That's one of the things I was curious about. Reading on a small device would be frustrating, and a small e-ink device would be almost useless for graphic content. I read graphic novels on my Nook HD+, which they're practically giving away now that B&N is going out of the tablet business, and it does a great job. I assume the 8.9 inch fire would be an equivalent experience. But then I thought maybe the complaint was specifically with the Kindle software and its handling of comics. I use ComicRack, which I love, but it wouldn't work with the drm-content you'd purchase through the Amazon store.
