You can download as many e-magazines and e-comics as you want.

You can keep e-magazines permanently but e-comics are borrowed for a period of 1 week.

At the end of the loan period, the system returns the e-comic automatically. The item will show as expired on your device and you will be able to choose to hide it or renew it. You can renew an e-comic after the loan period expired but not before.
