Another one for the history books
Well, I was just taking down the sidebar link for Speakeasy Comics due to their recent sudden, yet not wholly unexpected demise and I got to thinking about all the publishers I've seen leave the stage in the past 18 years we've been around.
in the majors and a whole slew of smaller publishes that remain just a listing in the yearly Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide. Now, not everything published by all those companies was Pulitzer material, but there were a lot of gems amongst the silt... like GRIMJACK, MIRACLEMAN, MISTER X, VIETNAM JOURNAL, BAKER STREET, ARCHER & ARMSTRONG, ALIEN WORLDS, ELEMENTALS, RALPH SNART, and many, many more.
It's sad in a way, because with every publisher that goes under there is one less place from which to launch your comic book vision... and we are all a bit diminished by each one's passing.
