issues and look for the extras tab on the summary screen. Navigate to it and hit X to launch the comic with the commentary enabled.
