Say it ain't so!
Tom Spurgeon has the story.
This is a cost cutting measure, and it's rotten news. Dave Astor has been an writer and editor with Editor & Publisher for years. Dave covered the syndicated cartoon world with intelligence and diligence. And he also shined the E&P light on graphic novels, Web comics and manga. This is a wrenching loss. Dave is not the kinda guy you do this to. Dave writes the content at E&P that I read every day. E&P's value has diminished substantially.
