Regarding Mainstream Bookstore Distribution:
"But [Pantheon Editorial Director Dan] Frank, who recalled "the tremendous amount of difficulty" he experienced in 2000 getting traditional bookstores to stock the critically-acclaimed Chris Ware graphic novel, Jimmy Corrigan, the Smartest Kid on Earth, remarked that "even to this day [we] can have trouble with the more traditional chains. They don’t know quite where to put some of our things." [Source]
