DC Comics brings graphic novels to Amazon's Kindle Fire

Amazon Kindle Fire
DC Comics has announced plans to release 100 of its digital graphic novels to Amazon's Kindle Fire.

The publisher is bringing its bestselling titles, including Watchmen, All-Star Superman, and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, exclusively to the e-reader.

"We're excited that DC Entertainment has made 100 of their graphic novels available for customers to read exclusively on our just-announced Kindle Fire," said Russ Grandinetti, vice president of Kindle Content.

"Some of these graphic novels, including Watchmen, the bestselling - and considered by many to be the greatest - graphic novel of all time, have never been available before in digital format, and we think customers will love them."

DC made its entire line day-and-date digital following the launch of its 'New 52' initiative on August 31. Its titles are currently available for a range of digital platforms, including iOS, Android and desktop computers.

Jim Lee, co-publisher of DC Entertainment, said: "We're thrilled to work with the leader in digital books to bring many of the world's most beloved and best-selling graphic novels to Kindle readers.

"We've learned from the success of DC Comics - 'The New 52' that making our graphic novels available whenever and wherever our readers want is critical to the future growth and health of our publishing businesses - both in print and digital format."

The Kindle Fire was unveiled earlier this week. Amazon has confirmed that the e-reader will debut in the US on November 15, priced at $199 (£127).
