- Sony PlayStation Store Senior Manager Grace Chen
is here with this weeks PSP digital comics store updates today.
To quote: We have 82 new comics to keep you busy over the festive period. Plus we have some rather exciting news; we finally have a Manga
publisher on board.
You've probably heard of TOKYOPOP
, they were apparently responsible for introducing the term manga to the English language.
They have a catalog of over 3000 books and have worked on creating manga versions of major brands like Star Trek all the way through to SpongeBob SquarePants.
So without further ado, let's look at this week's highlights
From TOKYOPOP, who ya gonna call? GHOSTBUSTERS, of course! Find out what's been happening since the Ghostbusters last saved New York City as Peter, Ray, Egon, Winston and the rest of the gang make their first manga appearance!
Based on one of the most popular fantasy films of all time, Legends of The Dark Crystal
is a manga prequel set hundreds of years before the events of the film, when the gentle Gelflings and wise Mystics are still thriving. And so, unfortunately, are the evil Skeksis.
Halloween has always been and always will be about one thing...getting the best CANDY. Some fiendish friends excel at tricks if they don't get the right treats. Follow what happens in I Luv Halloween
when these gremlins receive a frickin' apple at their first house of the night, they plan deadly revenge on the offending fruit-favoring old-timer.
Going where no manga has gone before, check out Star Trek: The Manga
which is set in the original series.
The highlight from Marvel this week must be Tron: Original Movie Adaptation
. It's a stunning new visualization of the original TRON film. Learn the secrets of the Tron Universe. Discover its cast of dynamic characters. Witness the events of the legendary film in an all-new comic event.
Finally, from BOOM!
comes an adaption of one of my favorite books, Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
I believe someone made a film about it too.
