Heard about this. Devastating news for many of Thomson's employees and really the end of an era in terms of how they run their operation, but thankfully it seems not likely to affect their actual publications too much. Small comfort for those affected, though.

It really isn't looking good, is it? Glad to see that as yet there are no names from editorial on the death list...

Yeah - for one thing, the Dandy's editor Craig Graham won't lose his job (when the comic closes, as formally announced today) because he also edits WWE Kids magazine.

It was never in any doubt really, was it? A sad day... No
