The end of the year has proven to be precarious for the publishing industry. CosmoGirl, Cottage Living, and Radar all suffered untimely ends, and this trend has now begun affecting the niche of comics journalism.
Our own Lucas Siegel reported yesterday about the demise of Comic Foundry, which had been running on-and-off for years through the work of several unpaid staffers. Meanwhile, it was reported today that TwoMorrow’s magazine Write Now! will also be shuttered in Februrary, after its issue on the Spirit.
All this upheaval, while scary in its own right, leaves me with one question: with all the young turks out of commission, I wonder how this will affect the health of the Wizard publications?
