    No graphic novels?!? Single issues I can understand, but GRAPHIC NOVELS?!?!?

  • Barnes and Noble just confirmed with us, that Marvel has suspended single issue comics in ALL bookstores. Graphic Novels will be available at B&N because they are actually sourced by Hachette.

    No reason given? Who wrote this article?

  • Michael Kozlowski

    Official spokesman of Barnes and Noble and Books-a-million both reached out to me today, and have said Marvel has suspended retail distribution of single issue comics. They made sure to point out, its just not their stores, its ALL OF RETAIL. So, Marvel has basically suspended any bookstore now from buying single issue comics. I reached out to Marvel PR, but they have not replied yet.

    Okay, Our original article ran at 9am ET on the 27th after we’d, um, sat on it for a few days over Christmas, yours (using the same BC image) ran later in the day and seemed to replicate BC info, before getting official comment (well done on that). We’ll be running an update, linking back here. Your call if you think it’s necessary to credit any research done by BC. Talking of which, since you link to it, http://goodereader.com/blog/digital-comic-news/marvel-ar-marvel-unlimited-and-digital-comics-to-combine-into-a-singular-app seems to reference information only previously available at http://www.bleedingcool.com/2013/11/18/marvel-rumoured-to-undergo-the-biggest-digital-comics-transition-to-date-the-industry-will-quake/ but again its your call.
