Same reason why Xenosaga gets German subtitles: Japanese developers = batshit insane.
It's more likley that Gamefront just takes their News from other sites as usuall. In this case probably Jeux France.

Well some bastard at 2ch just posted few parts of various articles from new Fami, nothing too interesting.
Yes, that's right, keep insulting people from Japan that are still willing to post scans (in whatever capacity), I'm sure that'll get them all motivated to post more detailed scans shortly! :p

Dear Microsoft, couldn't you even think about us and bring it to the marketplace ?
Don't forget, Xbox Live is bringing it home :D

:lol Yeah right.

That's the reason the news appear on gamefront first and hours later on Jeux France. gamefront made their first update at 6:00 a.m. in the morning today, Jeux France hours later (they have only 5 news online by now and btw no Famitsu scores, gamefront has 30 news and the scores).

And MGS Digital Grahic is called in Japan Metal Gear Solid: Bande Dessinee. Ask duckroll or bloke please if you don't trust me.

Look here please

The latest issue of Famitsu has the full scoop on Konami's previously announced PSP digital comic, fully titled Metal Gear Solid Bande Dessinee.

Yeah, I'm sure Gamefront gets some of their news from other sites... most sites work like that. But to compare it to the low that is Jeux-France is just insulting :p

You are wrong, Sir. But who cares. If anybody wants to know where the name "Bande Dessinee" comes from he should buy the book "The Art of Metal Gear Solid" (Softbank, 2,900 yen)

Konamis Yoji Shinkawa is a big fan of "Bande Dessinee" art and explains in an interview how important this style was for his work.

He was 12 years old as he found BD comics in the western import section of a bookshop and they had a great impact on him. He's also a fan of Enki Bilal too.

So "Bande Dessinee" is very importing for Shinkawa-san and his work on MGS. Actually the color-sense of MGS based on BD.

here's a small scan. The interview is in japanese and english.
