The comiXology and Kindle apps are “merging” in December
After a generally disastrous “merging” of the web comiXology store with Amazon‘s web store, it looks like it’s take two as the comiXology app will be “merging” with the Kindle app in December.
Any comics previously purchased through comiXology are now visible in the Kindle app library and Amazon has boasted an “upgraded Kindle app experience.”
Individuals will still be able to use the comiXology app to read until December 4, 2023.
We’ve hear rumors of more changes behind the scenes and we’ll see if those pan out as well. Pour one out for comiXology, the (former) leader for digital comics. So much potential… squandered.

Hello Comics fans,
We’re writing to let you know about upcoming changes to the way that you will access and read your Comixology digital comics, graphic novels, and manga titles. On December 4, 2023, we will be merging the Comixology and Kindle applications on iOS, Android, and Fire OS. Starting today, any books previously purchased on Comixology will automatically be visible in your library on the Kindle app. The upgraded Kindle app experience is available now; however, you may continue reading your books in the Comixology app until December 4, 2023. You can read more about the upcoming changes here.
We’ve been hard at work upgrading the Kindle app to deliver the great digital comics, graphic novels, and manga experience you’re accustomed to in the Comixology app, including:
Your library in the Kindle app now groups your issues, volumes, and omnibuses from the same series together.
The Kindle app now allows you to hide and unhide specific comics, graphic novels, and manga in your library. Titles you’ve already set to hide via the Comixology app will automatically be hidden in the Kindle app.
With your complete library of books now conveniently in one place, you can select ‘Comics & Manga’ from the in-app filter menu to quickly find just your comics, graphic novels, and manga titles.
Members of Comixology Unlimited, Kindle Unlimited, or Amazon Prime can borrow comics, graphic novels, and manga titles directly in app. Tap the ‘Home’ button from the bottom nav, select the ‘Explore’ button in the top left directly under the search bar, then select the ‘Comics, Manga, and Graphic Novels’ button listed under the ‘More categories’ label. You may also continue to browse for content on the web via http://www.amazon.com/comixology.
You may also continue to read your Comixology books on the web via read.amazon.com. If you prefer to read on your Kindle E-reader, you can go to Your Content and Devices to send individual titles to download on your e-reader.
If you encounter any issues accessing your content, or have not yet merged your Comixology account with an Amazon login, please contact Customer Service for support:
Go to ‘Help with Something Else’ and select ‘eBooks, Prime Videos or Music.’
Then click ‘Kindle eBooks/Digital Content/Comics’ and select the subcategory best related to your question.
We look forward to continuing to serve you,
The Comixology team
