Amazon today announced the Kindle debut of comiXology’s Guided View experience, now available on the Kindle app for iOS, Fire tablets and Android. With this update, Kindle readers can cinematically read from panel-to-panel at their own pace. Each Guided View experience is handcrafted by a comic lover to make sure fans can become immersed in reading their favorite comic books, even on the smallest screen. Guided View is delivered as part of a free, over-the-air update on the Kindle app for iOS, Fire tablets and Android.
“Our customers are passionate about comic books and we continuously look for ways to make their experience even better,” said David Naggar, Vice President, Kindle. “We are excited to debut comiXology’s best-in-class Guided View reading experience on Kindle.”
With Guided View, Kindle comic book fans will be able to lose themselves in over 85,000 digital comics and graphic novels like never before, making reading comics more immersive and enjoyable on any size device. Kindle Unlimited and Prime Reading members can experience Guided View on top Kindle comic titles like Lumberjanes, Hellboy, Pathfinder, Peanuts, and Star Trek.
“A good story is magical and you really feel that with comiXology’s Guided View with the way the story flows along,” said Joe Hill, bestselling author of the Locke and Key series of graphic novels. “There is nothing like it in comics, the feel of being swept along through a story. To me that is a kind of magic.”
“Part of realizing our audacious goal of making everyone on earth a comics, graphic novel, or manga fan is bringing the best reading experience to everyone, whether on comiXology or on Kindle,” said David Steinberger, CEO of comiXology, “Kindle comic book and graphic novel readers are going to love it.”
