I'm really sorry to see this happen. Yes, it was a shell of its former self, barely above pamphlet size but I still enjoyed reading Mr. Silver Age, Tony Isabella, and Michelle Nolan among others. Sad to see a long running mag like this go, particularly a comics mag. Though the interwebs is tops for breaking news I think there was still a place for reviews and columns in print form.

Be interesting to see how Bleeding Cool's new comic mag does - they've only done one issue so far and it was okay but nothing terrific. Sold really well though.

Back in the day I had somewhere between 10 to 12 letters published in CBG. Used to always look forward to its weekly arrival and made some new friends because of it and had an old friend find me via CBG. When I started to lose my enjoyment of new comics I bailed out. When it went monthly I picked up a few issues but lost interest pretty quickly.
