Comixology announced the second wave of publishers participating in their DRM-free library. The DRM-free backup feature was announced earlier this year during the Comixology panel at San Diego Comic Con, with a first round of publishers Image Comics, Dynamite Entertainment, Zenescope Entertainment, MonkeyBrain Comics, Thrillbent, and Top Shelf Productions. Comixology also gave the option to self-publishing creators to decide if they would like to participate as well.
This second round of publishers includes IDW Publishing, Valiant Entertainment, Oni Press, Fantagraphics Books, Aspen Comics, Action Lab Entertainment, Th3rd World Studios, A Wave Blue World, Blind Ferret Entertainment, Caliber Comics, Creative Impulse Entertainment, Devil’s Due Entertainment, GT Labs Comics and Kingstone Media.
DRM-free backups can be downloaded as high definition PDF and CBZ files. As of this announcement, approximately one-quarter of the publishers represented are participating in the program, Still, the addition of 4,000 titles represents only small slice in their overall library of over 50,000 titles.
