Mark Evanier has reported on his blog that Sheldon "Shelly" Moldoff, the last surviving creator to have worked on the legendary Action Comics #1 passed away on Wednesday, at the grand old age of 91.

Now THIS is a body of work to leave behind. )

The final issue of Shonen Jump USA, April 2012, is now out. Thus the last monthly manga magazine in America passes away.



It's being replaced by Shonen Jump Alpha, a weekly online release at http://www.viz.com . Only available in North America at this time, alas.

As is appropriate for a final issue, it's a bit oversized.

four random pages from the issue )

Staying in the line-up for the new iteration are Bleach, One Piece and Naruto. Bleach looks like it's finally wrapping up though, so may need to be replaced within the year.

Dropped are Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's (mercifully) and Psyren (which apparently had a sudden drop in popularity and has already ended in Japan.)

Replacing them are Bakuman, Toriko and Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan.

I'm saddened by not being able to get a manga magazine fix monthly any more, but let's face it, we all knew this day was coming.
