Marvel Comics: “Over 700 #1 Free Issues”
[EN]: Whether your are a casual or hardcore fan of comic books, you should not miss this unique opportunity. Yesterday during SXSW, Marvel Comics began giving away the first issue of 700+ comic books in digital format. These comics usually costs between $1.99 and $3.99, so getting over 700 of them is awesome. Perhaps this will entice casual readers to come back to reading more comics. The surprise announcement has made some of the comics sites somewhat overloaded, and it has been hard to either open up an account on Comixology.com or Marvel.com. Do your best. You have until (tomorrow) Tuesday at 11pm EST to claim all the free comics with your account, to be able to read them on computers, and on Android and iOS devices.

El anuncio sorpresa ha hecho que algunos de los sitios de cómics estén algo sobrecargados, y ha sido difícil ya sea abrir una cuenta en Comixology.com o Marvel.com. Hagan lo mejor que puedan. Tienen hasta (mañana) martes a las 11 pm EST para reclamar todos los cómics gratuitos con su cuenta, para ser capaz de leerlas en computadoras, y en los dispositivos Android y iOS.

I was looking forward to attending the Comic-Con Tour (Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope) at the University of Central Florida’s UCF Arena. I thought it was going to be another awesome opportunity to be close to Stan Lee, the legendary 89-year-old comic book author and producer. Unfortunately, I received an email earlier this morning sent to members of the press about the cancellation of the event. At first, I thought the event organizers were going to change the date, but it didn’t turned out to be like that.
Via email, I asked Melissa Schaaf, UCF Arena Marketing Director, if the event is going to be re-scheduled. She replied with the following statement: At this point, all we know is that they have cancelled the entire tour. So I do not believe that they are planning on rescheduling at this time. Unfortunately we don’t have any more information as to why they cancelled.

Pensé que iba a ser otra oportunidad increíble para estar cerca de Stan Lee, el legendario autor y productor de 89 años de edad. Por desgracia, recibí un correo electrónico enviado esta mañana a los miembros de la prensa sobre la cancelación del evento. Al principio pensé que los organizadores del evento iban a cambiar la fecha, pero no resultó ser así.
Vía correo electrónico, le pregunté a Melissa Schaaf, directora de Marketing de la UCF Arena, si el evento va a ser re-programado . Ella respondió con la siguiente declaración: En este momento, todo lo que sabemos es que han cancelado toda la gira. Así que no creo que se está planeando la reprogramación en este momento. Lamentablemente no tenemos más información de por qué lo cancelaron.

With the release of “Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3″ next month, and the start of NY Comic-con tomorrow, Capcom releases some more cool videos of two new fighters. One that many fans have been anxious to see was Phoenix Wright. Because of the nature of his job as an attorney, no one had seen him fight physically before, until now, but Phoenix Wright does bring his well-known phrases to the UMvC3 arena.

In an effort to promote the sport in 1981, the Japanese Football Association helped animator Yoichi Takahashi develop a seemingly “small” project that would cater to a younger audience. They logically reasoned that creating a popular cartoon would popularize it with a younger audience. Little did they know it would become a media goldmine, turning Captain Tsubasa into a cultural icon and help usher in a new era with Japan as a regional power in soccer.
In several countries, “Captain Tsubasa” translated into “Oliver and Benji,” and a comic book and television cartoon that was born from Japan quickly became an international success—no matter where on the globe you grew up, you knew these characters. We went to Tokyo and met with the cartoonists and creative minds that built this empire.

Today, they publish nearly 1000 issues a year – and will now be going digital with PlayStation.

Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) today announced that PSP (PlayStation®Portable) system owners in the United States can now purchase and enjoy hundreds of classic and new comics from a variety of leading publishers, including Marvel Entertainment, Disney, IDW Publishing, iVerse Media and others.
The new PlayStation®Network Digital Comics service puts favorite comic book characters and popular franchises at consumers’ fingertips, when and where they want them. PSP owners can check out Marvel Entertainment’s G.I. Joe, Iron Man, Spider-Man, X-Men and the Fantastic Four; TRANSFORMERS and Star Trek from IDW; and, in partnership with iVerse Media, brands like Archie Comics, and Image Comic’s Proof.
Digital comics are available through PlayStation®Store. Approximately 550 comics are arriving today on PlayStation Store, with additional content to be added weekly. PSP users can purchase comics either directly from PlayStation Store on their PSP via WiFi, or access and download comics from PlayStation Store from their PC with Media Go software, then easily transfer their digital content to their PSP via USB cable. (Go to http://www.us.playstation.com/PSN/mediago for more information about Media Go.)
Digital comics purchased from PlayStation Store are easy to view and enjoy on PSP. The Digital Comics Reader application, currently available with PSP firmware update (v6.20), enables PSP users to feel like they are browsing through a print comic book right in the palm of their hand. Due to an exclusive Autoflow feature, consumers can flip from page-to-page, zoom in and move from frame-to-frame on each digital page — similar to the way eyes move across a print page from left to right. Comics are graphically stunning due PSP’s high contrast LCD screen.
The majority of comics can be purchased for $1.99, with select comics available at $0.99 and $2.99. The PlayStation Store also features a variety of free comics for everyone to enjoy, including Disney’s Donald Duck and the Fussy Genie, and Marvel’s Transformers All Hail Megatron.
