OverDrive is a leading digital reading platform, supplying the industry’s largest catalog of eBooks, audiobooks and streaming video to 36,000 libraries and schools worldwide, including 90 percent of all public libraries in the U.S.

The latest additions, which augment over 100 other VIZ Media series already available on OverDrive, span an impressive range of action/adventure, sci-fi, fantasy, drama and romance titles by some of manga’s most popular and revered creators.

Guided View Comes to Kindle

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.

This is something I predicted way back in 2014 as one of the things likely to happen when Amazon purchased comiXology (integration with Amazon log in was another that has come true).

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.
