Probably an amateur question, but my novel will have kind of a comic-book in the prologue, and I'm really looking forward to doing it, but in my experiments with uploading, my color pics won't come out in anything except black and white.

Help? I'm not using HTML, is that where I'm going wrong?

The online Preview and all e-ink Kindles show only grayscale. The Fire and the various Kindle apps show color. There are say five and a half million Fires out there, but many times that number of e-inkers. Nobody knows how many people read on the apps (I am one!).

I think a lot of people have an app for PC, phone or tablet.

I believe when you upload the book and get the test book there is instructions in a box just under the preview that says "if you want to see how it would look in other kindle formats click here for instructions"... I did not try it as I didn't need mine to be in color, but it would be worth looking into.
