Another comics line bites the dust.

Just one month after word came down from on high that the short-lived Virgin Comics line was closing down* comes news of yet another good comics imprint folding. DC/Vertigo's Minx line was geared toward the same teenage girl audience as highly popular Japanese shojo manga, mixing imaginative storylines with cutting-edge artwork to create some of the best new comics available today. There's more on the announcement here, here and here. Sigh...

*BTW, today the announcement came that Virgin Comics was sold to Liquid Comics. Let's hope they'll resurrect some of those great properties.
