Barnes & Noble Pulls DC Titles

Barnes & Noble yanked physical copies of 100 DC Comics titles from shelves after the publisher cut its first digital rights deal exclusively with Amazon for those books. The titles are scheduled to be released in conjunction with the launch of Amazon’s Kindle Fire, their first color e-reader. B&N said it is following company policy for dealing with publishers that release digital versions of titles without making them available to B&N, saying, “To sell and promote the physical book in our store showrooms and not have the e-book available for sale would undermine our promise… to make available any book, anywhere, anytime.” A DC spokesperson said the publisher was disappointed in the B&N decision.
