  2. Select "Create Account".
  3. Read through the terms and conditions and click "Accept".
  4. Enter your e-mail address and a password, then select "Next".
  5. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address that you entered. When it arrives, click the link in the e-mail to confirm your e-mail address and activate your account.
  6. Once you have confirmed your e-mail, select “Continue” on the InkyPen application.
  7. Select “Go to Payment” and enter your payment information.
    • InkyPen is a subscription service that provides access to their entire comic catalog. Payment is required to use the service.
    • If you have a code to redeem, select "Redeem Code" and enter your code when prompted.
  8. Select the desired content age rating to complete your account activation.
    • Once an age rating is set, content will be restricted to that age for everyone that uses the application. Content with a higher age rating will not appear in the InkyPen application.
