Reaction to Highwater Books’ End

imageYesterday's news that the highly regarded art comics publisher Highwater Books was ending operations met with a small voicing of disappointment in arts comics circles, and mention on a few web sites that admirably include smaller publishers as part of their coverage cycle.

This site received a few queries as to why there wasn't a bigger fuss made. I would guess it's a combination of things: Highwater's erratic publishing schedule means little in the way of separation shock, most art comics fans are confident -- perhaps with little cause -- that Highwater's projects will quickly find a new home, and the nature of comics industry news is that the next story is often the most important one.

Me, I'm sad.
