Slim Down for Summer with That's Fit

Digital Comics come to life with the Cryptics this Thursday

Ever find yourself thinking: "gee, I want to read comic books, but I hate the feeling of the ink and paper on my fingers"? Seems like Sony's PSP has yet another use and solution for your troubled minds: digital comics. On Thursday, D2 Comics and D2C Games are unveiling The Cryptics, a nine-episode comic by Steve Niles and Ben Roman following the adventures of young versions of famous monsters.

The entire nine-episode series will put you back $2.99, and will last about half an hour. That's about the same as a single comic book. The digital comic will advance automatically (assuming you don't pause, rewind, or fast forward) and display what you need to be looking at, with text bubbles popping up on their own. There are also sound effects and slide transitions. So it's sort of like an advanced comic book. Comic Book Plus. At the end of each episode, you can watch an interview with the creators or check out some biographies and explanations on the history of the idea.

It sounds pretty neat, but of course, comics aren't for everyone. The purist will want the physical product, and the skeptics won't take any chances. It's up to you guys: will digital comics grow in popularity?
