Digital Comic Update – 07.22.10

Posted by Luke Brown On July - 23 - 2010

Find some good comics to download for your flight home from San Diego Comic Con on this week’s Digital Comic Update.

BOOM! Studios

Nothing new on the BOOM! app this week, which is a shame, but perhaps next week will fare better.

Comics+/IDW/Archie

Despite there being no BOOM! comics on their actual app, there are quite a few on the Comics+ app this week. The last two chapters of the first The Unknown mini-series arrive, as do the first issues of Dead Run and Hawks of Outremer. IDW’s True Blood adaptation drops this week as well, and though I’m not a True Blood fan, there’s a rabid group of people who will certainly enjoy more stories in that universe. The book I’m looking forward to most though is the all-new Jurassic Park mini-series Redemption. Set more than a decade after the conclusion of the first movie/book, the comic reintroduces us to Tim and Lex, who are about to open a new park. It’s a new take on one of my favorite books, so I’ve got to give it a try.

  • The Amory Wars: IKSSE3 #1 – $1.99
  • Archie #609 – $1.99
  • Best of the Seventies #2 – $5.99

  • X-Men #173 – $1.99

comiXology

Only one new book on the comiXology app, which despite the book being free, is a bit of a downer because I think they really missed an opportunity here to have a bunch of books out for people traveling around during SDCC. Hope they come back strong next time.

  • SDCC Sampler #1 – FREE

DC Comics

Just like the comiXology app, the DC app only has the SDCC Sampler available this week. Now, that’s not a terrible thing. The comic is free, and contains a whopping 240 some-odd pages of DC comics that will hopefully get you interested in most of the company’s line-up. Guess I’ll just have to wait until next week for the second issue of Kingdom Come.

  • SDCC Sampler #1 – FREE

Marvel

The first three issues of Grant Morrison’s and Frank Quitely’s run on New X-Men are made available, and that’s all you really need to know. Seriously, this are some of the best X-Men comics of the last decade, and should be read by anyone with even a passing interest in the characters. You’ll also find a healthy helping of Amazing Spider-Man books, as well as some solid Captain America comics, but your best bet is still New X-Men.

  • Amazing Spider-Man #558 – FREE
  • Amazing Spider-Man #559-564 – $1.99 (each)
  • Black Panther #6-9 – $1.99 (each)
  • Captain America #37-42 – $1.99 (each)
  • Marvel Adventures Iron Man #5 – $1.99
  • Marvel Adventures Spider-Man #5 – $1.99
  • New X-Men #114-116 – $1.99 (each)
  • Ultimate Iron Man II #1 – FREE
  • Ultimate Iron Man II #2-5 – $1.99 (each)
  • Wolverine #45-49 – $1.99 (each)
  • X-Men #175-176 – $1.99 (each)

Panelfly

The Panelfly app wasn’t updated in time for this week’s article. As soon as it goes live, I’ll be sure to add it in for you guys.

PSP

You’re going to want to pick up Bone #1 and Rasl #1 this week. Bone, the fantastical story of three brothers, and how they can save the world, is one of the greatest comics of all time, and Rasl is Jeff Smith’s completely unrelated sci-fi mystery follow-up. I’ll keep telling you to buy Green Lantern books as long as they keep putting them up for sale, and the same goes for DMZ and Fables. Kingdom Come‘s second issue arrives on the PSP this week, and if this is your only way to read it, you should definitely get it. If you have an iPad, I’d hold out until the book releases on that so you can really appreciate the detail in the art. For you Red Faction fans, there are two different comics available for free this week taking place in both the Guerilla and Armageddon universes.

  • Astonishing Tales (2009) # 6 – $1.99
