Comics Alliance Closed By AOL

indexCBR’s Robot 6 has the news. Comics Alliance’s parent company AOL has pulled the plug on the site.

Launched by Laura Hudson, Comics Alliance became a home for intelligent reviews, hilarious snark, outraged reaction and curious cosplay.  I was told by CA contributors of issues with AOL owners/managers over content – though editor Andy Khouri says that is “horseshit”. Hudson left the site for Wired last year, but some of the savage bite that it was famous for had been toned down.

They had no coverage of C2E2 – which wasn’t that usual of weekends of late- but now it seems official. Caleb Goellner did post this link ink today, but there had been nothing for three days previous.

Expect a raid on all their very, very talented writers. Naturally, of course, Bleeding Cool is interested in, well, anyone who wrote for Comics Alliance, if you would lower yourselves. Andrew Wheeler? We’d have you back like a shot.

What will happen to the content, I have no idea. I’m glad this didn’t happen now.

UPDATE: Conspiracy theorists in the forums, AOL and TimeWarner are different companies now, folks.
