ComiXology, the comic retailer owned by Amazon, is now offering DRM-free backup copies of selected titles.
In a blog post the firm’s CEO, David Steinberger, said: “For our launch, participating publishers include Image Comics, Dynamite Entertainment, Zenescope Entertainment, MonkeyBrain Comics, Thrillbent, and Top Shelf Productions.
“In addition, our Submit creators and small publishers are now able to choose to make their books available DRM-free.
“As always, you can continue to enjoy all of your purchases – whether available as a DRM-free backup or not – on the comiXology platform in our exclusive cinematic Guided View reading experience, anytime and anywhere. No files required.
“Offering DRM-free backups to you and our customers-to-be is another step in taking comics further, and serves our mission to turn everyone on the face of the planet into a comics fan. There is much more to come.”
