Kronos City on PSP

In the blackest hours before dawn, when all good comic readers were tucked up in bed, the Insomniacs crawled into their dreams.

What were they whispering into the darkness? What did they wish for, lost in the sleep of the innocent?

No less than:
  • To be able read Insomnia comics anywhere, at any time
  • Take their entire comics collections wherever they went
  • To listen to their own music while reading
  • To navigate pages their own way
  • To find and buy comics easily and access content instantly from the PlayStation®Store

All this will be on offer for PSP owners in December 2009, with the opening of the Digital Comics Store on the PlayStation®Network.

Red Eyed and bushy tailed, Insomnia Publications will be standing proud on launch day as our critically acclaimed books take their place on the virtual shelves, next to world famous names in comic book publishing.

Insomnia Publications’ graphic novels will be presented in the store as single-issue length chapters, following the publication of the book. The first chapter of every book will be offered free to readers as a “taster” of the story.

Crawford Coutts, Managing Director of Insomnia Publications, says:

“We are incredibly excited to be partnering with Sony in the launch of the Digital Comics Service. 

Insomnia is committed to nurturing the very best new art, new writing and new concepts in its original graphic novels and the unprecedented scope of this Comics Store will connect independent publishers and readers around the globe.

The help and guidance we have received from Sony throughout truly demonstrates their commitment to support the medium, the publishers, the readers and the comics industry itself. 

Many of our creators are gamers themselves and so were delighted to hear that their work will be offered through PlayStation Network.”

With the first Insomnia titles available right from the December launch, you will be able to:

With a growing range of titles to choose from and the phenomenal scope of the Digital Comics Store, this is just the beginning.

Come and visit our stand at the 
MCM Expo on 24th to 25th of October to learn more.

The Meeting of Kronos City

BICS is over, and after a long sleep, I'm ready to discuss the whirlwind that was BICS. The day was such a fantastic one. At one point Andrew, Alex, Stephen Downey (Cancer Town and Slaughterman's Creed) and I were in a lift with Darth Vader. Alex and I were able to catch up with our old uni, who had a stand there.

But most importantly, Team Kronos City was able to meet for the first time. As the picture above shows the three of us (Jim sadly turned invisible) together with our Karma Inc. flyer (and for all those who have read the Chapter One Preview, you'll know all about Karma Inc.). In case any one doesn't know, the photo goes left to right, Andrew, Alex and me. With the amount of correspondence we've all had over the pst 6 months, it felt more like meeting up with an old friend, than meeting someone for the first time ever. And oddly enough, Andrew and Alex both own the same car, so this team was clearly meant to be.

If you want the ultimate report on BICS, go to the Insomnia blog, as Nic tells the story better than I ever could.

I hope anyone else who went enjoyed the weekend, and I look forward to seeing you all at the London MCM Expo!

Kronos Promos

Andrew, Alex and I will all be at BICS this weekend ready to talk about Kronos City! And in honor of the occasion we've had some Karma Inc. posters made up. If somethings not going right in your life, just visit Finnegan Vedant, 13 James Avenue, Kronos City (Andrew's mind).
