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