Virgin Comics down

I tried Devi, and Snakewoman..but the Virgin Comics stories just weren't my cup. But the glossy paper and art was nice, and the focus on Eastern Stories...New York office shut down. I have wanted to buy more for the library in trade.

Virgin Comics, the high-profile 2006 international joint venture between Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Group and the India-based comics publisher Gotham Entertainment, has been shut down.....The closing appears to effect only Virgin Comics’ U.S. publishing operations in New York City and does not effect the operations of Gotham Entertainment, the Bangalore, India-based partner in the venture that produces comics targeted at the South Asian consumer market.

I say this in complete ignorance of their published comics, but I saw this coming from the start. Their big promises came across as if they were saying "Step aside, amateurs -- with our deep pockets and vertical media connections we'll show you how the big boys do it right!" Sorry, guys, but publishing of any sort (comics or otherwise) is a tough road, littered with dilettantes who thought it would be easy money. You do it for love or not at all.
