eBook Sales

Just how important are sales of eBooks?

In order to sell its digital graphic novels and comic books exclusively on the new Amazon Kindle Fire for four months, DC Comics is willing to forgo sales of paper versions of its products in Barnes and Noble stores for the same four months.

According the the Los Angeles Times:
Barnes & Noble said Friday it will not stock physical copies of 100 of DC's graphic novels that the Warner Bros.-owned unit is making available exclusively on competitor's Kindle platform, including the upcoming Kindle Fire tablet.

DC Comics prefers to ride Amazon's Kindle marketing wave leading up to Christmas than to put paper versions on bookshelves. DC Comics probably has looked at pre-orders for the hot Kindle Fire and decided that 300,000 to 400,000 people will be searching for content for their new tablets, especially in the days after Christmas.

That's how important eBooks sales are.


  1. Tamiloneindia was founded over 5 years ago. From the beginning, Tamil One India dominated the print landscape as the source for a conversation about independent and underground cinema. Since then, the website has continued the tradition set forth by the magazine; a lone voice shouting into the void of mainstream media, that there is more to film than summer blockbusters and celebrity gossip.
