After more than 4 decades, Comics Buyer’s Guide folding with March issue, 1 shy of 1,700
PHILADELPHIA — Krause Publications says it is folding the long-published Comics Buyer’s Guide with the March issue, blaming a decline in advertising and free content online for the demise of the magazine titles that began reporting on the comic book industry in 1971.
In a statement Wednesday, Krause blamed “poor market conditions” for the move. Issue No. 1,699 will be the last one published.
Krause, based in Wisconsin, is part of Cincinnati-based F+W Media Inc. The magazine’s website will remain active as an archive resource.
