Comixology is a digital distributor of comic books that was purchased by Amazon in April of this year. During Comic-Con international in San Diego this week, the company made an announcement that fans of digital comic books will love.




Comixology is ready to offer users a number of DRM-free comic books. With no DRM to mess things up, buyers of the digital comics can copy and share DRM-free comic books and can store them on their devices permanently. This may seem a bit strange to fans of comics considering that Comixology was reportedly working to get the tools for stripping DRM taken off Github not long ago.


The important thing here is that this announcement doesn't mean all comics the site offers will be DRM-free. Publishers of the digital comics will have the option of making them DRM-free if they choose.
