Graphic Novels for Kindle readers

Amazon is slowly starting to add some of this genre to its Kindle list.


Nerdblog reports: “According to Publisher Archaia will bring four original graphic novels to Amazon’s Kindle platform over the next 12 months, the publisher announced.  These graphic novels will also be available for the Kindle iPhone and iPod Touch apps.

“Elk’s Run” creators Joshua Hale Fialkov and Noel Tuazon will kick off the program with “Tumor.”

Tumor is a Los Angeles noir about a private investigator with a terminal brain tumor trying to close one last case before the cancer kills him. It will be released as eight individual chapters over the next six months that will then be collected into a hardcover edition.

The first chapter of Tumor is available now on the Kindle for free, with subsequent chapters priced at 99 cents.   Writer Fialkov is pleased to bring his story to this new format.

“I’ve loved my Kindle from Day One, and as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted Tumor to be available for the platform,” said Fialkov in a release. “Archaia understood that the Kindle is a unique opportunity to get their comics out there and into the hands of a whole new fanbase who are avid book readers, but may have not read a graphic novel in years.”

You can check out Tumor for the Kindle here:

Chapter Two will be released during the week of August 3rd, and each subsequent chapter will be released every three weeks.   More information about Tumor is available at

Also coming up for the Kindle is Mr. Murder is Dead, co-published by Before the Door Pictures, which is Zachary Quinto’s publishing company.  Mr. Murder is dead is a black and white original graphic novel written by Victor Quinaz.”
