I’m Hearing Anime Insider Is Shuttered

imageI don't have confirmation, and I don't expect to get it, but I'm hearing rumors from the Wizard sources that have batted 1.000 thus far that Wizard Entertainment has canceled its Anime Insider magazine and let go its staff including Editor Summer Mullins. Anime Insider -- or what became Anime Insider -- has been around since I believe 2001 as one of Wizard's recurring specials, and became a regular magazine after that. That would be unfortunate as it means more people out of work and I'd be happy if I need to retract but somehow I suspect I won't have to. The magazine carried previews of manga in addition to its more focused coverage.

Update: Confirmed.
