Kara and Matt pretty much hung out with the Avengers cast at SDCC, not going to lie to you. OK maybe we didn’t but we do talk about George R.R. Martin's signing, Coulson walking by, DRM-free backups, and our favorite moments. 

We also talked about Kelly Sue, Superman capes, Hebrew National hot dogs, and hot wings. What would you want from a weekly comiXology podcast? Tap/click here to let us know in survey form.

DRM-Free Backups Now Available.

Dearest readers,

I’m excited to share some big news with you: comiXology now offers DRM-free backups.

This new feature allows you to download and store local copies of books in PDF and CBZ format.

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.

You can find the list of books you own that support DRM-free backup at comixology.com in the My Backups tab of the My Books area.

Learn more about DRM-free books here or on our FAQ page.

Enjoy!
