This is unfortunate news, but it's also hardly surprising. I never read the four titles that are being "suspended," mostly because they never had stories by Barks, Rosa, or Van Horn. I dropped WDC&S and Uncle Scrooge because $7 a month was just too expensive. I'm reluctant to pay that much even for back issues. I was only willing to pay $7 for an issue that contained new Don Rosa material, but now that material has run out, while at the same time the prices are getting even higher.
In short, I'm not entirely surprised that Gemstone's publishing strategy has proved unworkable.
What do you all think about this?
