DC announced that its CMX imprint, the company’s manga arm, is closing July 1, 2010. Jim Lee and Dan DiDio broke the news in a prepared statement.

“Over the course of the last six years, CMX has brought a diverse list of titles to America and we value the books and creators that we helped introduce to a new audience. Given the challenges that manga is facing in the American marketplace, we have decided that CMX will cease publishing new titles as of July 1, 2010.

The shuttering of the CMX line does not affect the best-selling series Megatokyo which will continue publication, now as a DC Comics title with story and art by Megatokyo’s award-winning creator Fred Gallagher.

We’d like to take a moment to acknowledge the efforts and dedication of the CMX staff and to thank our fans who have supported CMX.

The Megatokyo series is really good, and is probably the only series I picked up from this line.

    You’ll be glad to know, then, that Fred is in the final stages of getting Volume Six ready for print.

    And the silver lining of the CMX shutdown is that, with MT coming under the DC bullet proper, Piro is now one step closer to his ultimate goal of writing Batman. Only a few million more steps to go…
