Sorry, comic book stores.

Huh. I thought these already existed, but maybe I'm confusing them with those freestanding kiosks: according to Publishers Weekly, Barnes & Noble recently announced plans to create dedicated sections for middle grade graphic novels in all of its stores. The new sections will "collect more than 250 book format comics titles aimed at children and preteens in one central location in each B&N store... and will be located adjacent to the Young Readers areas in each store’s children’s dept." I feel strongly that graphic novels can inspire a love of reading, so part of me is happy about anything that makes them more widely available, but here's hoping some of those graphic-novel-reading pre-teens venture into some actual comics shops, too.
