Industry-Leading Graphic Novel and Comic Publisher to offer 100 Digital Books Exclusively to Kindle Customers

DC Entertainment, the first publisher to offer more than fifty comic book titles on the same day in digital and print, is now taking the world of digital books by storm. The comic book giant has worked with Amazon to bring 100 of its original graphic novels exclusively to Amazon's newly announced Kindle Fire, including best-selling graphic novels WATCHMEN, BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY and SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE, which are available for the first time digitally.

"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. "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."

"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, 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 Entertainment graphic novels will be available to Kindle Fire customers. WATCHMEN and SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE are available for pre-order now in the Kindle Store and readers can soon purchase other DC Entertainment graphic novels.

There will be 100 DC Entertainment titles available in the Kindle Store, with more titles to be added in the near future. The Superman related titles available in the initial release include: All Star Superman, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Identity Crisis, Kingdom Come, Superman for All Seasons, & Superman: Earth One.
