Tony Ingram writes about the departure of the print iteration of the long-running British kids' comics here. I think that's an incredibly long run for any publication, and I can't imagine being sad in the slightest if it were to end altogether now. I think there's a tendency among comics fans of a certain age to think everything is immortal because their perception of the two primary markets for comics are filled with characters and concepts that seem as if they'll go on until the universe itself collapses. But for the most part, there's a limited life to creations and creative enterprises.
