Insomnia available on PSP!

Well Just about the Most Exciting thing has gone and happened at The Publishers of Dream Solver. I'll Let the following post from insomnia explain it all!

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.

Along with all of the Insomnia graphic Novels that are out right now such as 'Cancertown', 'Buskers' and most recently 'Burke and Hare' 'Dream solver' Will most defiantly be part of this, so any curious users of the PSP will be able to download the whole novel and take it anywhere!....i would!

Off To Never Never Land....

Dream Solver will be pushing itself out there and in your faces from now on...hopefully. Myslef and luke have got the Dream Solver Blog up and ready to go.
Firstly we start with our leaflets. earlier on i posted a plan for our promotional flyers and here as you should see above is the finsied piece. we printed a load of these off so we can give out some awareness of what were doing and bring attention to ourselves! so if you make it to the BICS this weekend be sure to pick one up and have our first printed work! not much i know but its all your getting just now.
The Dream solver Blog has been kicked of by Luke giving a nice little intro and qucik fire fact on the coming story lines and characters. this post has come with some new quick character sketches, they have more of the appearence of the actual comic rather than my previous photoshop sketches id shown before, i think it shows how i'm working with it and how i'm trying to get to grips with inking and colouring!
anyway enough of me. go to Blog! get some reading done and i'll have a post up of my visit to the BICS convention as soon as i get back!
