Following Barnes & Noble's lead, book retailer Books-A-Million also has pulled it's DC Graphic Novels from shelves. The move is in response to DC's deal with the Amazon Kindle Fire.
Company CEO of BAM, Terrance Finley said on the move:
Due to DC Comics plan to sell the digital format of their top 100 graphic novels exclusively through Amazon's Kindle Fire, BAM Stores are currently removing physical copies of these titles from our shelves." Finley said that supporting any publisher that "selectively limits distribution of their content," is not in the interest of BAM customers. "We will not promote titles in our stores showrooms if publishers choose to pursue these exclusive arrangements that create an uneven playing field in the marketplace.
