This has been bothering me a bit. In these days of everyone on the PSBlog, this forum.......and really all over the internet at large, but I'm just talking about PlayStation customers in this posting obviously......constantly complaining about how they want everything basically. Demanding all PSP games working on Vita, all PS1 games working on Vita, how they want all these apps and all these features, but specifically wanting the Vita to be able to use any digital content they've bought for PSP on the same account......which I do believe is a valid request of the Vita........
I can't believe that it seems I'm the one and only, single person ever on the Blog mentioning that I want the PSP's digital comic reader adapted for Vita. Am I really the only person who bought digital comics from PSN? And if not, am I the only person who sees how awesome those digital comics would be on Vita's fantastic OLED screen? Or how great it would be to turn the pages with the touch screen? It would be SOOOO much better on Vita than it was/is on PSP. Even just with the PSP functionality just ported to Vita it would still look better.
I know new comics are no longer being added, but the digital comic store still is there, and you can still buy the stuff that is there. I personally have spent about 100 bucks on digital comics, and I want those comics on my Vita more than I want PS1 games or minis, or even more than a good few of my PSP games (btw, I'm well aware basically all digital PSP games work on Vita through PS3, I'm just sayin').
I know not a TON of people bought digital comics from PSN but............Am I REALLY the only one?

Sadly, Sony is going to get rid of the Digital Comics, check this link: Link
So I dont think they will be planning to give Digital Comic support for the Vita.
By the way I bought one Comic when the service was just released, just to check what was all that about.

I bought a Disney free comic, just one free episode though
I think since very few people read it , Sony won't risk their money to make another one for the Vita
I'm sorry that you are sad about this, I think those comics were cool too (a few free ones I've read), but well, that's how life is.

I really hope that the service is brought over to PS Vita as well. However, not everything will move to Vita. It's a whole new portable, so it has a fresh start and some things just have to be left behind.

I'm not sure how long ago you posted this but I received an e-mail saying the comic downloads for the PSP will no longer be available for the PSP at the end of this month. Moreover, Jan 15, 2013 is the last day to download any comics on your memory card or you won't be able to download them anymore at ALL! No, you're not the only comic book fan that bought comics for the PSP. I don't know why they chose to terminate the service but that was a big selling point for this console. I hope they get swamped with complaints on this decision!
