Formatting Comics for the Kindle and Nook: A Step-By-Step Guide to Images and Ebooks

I think it was outdated. It said the maximum size of a picture for Kindle was 525x640 pixels. My understanding is that the higher definition Kindles have resolutions up to 1600x2560. Perhaps I'm wrong. And does Amazon charge 15 cents per MB? That would mean I'd have to pay them more than I received.

In Maps & Legends #1 (of 9)

In the eight minutes it took me to read the whole thing, I was constantly asking myself what the *&%^ was happening. There were scene shifts that don't make any sense, and I only have a vague understanding of the characters. I kind of know where this is going, sort of a Spiderwick Chronicles but with Grandfather's map and not the faerie book. This is another case where a complete read, instead of being broken up into nine installments, would completely help, because I am sure my questions get answered. But I have no vested interest as to the rest of the story now that I have to stop reading.

In Maps & Legends #1 (of 9)
by Scott R. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/08/2011 13:53:40

In Maps & Legends has the distinction of being the first born-digital comic that I’ve read since I’ve been out of the comic-reading habit for quite a while. I have to say I enjoyed it and it left me wanting to read more. The artwork is distinctive and affecting, nicely decorative without the constraints of realism that I remember from good small press non-superhero comics from my misspent youth. I liked the stylized pen-and-ink lines and sparing use of Photoshop effects.

The plot is still rather nascent which is okay for a first issue. There were enough otherworldly cues to keep me interested and I liked the inclusion of the main characters’ clueless ex-boyfriend as a sort of Arthur Dent voice of normality constantly drunkenly agog at the strange things going on. That’s a good touch for a fantasy story.

Yeah when I have a chance I’ll do a follow up on the other issues in the series. In Maps & Legends is steampunk enough to feel postmodern (I’m taking a cue from the galleon/airship hybrid) and fanciful to feel like the old classics and I want to know where they are going with the plot and characters.

Shorter than I thought it would be, but had some good info. I don't think the size of a file is as important as the author suggests either.
