DC Comics Fails Over Kindle App Availability

That’s the tweet sent out at the end of September, assuring people as the news streamed out that DC Comics were getting into bed with Amazon Kindle Fire, that they would be able to access these one hundred digital graphic novels on their Apple iPads, say.

However, when the books went live for downloading yesterday, people with Kindle Apps on iPads and the like, discovered that this wasn’t true. The DC Comics are specifically Kindle device exclusive, as can be seen below.

When asked to explain the discrepency, DC Comics declined to answer.


UPDATE: I’ve been led to understand that this may actually be a technical rather than a legal issue. Different devices do have different fomats to be optimised for and a hundred graphic novels is a lot of content…
