DC Digital Graphic Novels & Collected Editions Exclusively On Amazon Kindle Fire

After its unveiling earlier this week, we noticed Amazon’s new Kindle Fire device might be a solid comics reader option. DC Comics’ principal digital partner, comiXology, was and is ready to roll on the device, with its Comics app logo sitting pretty in Amazon’s official press photos of the Fire, which also featured images of DC Comics products like Watchmen and Superman: Earth One. As it turns out, DC Comics will be offering its products to Kindle Fire users directly through Amazon’s Kindle store. What’s more, those products will be of the long demanded “digital trade” variety, i.e. graphic novels and collected editions, as opposed to 20-24-page single issue periodicals. These DC digital products will be available exclusively on the Kindle Fire.

Watchmen and Superman: Earth One are available for pre-order now in the Kindle Store, each priced at $9.99, which is 50 percent less than the print versions. As part of its deal with Amazon, DC will make 100 graphic novels/collected editions available at launch exclusively in the Kindle Store, with more to follow. Those include books from DC’s WildStorm and Vertigo imprints as well as MAD Magazine. and you can check out the full list after the cut.”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,” stated Jim Lee, co-publisher of DC Entertainment, in a press release posted to The Source. “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.”

It’s uncertain at this time whether Lee’s “whenever and wherever our readers want” remark applies to iPad users, who’ve certainly made up a huge component of DC’s digital comics business so far. Traditionally, iPad users have been able to purchase and enjoy Kindle products via Amazon’s Kindle app for Apple’s iOS devices. We are presently investigating whether that popular function will apply to DC’s Kindle comics, but it seems likely that it will.

There’s sure to be more on this story in the coming days, but for now check out the list of DC graphic novels and collected editions the publisher plans on issuing via Amazon’s service. There are the perennials like Watchmen, All Star Superman and The Dark Knight Returns, but also multiple volumes of key WildStorm titles like Planetary and Vertigo hits like The Sandman, Y: The Last Man and critical favorite Daytripper. There are even products from MAD.
