I got to this email this morning from the founder of ComiXology.  Looks like some changes are coming to their app. I hope it doesn’t mess up the library.  I like the way the Wish List works right now. 

————————————————————————————————————-

Hello, Friends!

For those of you who don't know me, I'm David Steinberger, co-founder and CEO of comiXology. It's been a while since I personally wrote to comiXology customers, but it's for a good reason: the comiXology team has been hard at work making important changes that you'll start to see soon, and today I'm excited to share what's coming.

First, though, I want to ask you to merge your comiXology and Amazon account so you can use these new services — in fact, once we update this fall, you'll need to use an Amazon account to use comiXology at all. You can do so, here. Thanks!

In 2014, comiXology did what all great comic book heroes do: a major team-up. Teaming up with Amazon was the best way to support our mission — to make everyone on the planet a lifelong comics, graphic novel, or manga fan. Since then, we've been adding features like Guided View and comiXology Unlimited to Amazon and the Kindle app. We made our amazing comiXology Originals titles available free-to-read with a Prime Reading, Kindle Unlimited, or comiXology Unlimited membership. These additions have helped us reach more readers of comics, graphic novels, and manga than ever before.

This fall, we're introducing an upgraded comiXology app along with a new way to shop for digital comics and manga on Amazon.com. Here are some of the changes you can expect:

  • Our upgraded comiXology app will feature flexible filtering and sorting, and some fun book navigation features.
  • A revamped digital comics shopping experience on Amazon where you'll be able to browse, buy, and borrow books to read on either the comiXology or Kindle app. You can visit the new shopping experience today as we continue to bring new features online. ComiXology.com will redirect to this new experience when we launch.
  • Faster, more reliable downloads on Android and iOS devices. Plus read-while-downloading is new for Android customers. (Yes, we've heard you!)
  • Kindle Unlimited and Prime members will be able to borrow from a large library of graphic novels and manga and read on the comiXology app, in select countries.
  • ComiXology purchases will be readable on Kindle apps and devices. Soon, you'll also be able to read purchases from comiXology on the Kindle app, giving you more flexibility to decide where and how you read your books.

The team and I can't wait to share more about our new features and exciting changes over the next couple of weeks.

If you have questions I didn't cover in this email, visit our FAQ or join our conversation on Twitter.

Thanks for being a reader of and an advocate for this amazing art form. I'm truly grateful to work with such a passionate team of comic and manga lovers. I look forward to releasing our new app this fall and following up with great new features and improvements at a more rapid pace.

For those of you who haven't enjoyed a comiXology Original title yet, read Kel McDonald and Tyler Crook's The Stone King for free until 9/30/2021 as a token of our appreciation. I love this book!

All the best,

David
Co-founder and CEO of comiXology
GM Digital Comics, Amazon

PS: I wanted to share something pretty amazing: Stephen King's new novel, Billy Summers, has not one but two mentions of @comixology in the story. That's a nice feeling…

I'm...rather surprised this didn't happen sooner, tbh.

I just wonder if the same deals will be available 2-6 months past publishing dates.

If not...I"m going to be buying a bunch of comics!!

I agree.  I was actually surprised too they didn’t integrate right away.

Here’s a link to what the new Amazon centric site is going to look like.  ComiXology.com is going to redirect to here when they upgrade.
