David Astor Leaving Editor & Publisher

I've been informed via e-mail that David Astor at Editor & Publisher has been let go in what is apparently a cost-cutting move by the newspaper industry magazine, exactly the sort of story one would expect Astor to cover with authority during his run at the magazine and their vitally important on-line site.

Astor's coverage of comics and syndication news wasn't just important to what we're able to do here with the CR blog, I think it made him clearly the #1 journalist in the U.S. routinely covering comics. I can't even imagine what the resulting hole in coverage is going to be like. We wish him all the best in future endeavors, and are thankful we got to link to his work at E&P for so many years.
