Titles will include Spider-man, X-Men and The Fantastic Four from Marvel, as well as Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck from Disney. IDW will bring its Transformers and Star Trek series, and comics from Titan, iVerse and 2000AD will also be offered. Sony will also include underground titles and works from local publishers. Readers will be able to zoom in and out from each frame, and move from one frame to the next by pushing a button. While reading, users can still listen to their own music.

Pricing for the comics hasn't yet been announced, but there will be some free titles offered. The reader will also be offered as a free download.
