Fangoria Comics shuts the doors

Fangoria Comics does comics. If you're somewhat clever, you'll probably be able to deduce that they do horror comics. Not anymore. The comics line was announced in June 2007, and a scant few months later it is no more. In a press release on their website, Scott Licina (former executive editor) had this to say: "To be honest, we’ve anticipated this possibility for quite some time, long before we finally launched on June 13, 2007 after almost a year of delays on Creative Group's part; that was after we announced the line in July of 2006 at the San Diego Comic-Con International. It became more and more apparent with the recent closings of several divisions and the lay-offs that accompanied them, other announced projects like Vampirella that failed to materialize and the fact that we received virtually no marketing or promotional support in any way, not even in the company's own Fangoria or Starlog magazines, that there may be trouble ahead.” Not exactly the most encouraging of quotes, as it seems the company was doomed from the start. The good news is that all the artists/writers will maintain creative rights to their works, and will finish what they started as best they can. The bad news is, obviously, Fangoria Comics has shut down. Fangoria Comics no more
