Virgin Comics shuts down
Publishers Weekly is reporting that Virgin Comics, the joint venture between Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Group and the India-based comics publisher Gotham Entertainment, has closed down.
The company published comics based on Gotham Entertainment’s Shakti line of comics and with ties to Hollywood creative talent. Hugh Jackman, Nicolas Cage, Guy Ritchie and others had comics lined up with the company.
Guy Ritchie’s Gamekeeper is definitely worth seeking out, while it’s still findable, as is Garth Ennis’ take on Dan Dare.
The company recently announced comic books by Stan Lee and Grant Morrison that now seem unlikely to ever see the light of day.
