Zudacomics.com Shuts down!


In a statement on the official Zuda Comics blog (http://zuda.blog.dccomics.com/), DC Comics have announced that effective today, www.zudacomics.com will be shut down!

Zuda stated that the reason for the decision is simple: “It is the new DC Co-Publishers’ plan to expand submissions beyond just Zuda Comics and the Online group into a larger, more comprehensive system that covers all of DC Comics’ wide variety of needs, skills and interests”. They add that “Jim and Dan are very excited about bringing in and developing new talent so look for more information about that from them as plans develop”.

Apparently, Zuda Comics will be folded into DC Comics’ new Digital Publishing initiative, so we should see  more Zuda series to be released through the DC Comics and comiXology Apps, the Sony PSP and on both the comiXology website and, eventually, the main DC Comics website as well.

I have to say, I am incredibly sad to see the site go! I’ve really enjoyed seeing all of the new submissions, each month, and watching the frantic race to win the monthly competition.

The Zuda experiment has produced so many brilliant comics over the last two and a half years; wonderful series like David Gallagher and Steve Ellis’ High Moon, Jeremy Love’s Bayou, The Night Owls, The Black Cherry Bombshells, Sidewise, The Hammer, Road, In Maps & Legends, Street-Code, and many, many more!

*sigh*, It was fun while it lasted…
