File Size: 9871 KB
Publisher: Norton

Born in New York in 1917, Will Eisner was the author of the legendary comic strip "The Spirit." According to John Updike, "Eisner was not only ahead of his times - the present times are still catching up to him." A Contract With God is a revolutionary novel that re-creates the neighborhood of Will Eisner's youth through a quartet of four interwoven stories. Expressing the joy, exuberance, tragedy, and drama of life on the mythical Dropsie Avenue of the Bronx, A Contract With God is a monumental achievement, a must in the library of any graphic novel fan.

6- The Waiting Room ($.99)

File Size: 1215 KB
Publisher: coalminds.com

With the constant fluctuations in our reality, events on our Earth are bound to intersect with events on the thousands of other Earths that exist in nearby frequencies. Some of these intersections are harmless - a frozen rose petal falls through a hole in Terra 7.342 and becomes a real tear duct in a Virgin Mary statue in Mexico on Terra 11.573, for example. But when a death meant for someone on one Earth wrongfully ends the life of someone on another, the border patrol agents get involved. These agents, like Saul Terth, guide the dead to their next destination based on their previous life or lives. While their resumes are being reviewed, they take a seat in the waiting room. (UPDATE: No longer published.)

7- Valentine: Episode 01 ($.99)

Valentine - Episode 1Valentine - Episode 1File Size: 2672 KB
Publisher: Mephisto Wax

This is the debut episode of the acclaimed fantasy / thriller graphic novel series by comics writer Alex de Campi and artist Christine Larsen. During Napoleon's retreat from Russia in the War of 1812, cavalry officers Valentine and Oscar are separated from the main army by a brutal blizzard. They think the worst thing waiting out there in the snow for them is Death. They could not be more wrong.

The two soldiers stumble across an ancient conflict between beings more powerful than humanity can imagine, a conflict which now threatens to consume the Earth and all upon it – because those who have stood in the horror’s path, the few bastions of light, are going home. The Valentine series is available on Kindle in 13 different languages to choose from. (Buy here.)

Shades of Grey

I am not going to comment on the titles selected for your top ten but only want to mention that the Kindle 2 and Kindle DX are black and white displays and your picture of a Kindle DX with a color cover of Crude Behavior is a Photoshopped effect and not a true image of what users can expect. The Kindle website has the following to say about their edition of Crude Behavior:

"CRUDE BEHAVIOR is one of the first books to expose the current geo-political scene in vibrant color (or in this Kindle edition's case, is 16 slick shades of gray)."

Shades of Grey response

The images in this blog are for effect only. Like Amazon, I included color art of each book represented here. All the promos in the Kindle library on Amazon do the same.The disclaimer in the blog copy above and the previous comment referring to "16 shades of grey" is absolutely correct. Presently there is no eReader (Kindle or otherwise) that provides color graphics.
