Just as a bit of ancillary info following the post I wrote this weekend about comics journalism, Newsarama.com announced today that it has been acquired by Imaginova.com, a science and technology reporting company. “Newsarama will serve as Imaginovaâ€™s eyes and ears in the world of genre entertainment,” according to the official press release at http://www.newsarama.com/Imaginova/announcement.html. My favourite part of the PR is where Doran and Brady recount the seven previous different iterations of the website, providing a nice bit of continuity to the announcement.
I don’t really have much else to add other than to observe that it happened. It seems Brady and Doran are quite happy, and so I am happy for them. I’m also kind of tickled that the pre-complaints about a lesser quality of service have started in the comments section related to the Press Release; it’s a very Newsarama-esque response to the news.
