Image Comics Will Have DRM Free Comics

Image Comics announced that it will now sell all of its digital comics as downloadable via its website for both desktop and mobile users — making it the first major American comics publisher to offer readers DRM-free digital versions of comics.


I’m using Comixology for more then a year. Few days ago I realised that I really don’t own all comics I bought. I only have a license to read them from only one app.

Now think, what if?

  1. New Comixology app update will make it look/work terrible.
  2. You want to give a comic to your friend.
  3. Comics you bought will be pulled out from Comixology store because disagreement with publisher or App Store will go after it.
  4. You want to back up your data.

In all this cases you’re in trouble. Good news, The Walking Dead and Saga publisher — Image Comics already selling DRM-free comics.

Prices not so good. Saga issue is $2.99 VS $1.99 in Comixology and You can not buy bundles yet. But I encourage you to buy DRM-free products.
