Doonesbury and Dilbert comics now available on the Kindle Fire

By

Today Amazon has announced that two anthologies of the Doonesbury and Dilbert comic strips are available exclusively on Kindle Fire. These comic collections are available in full color and displayed with Kindle Panel View, a proprietary technology that offers customers an immersive comic and graphic novel reading experience.

Doonesbury and Dilbert comic strips are available today for the first time ever in digital format, exclusively on Kindle Fire.  “40: A Doonesbury Retrospective,” by Garry Trudeau, will be available in four volumes, each spanning a decade from 1970 to 2010.  “Dilbert 2.0,” by Scott Adams, will also be available in four volumes, respectively subtitled: “The Early Years, 1989 to 1993,” “The Boom Years, 1994 to 1997,” “The Dot-Com Bubble, 1998 to 2000” and “The Modern Era, 2001 to 2008.”

“40: A Doonesbury Retrospective” by Garry Trudeau marks Doonesbury’s 40th anniversary with an in-depth examination of the characters that have given the comic strip such vitality over the years.  Trudeau was the first comic strip artist ever to be awarded a Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning in 1975.  The series is available in four volumes for $9.99 each: 1970-1979, 1980-1989, 1990-1999 and 2000-2010.

Amazon is really making a strong push for graphic novels and comic books on its Kindle Fire platform. Recently they managed to secure an exclusive agreement with DC Comics that phased out Comixology as the main distributor.
