    If we're talking strictly ComiXology then Marvel and DC are the outliers. Just about every other Western publisher on the platform allows their comics to be downloaded as DRM free backups. It's...

    Just had a look at ComiXology, it seems Marvel still has a slight presence. Trades for Spider-Man, Conan, Ghost Rider and Ms Marvel. Along with a weird collection of comics loosely related to...

    The members of this message board aside, nobody in their right mind is going to potentially risk their life over a comic book. :p
