NextComics Shuts Down

Alexander Danner notes in his blog that Next Comics has shut down operations. In fact, the domain name ( has expired so the only place to still read the final post from publishers Arni Gunnarsson, Mal Jones, Joe Szilagyi, Mike Sims and John Hirbour is at Danner’s blog.

From all reports, Next Comics published at least a few ongoing projects but with fewer and fewer updates throughout 2003. Sadly the publishing staff at Next Comics appears to have made no plans to save the work published on their site and leaves it up to the creators (hopefully the creators had backup copies of work submitted to Next Comics).
