DC Comics to come to Nook tablets, return to B&N brick and mortar stores

Remember back in October when DC Comics’s exclusive agreement with Amazon led to Barnes & Noble and Books a Million pulling DC comics and graphic novels from their stores? Apparently the period of exclusivity has expired, as DC has announced its comics will now be available for the Nook Tablet and Nook Color as well. Barnes & Noble is also adding some new features specifically for comic-book reading, the press release notes:

With the addition of DC Entertainment content, Barnes & Noble is also introducing Zoom View, an all-new NOOK Comics feature designed for NOOK Tablet and NOOK Color. Zoom View allows readers to focus in on individual panels in graphic novels and comics, allowing them to fully enjoy the stunning artwork and compelling storytelling that brings this genre to life. Zoom View will be immediately available on all DC Entertainment titles.

This also means that the physical editions of DC’s comics will once again be available in Barnes & Noble stores, which will undoubtedly make comic book fans happy.
