Have you ever wished that you could have your favorite comic book issues in the palm of your hand without waiting for a store to open or for the mail carrier to drop them off at your doorstep? Digital comics allow you to view comics and graphic novels on your computer or favorite e-reader such as an iPad or other device, whenever you want, wherever you are.
Many comic book fans enjoy the portability of digital comics, as well as the fact that they don't need a physical place to store their collections. Also, you can access your digital purchases instantly, without waiting for them to be shipped to you.
You'll first need to have a ComiXology account to start the process. Click here to create a ComiXology account. Next, click through comiXology's portal to create your accounts (or log in). Now you're all set to purchase digital comics through comiXology.com and read them via web browser, or via your ComiXology Digital app on your e-reader.
Create a ComiXology Digital Account: Visit the ComiXology Digital Portal and follow the steps below:
You do need a valid email address to sign up for an account with ComiXology. In addition, if you would like to qualify for future promotional discounts from 1UpCollectibles.com, please make sure that the accounts you set up with ComiXology use the same email address as your 1UpCollectibles.com account. To view your purchases, you will need access to a computer that is connected to the Internet or one of the mobile devices supported by the app.
An e-reader is a mobile electronic device that is designed primarily for the purpose of reading digital e-books and periodicals. These can be tablet computers like the iPad or Samsung Galaxy Tab. You can also access your digital comics via smartphones like the iPhone or Samsung Note.
Can I access digital comics if I don't have an e-reader? E-readers are not required to view your digital comics. To view your ComiXology comics via your computer's web browser, click through the ComiXology Digital portal at 1UpCollectibles.com, log in, and click "My Books."
Digital comics are an exciting new prospect in the comic book community. Some publishers have embraced the delivery method and are offering comic book issues for purchase both in-store and digitally on the same day.
We've partnered with ComiXology to provide this service to our customers. If you're experiencing difficulties with your ComiXology application (APP), please contact ComiXology Customer Support for assistance.
Currently, ComiXology does not offer automatic digital subscriptions.
Not at this time. Purchases are made separately through our digital partners, not through 1upCollectibles.com.
Your digital comics purchases are made separately through our digital partners, so we don't have access to purchases made there.
You should be able to access your digital comics via different computers/mobile devices by logging in via those devices, so if you upgrade your e-reader device or computer, you won't lose access to your purchases. You may need to re-download material to the new device, however.
Currently, Comixology can be viewed via web browser, on Apple iOS devices such as the iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad, and via devices powered by the Android operating system.
Comixology accepts Discover, Visa, Mastercard, and American Express.
Since digital comics purchases are made through our digital partners we cannot combine digital and print orders. Stay tuned for future developments!
Again, we do not currently have anything in place, but stay tuned for future developments!
