Farewell with love, Inkblazers. Now help support these artists!

Inkblazers closes February 1st.

Aw, this is so sad! 

I've been a premium subscriber to Inkblazers (for a couple years--joined when they were still Manga Magazine) which provided beautiful, awesome independent comics and manga to the public. Their modus operandi was to be fair to artists and allow them to keep their rights, plus a large percentage of profit. According to the farewell letter it looks like there just isn't enough money to keep the company afloat.

I enjoyed Inkblazers so much and I actually hoped that one day my own work would appear there. *tears* 

I've only ever felt like this website, its staff, and its artists genuinely wished for the success of its artists and team. It's very sad to see them go. I hope the staff and CEOs know they did some great work while they were here and that the fans continue to support the artists and their work.

Here are some of the artists/comics I've been following, with links to where you can continue your support:
