Does anyone know why you can only view comic books on only some of the Kindles and apps?? Cause I downloaded some comic books and their only available to be viewed on some devices. I can only see them right now on Kindle app for my phone and not my Macbook or the cloud reader. I'm relatively new to downloading comic books on Kindle so I'm quite confused.

The publishers decide which devices their can be downloaded to.

Comics will only show up on devices that have Kindle Panel View. Amazon determines which devices devices have panel view, not publishers.

Here are a list of those devices.

Copied from Kindle Help: These titles are currently compatible with Kindle, Kindle Fire, Kindle Fire HD, Kindle for iPad, Kindle Cloud Reader, and Kindle for Android (running app version 3.5 or greater).

If you have had one of these devices or apps for a while, it may need to be updated to the KF8 (Kindle Format 8) software or latest software for that device/app. If it has not been updated, the comics may not show up or work. Generally, when downloading, Amazon will tell you whether your device or app is compatible with the content you are about to purchase. If it is compatible with more than one device, you can view all compatible devices by using the dropdown list. This is the list where you select which device you want to use for download. If your device is not listed, it is not compatible.

So, best guess, if it is compatible and does not work, it is an outdated software issue. Click here for software update page.

If the link does not work, Click Help at the top of the screen. Then in the HELP search box, not the first search box at the top of the page, type in Software Updates and click. It will take you where you need to go.

Related to this, I noticed just today that for some graphic novels, Panel View works on the Kindle Fire but not in the iPad Kindle reader - the graphic novel is viewable, but the Panel View functions don't work. (Double tapping just zooms on a section like a photo or standard image would, not as Panel View) anybody else seeing this? (Happened on Green Lantern Vol. 3, Wanted: Hal Jordan) Panel View had worked previously on the iPad, and still works for that title on the Fire.
