Barnes & Noble Removes 100 DC Graphic Novels

In response to a recent exclusive deal between Amazon and DC Entertainment, Barnes & Noble will remove 100 DC graphic novels from its shelves. This includes Superman, Batman and Watchmen.

Barnes & Noble chief merchant Jaime Carey released this statement: “Regardless of the publisher, we will not stock physical books in our stores if we are not offered the available digital format. To sell and promote the physical book in our store showrooms and not have the ebook available for sale would undermine our promise to Barnes & Noble customers to make available any book, anywhere, anytime.”

The Wall Street Journal has more: “The move follows the Sept. 29 disclosure by DC Entertainment that it struck an exclusive agreement with Amazon.com Inc. to make the titles available for Amazon’s new Kindle Fire tablet, expected to ship Nov. 15.”
