Comic Foundry to Cease Publishing

I was sorry to hear that Comic Foundry, “the best comic magazine being published” (to quote myself), will stop publishing after issue 5. Editor-in-Chief Tim Leong posted today

I’m sorry to admit that I’ve reached the unfortunate point where my career no longer allows enough time to do the magazine. “If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well,” my high school journalism teacher used to say. In this case, I’d rather cease publication than put out issues we don’t have time to devote to fully.

I can sympathize — it’s a feeling I’m sure any writer/blogger/journalist with a day job has struggled with. The last issue is due out in February, and (refreshingly), they promise

If you have a subscription with pending issues you’ll be reimbursed. (Again, finances are not the reason for our early departure).
