Word comes to Bleeding Cool that Barnes & Noble, previously moving into periodical American comic books in a big way, may be performing a bit of a reverse ferret.
One Barnes & Noble senior figure told a Bleeding Cool source after San Diego Comic Con that the program has been a “failed experiment” and hadn’t worked out as they hoped, hinting that they were probably going to pull the plug.
Although it sounds as if there may be a digital comics initiative from Barnes & Noble to come.
UPDATE: A Barnes & Noble spokesman, Mary Ellen Keating, gets in touch to tell me “We’ve expanded our business in the comic book business and the results to date have been spectacular.” Which is great news, but it does indicate that not everyone in the higher echelons is pleased with that success.
