Sony will shut down the PlayStation Portable Digital Comics service at the end of September.

The comic tab will no longer be accessible from the PlayStation Store interface from then, Andriasang reports.

Sony will stop adding new content to the service from 15th March. You'll be able to re-download already purchased content until the end of the year. The Comic Reader app will also be available to download through the end of the year.

Want to back up your digital comics? Sony recommends using the Media Go program, which links your PSP to a PC.

Sony launched PSP Digital Comics in December 2009 with a neat auto-flow viewer.

Sony said it is currently looking into offering comic and other digital book content through other Sony and PlayStation brand products.

PS Vita launches in Europe on 22nd February.
