Barnes and Noble

Hey you lot, remember when DC Comics announced that they would be bringing 100 digital graphic novels exclusively to the Kindle Fire? I do, too! Well, apparently Barnes and Noble heard about this (they must read my work), and got all angry and decided that it would be in their best interest to pull each of these DC books from their physical store shelves, because… I’m sorry it really doesn’t make sense to me.

Anyway, what it really boils down to is that Barnes and Noble wanted these comics available through their eReader, the Nook, and when that didn’t happen, they flat out got mad and decided to straight up pull the comics off their shelves. The problem? From what I’m reading, the DC Comics Kindle Fire exclusive was to be a specific amount of time, so The Nook and iBooks would probably get them within the next four months. Overreaction, much? Indeed. Another problem is that the market is not the same for physical and digital. The digital audience is, for the most part, much more casual than physical medium readers who like very much to have the feel of the book in their hands. So taking away the physical copy from your store just takes away money that the store could make. This flat out makes no sense to me.

But, if you’re currently looking for a physical copy of Sandman, Watchmen, or The Dark Knight Returns, there are plenty of great places to pick them up in the direct market. I mean, not all of us have Nooks, iPads, or Kindle Fires. So, go here to find out where you can pick up all these wonderful comics.
