I couldn’t resist the snarky headline. Newsarama announced this morning (link no longer available) that they had been acquired by Imaginova, “a digital media and commerce company focused on science and technology”.
The new parent dubbed their acquisition “comic book industry’s most popular news source” and in their press release (link no longer available), “the media property of record for the global comic book community.” It’s their first purchase in the “genre entertainment” field. Hopefully, they’ll learn why this sentence is in error: “Newsarama is the source for anyone interested in the comic book genre.” Also,
Newsarama Senior Editors Michael Doran and Matt Brady will join the staff of Imaginova’s award-winning editorial team and will continue to oversee the day-to-day operations of the site.
I wonder how long that will last? After all, this means that it’s not their site any more, right? I’m certain that the company wants to keep their expertise, though. Christopher Butcher responds to announcement response.
