Overview

Formatting comics and image-heavy eBooks can be a confusing and sometimes frustrating task. Every e-reader on the market has a different screen size, meaning that as a creator/publisher, you have to format your comic multiple times.

UPDATE: This ebook includes new processes for preparing your comic for the Nook, using our new, resizable ePub template (available as a free download when you buy this ebook).

This how-to guide covers how to assemble your comic pages or other images for the two biggest e-readers on the market: Amazon's Kindle and Barnes & Noble's Nook.

Written by the creative team for the ground-breaking digital comic IN MAPS & LEGENDS (artist Niki Smith and writer Michael Jasper), this eBook covers how to convert the images for your comic into the Kindle and Nook formats, and how to package those images in the most effective manner for those two formats.

The creators also share what they have learned about digital comic distribution for sites other than Amazon.com and BN.com. For more information, please visit
