Digital Comics Store Update (8th September 2010)
Adding to the 2000+ titles already in the catalogue, another 43 titles hit the Digital Comics Store this week, featuring everyone’s favourite heroes, villains and sixteenth-century bards. Happy hunting!
Here are this week’s top picks:
PSP-owning LARP fans can now get their fix of Dungeons & Dragons with a new series based on the hugely-popular role playing game. Written by Transformers screenwriter John Rogers and novelist Alex Irvine, issue #0 is a special edition featuring two stories to introduce you to the upcoming D&D worlds. Acclaimed Marvel alumni Andrea Di Vito (Annihilation 2006) and Peter Bergting provide the outstanding art.
Yet more bloodthirsty vampire action hits the Digital Comics store this week with Zuda’s Blood Hunter. In a dark future, vampires rule the world, the life of the last human on earth – a baby girl – rests in the hands of a vampire sworn to kill her kind. Issue #1 is a free download.
Marvel’s 1952-vintage Journey Into Mystery – the series that introduced the Mighty Thor to a cowering world – continues its run with issues #87-#90, lovingly created by the Lee/Kirby dream team.
Following on from last month’s release of Silent Hill: Dying Inside, Among the Damned is another tale of bone-chilling horror guaranteed to thrill fans of the video game. Written by best-selling author Scott Ciencin and featuring art by Shaun Thomas, Silent Hill: Among the Damned is a special one-shot edition that will have you sleeping with the lights on. Be afraid.
Hot on the heels of the hit Dreamworks movie Shrek Forever After comes Ape Entertainment’s Shrek. Take a sneak peek at the nefarious new villain Rumpelstiltskin as he tries time and time again to get the best of Shrek and the gang.
The popular Raising Amy, Kill Shakespeare and The Murder of King Tut return with new issues this week, along with more Superman/Batman, Jurassic Park and Transformers for that sprinkling of box-office gold dust.
