The executive told Newsarama that the Amazon e-reader will take digital books "to the next level", making it a "great fit" for comics.
"Amazon has demonstrated they know e-books, and they know how to deliver them in a compelling way to mass audiences," said Kanalz.
"The Kindle is one of the most popular consumer electronic devices out there today and Kindle Fire takes that to the next level - it's a great fit for our graphic novels."
DC previously announced plans to release 100 of its bestselling books for the device, including Watchmen, All-Star Superman and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns.
Kanalz added: "We tried to come up with a broad mix of titles that will interest many readers, and we also wanted to offer some well-known titles like Watchmen, Fables, The Sandman, and Superman: Earth One.
"Our periodical strategy has been similar, and well received. Books from different eras, creators, price points, in addition to our same day digital offerings, populate our weekly uploads so that there should always be something for everyone to enjoy."
The Kindle Fire debuts in the US on November 15, priced at $199 (£127).
