It’s been a long, strange trip to get Powers, the Brian Michael Bendis/Michael Avon Oeming comic book series, to the small screen, but the day has finally arrived. The first episode of Powers is now available for viewing for free on PlayStation Network for free to anyone with a PSN account, as well as online through PlayStation’s website.
You can also watch the entire premiere episode in the video embedded here below.
The entirety of the first season is free for PlayStation Plus members, with non-members paying $24.99 for HD and $17.99 for SD respectively for the full season. You can also pay $2.99 (HD) or $1.99 (SD) per episode, with the first 3 episodes being available today. New episodes will premiere each Tuesday for the rest of the season.
PlayStation TV’s first original series, Powers, launches on March 10, and as we get closer to the premiere date, Sony has given us a look behind the scenes of the show. “An Inside Look at Powers: A PlayStation Original Series” runs over seven minutes long, and gives a lot of good background on the series that should get you pumped to watch.
Powers is based on the comics series by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, and stars Sharlto Copley (District 9, Chappie) as Detective Christian Walker, a homicide detective who specializes in cases that deal with people with super powers. He is teamed up with a new partner named Deena Pilgrim (Susan Heyward — The Following, Poltergeist). The series also stars Eddie Izzard (The Riches, Hannibal), Michelle Forbes (Battlestar Galactica, True Blood), Noah Taylor (Almost Famous, Game of Thrones), Olesya Rulin (High School Musical, Greek), and Logan Browning (Bratz, Meet the Browns).
You can watch “An Inside Look at Powers” below and then watch the first episode when it starts on March 10, 2015 and is available exclusively on the PlayStation Network to PlayStation Plus subscribers.

Red Sonja #100 is truly the definition of “jam packed”! Dynamite Entertainment has truly gotten the gang back together, and in doing so, we get just about every single kind of Red Sonja story that there is right here in this single comic. In this giant issue, you get sword and sorcery, horror, action, and even a little heartwarming drama. What’s not to love?
Consisting of five different stories, by legendary Red Sonja writers like Eric Trautmann, Roy Thomas, Michael Avon Oeming, Gail Simone, and Luke Lieberman, you get everything you want and more in this comic book. Roy Thomas pens a truly great old fashioned sword and sorcery tale with a hint of mystery. Current Red Sonja scribe Gail Simone writes a very entertaining story about Red Sonja finally meeting her childhood “idol.” Then there’s Luke Lieberman’s (Queen Sonja) story about Sonja, a companion, and a sorcerer that is thrilling, yet very heartwarming. Out of all five stories, there’s not a bad one in the bunch.
