How to Remove DRM from Kindle & ComiXology Books

Posted by on .

Amazon has acquired the biggest provider of digital comics - Comixology in 2014. There’s no doubt that Amazon will include Comixology into its ecosystem sooner or later. No surprise, in February 2022 Comixology did merge its store with Amazon.com. All previously purchased books are still available in your account. You may read them in the Comixology app, Kindle app, or on desktop with Kindle Cloud Reader. Therefore, you can remove DRM from your Comixology books just as you did with Kindle books.

However, customers complained a lot about the rendering quality of the images on the Kindle app or Amazon cloud reader(even worse). The resolution is not high. In fact, Comixology is the company that revolutionized the digital comics reading experience with their immersive guided view technology and makes discovering and reading comic books easier and more fun than ever before. Well, tons of features that existed in the previous ComiXology app are gone after Amazon takes over Comixology. Though Amazon has recently updated Comixology, quite frankly, it is absolutely terrible. It is just a MESS! So backing up your Comixology books might be a good idea for you to customize your reading experience.
