Myspace just announced
that it will be cutting its staff by 30%, calling its current workforce "bloated" and laying off over 400 employees. But what does this mean for comic book fans
, you ask selfishly? Well, according to our sources, it means that Myspace Comic Books
, a site on the social network that hosted comic book previews from Marvel, DC, Image, Boom!, and most notably Myspace Dark Horse Presents
, will soon be no more.
There are plenty of comic book sites hosting previews of superhero comics, so don't cry too hard, but I did enjoy the online-only Dark Horse comics, so I hope they find themselves a new home. In brighter news, ComicsAlliance will be posting an exclusive preview originally intended for Myspace -- along with a creator guest blog -- this Thursday, so check back then!
