Barnes and Noble Pulls DC Graphic Novels

In what can only be described as retaliation, Barnes and Noble has announced they will be pulling DC graphic novels from their shelves. DC recently announced they will be releasing several graphic novels, to include the Watchmen, exclusively on the new Kindle Fire tablet.

I hope DC received a large payout, because there most certainly will be backlash. You want to force readers to purchase one specific device to read your comics? No thanks, I’ll pass. The consumer is definitely the loser here, so I for one will vote with my wallet – bye-bye DC graphic novels. It will be interesting to see how long this lasts. I won’t be surprised if there is a move to lock in more exclusives on each device now that Amazon and DC have launched the opening salvo in this new front in the tablet wars. I think I’ll be staying out of the crossfire.

    Now, this makes sense. You don't yell at a two year old (or 13 year old) throwing a tantrum — you calmly speak in a softer voice, so they have to quiet down, to hear you. That is, the adult sets the direct for the innMeaction.routt up the SWAT team and you challenge the bad guys to stand up to those nasty dudes — with bigger ATF-supplied weapons, with more rounds, with more trigger pullers. With communications gear, with planning, with mind tricks.Good point, Tam.

  2. E cuidado com a formação, pareçe que não pagam a treinadores, observadores com mais de um ano por receber logo estão parados e ainda não houve observações este ano. é a nossa bandeira a formação e estes meninos andam a brincar com a nossa galinha dos ovos de ouro, pareçe que já andamos a perder miudos valiosos para o nosso rival.

  3. This “free sharing” of information seems too good to be true. Like communism.

  4. I read your post and wished I was good enough to write it

  5. It is over…I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot m…

  6. I like the concept of advertising for some of our local businesses, such as Ella’s, Healthmutt, and the Cleanse Apothecary. You could get some inexpensive TV advertising for Seminole Heights businesses in general on the local cable networks (Verizon and Bright House). Some billboards on I-275, to entice people to get off the highway and stop at these businesses, would be nice too. Maybe a partnership between the business guild and the neighborhood assn. would make sense to pay for the ads.

    “No 13th-century Frenchman would have labeled himself as “a Catholic.” He did not call himself anything, any more than Sam Harris.”Quite untrue. See .

  10. Cyndee – this blog maybe has 90 entries for the last 9 months. Several of them were written by Todd Carpenter, and a few were written by others. I guess I don’t have time to post often. As for the record not sure I qualify.

  14. 79, Zephid: You Must have me confused with someone else because my comment (#61) didn’t mention anything about whether I approved or disapproved of the eventual signing of Barnes. All I did was state the Length & Value of the Contract, according 2 the report.

  15. I support the protest against bank closures in Schull and Ballydehob – this spells disaster for the local businesses as people will do their shopping where they bank their money. It is also a real problem for older people or people who don’t drive, and live in these communities.I couldn’t see any petition to sign but I’m sending this instead.
