I Hate Myself and I Want to Die -- Well, not quite as bad as all that, but here's the worst news I've ever woken up to since I began writing about comics half a decade ago:

"I have ceased publishing new work for the foreseeable future. Egomania #2 is the final release from Eddie Campbell Comics. I conceived Egomania in a moment when From Hell was bringing in so much revenue that I could afford to indulge myself and put out a magazine which made no compromises to market expectations. I wanted to do a mag made up of my enthusiasms, pure and simple, presented in a precise and attractive typographical setting. I also wanted it to be such an eclectic mix of stuff that it would confound the comics purists who attempt to oppress and stultify our medium by straight-jacketing it with their definitions and rules. It's time to broaden our vision instead of narrowing it. I knew the thing had no chance in the current market and that the clock was ticking as soon as I started. The collapse of my US distributor last year hurried things to an early conclusion."

Please do buy Egomania #1 and 2 as soon as you can if you haven't already. They were outstanding, unique contributions to the artform, and the world is literally a bit shittier for the knowledge that there aren't going to be any more.
