DC Pulls The Plug On Zudacomics

Official Press Release:

DC Entertainment announced today that select ZUDA titles will be available through comiXology and the PlayStation®Network. Each ZUDA issue will feature approximately twenty pages of content; the first issue will be available for free and each subsequent issue will be priced at $.99. Effective today,www.zudacomics.com will be shut down. The Collective, the Official ZUDA Blog, will continue to be updated at http://zuda.blog.dccomics.com/ with information about upcoming releases and behind-the-scenes information.

The first issue of Jeremy Love’s Eisner nominated Bayou was available at launch for free. Issue 2 is now available through ComiXology and the PlayStation®Network. The first issue of David Gallaher and Steve Ellis acclaimed’ High Moon is now available, with the second issue available next week.

Upcoming Zuda titles for the PSP and ComiXology app include John Zito and Tony Trov’s Black Cherry Bombshells, Dan Govar’s Azure, Andy Belanger’s Bottle of Awesome, Sheldon Vella’s Supertron, and Adam Atherton’s Lily of the Valley.

From what I’ve gathered, Zuda had been restructuring it’s business model over the past few months, with changes both to their submissions policy and the end of their monthly competitions. So now my biggest question is did Zuda fail because of a lack of interest in the brand, or because of the economy?

Because, I mean, I’ve never read a Zuda book in the three years they’ve been around, nor could I tell you the names of any title they’ve produced, so I’m leaning to the former.
