  • Comixology Glitch
    Have you tried managing your library via the desktop web site and returning a few books there to see if it helps? (I think that embedded link is global, but if it isn't, go to, then "My Account", then "Manage your library"). The books you've borrowed should have a button labeled something like "Return this book" to take it out of your account. Do that for a few of them, especially the ones you... - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • New to comics. Is the state of everything a good time to join?
    There's no requirement to "join" to use comixology. It is simply a platform by which you can read the books that you purchase through comixology. Its fit for you is completely dependent on the selection of books offered in the catalog. Now there is a subscription service called "Comixology Unlimited" which allows you to read for free (note read not own; think like a library loan) a selection of the catalog that... - Source: Reddit / 6 months ago
  • I absolutely HATE the integration with Kindle. Who asked for this?
    I do recommend using the comixology app to read and use for shopping and purchase. I know these are just wallpaper to kindle and amazon, but I just find the compartmentalization easier to manage, especially at the start. If you read text books on kindle you will probably have to select the filter in the library to show only books and not comic books and manga. - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago
  • is there any way to sort "New to Comixology Unlimited " ? Do I have to sort through 771 results ? Can titles be condensed ? Sorted alphabetically? This is completely mental trying to sort it as, right ?
    I find that the website ( has better filtering options than the app. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • Hello everyone, does anyone have any tips on where I can sell my digital comic?
    Used to be able to publish pretty easily on Comixology not sure now though. You could also try Drive Thru Comics and Etsy. You can even sell on Amazon DTP. And lastly, good luck 👍. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • Can't find unlimited titles
    Use the website for selecting books to read. unlimited should be able to work through the comixology app but for initial troubleshooting, I would start with the website. - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago
  • Is there an easy way to search for comics and buy them on the Amazon website?
    Yeah, go directly to (which is what now defaults to), and the search is just "comics, manga, & graphic novels". - Source: Reddit / 10 months ago
  • I just want to buy comics and read them? Is that really asking to much?
    If I try to go to I just get redirected to the Kindle store. - Source: Reddit / 12 months ago
  • I just want to buy comics and read them? Is that really asking to much?
    I'm afraid you're searching on the full amazon catalog without any filters. You're best results will be to use the comixology app or as both of these apply the filter "Search comics, manga, & graphic novels" by default. - Source: Reddit / 12 months ago
  • Replace Comixology Brand with Kindle Comics?
    Yeah, I also see the "Kindle Comics" label as a portent of an eventual removal of the Comixology brand (aside from going directly to, how does one get to Kindle Comics from the Amazon home page? I don't see it being openly advertised, or the pathing does not seem clear to me). - Source: Reddit / 12 months ago
  • How have your buying habits changed since the rollout?
    That being said, visiting was a daily ritual for me. On Monday, I would browse the sales. On Tuesday, I would shop for new DC and older Marvel books. Wednesday was great, as of of the rest of the new stuff would come out. Thursday was usually graphic novel and collections day. I could easily find a comic I was interested in, as well as quickly see if I already purchas...I mean "acquired" it... - Source: Reddit / 12 months ago
  • Why would retain/use the Comixology name/branding in the long-term?
    I recently opened up in my browser and noted that the tab was now labeled as "Kindle Comics" and saw recent comment here about the Comixology app's now dubious raison d'etre and that got me thinking... - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Patton Oswalt on the changes to Comixology
    ...they removed it for the US, as well. Going to sends you to "". - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • How to use ComiXology ( version) if you live outside of the USA
    Anyways, I figured out that all the comics I've been buying over the past 7+ years on are actually already in my digital content library. Which made sense to me because all my purchases on were in USD funds. So once I figured that out I started to dig deeper and this is what I figured out. You need to go to your account settings, find the "Content & Devices"... - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Migraines and reading manga on kindle ereader
    Try Comixology . It's an Amazon subscription service for comics, graphic novels and manga. You pay monthly and you have unlimited access to select titles. The titles that are not included in the membership are priced a little cheaper than the physical book. There is usually a 30 day free trial and it's $5.99/month in the US. I'm not sure what countries it is available in. I'm also not sure if any Viz Mangas are... - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago

    You can buy digital versions of DC comics from, or order print copies from book stores that import them. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Wonder Woman meets Jason Todd for the first time - Superman Annual (1960) issue 11
    To clarify for anyone looking for this issue, it's one of the most famous Superman stories - "For the Man Who Has Everything". It didn't come out in 1960 (that's just when Superman annuals started) - it came out in 1985. You can find it a bunch of collections - and on a variety of digital reading services ( for example). - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago

In a few weeks, we'll walk you through the changes happening to your series subs. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • What's up with the controversy surrounding "I'm not Starfire" and the death of the American comic book industry?
    So, these comics have the first issues as a legal free download on, so you can give them a shot and see if you like them. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Buying vs. Subscribe
    Why would they do this? I don't think it's an oversight. They could easily link the comixolgy add to cart to the amazon link to buy for kindle or whatever, or even just say "you cannot buy individual comics on instead of just declining the CC. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
  • I have no idea about where to start or even how to start, any help?
    You can also purchase digital single comics from - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
