Starting July 18, Barnes and Noble will launch a three week celebration of different aspects of pop-culture -- or, quite frankly, fandoms -- in what's clearly an effort to bring people into its brick-and-mortar stores.

Barnes and Noble has unveiled its new Nook Tablet, a new touchscreen device designed for, among other functions, reading digital books -- including comics.
