buenaventura press closes...

just read the sad news that buenaventura press had to shut down due to inclement financial conditions (i suppose that's always the case).

buenaventura was one of the most ambitious and promising publishing ventures in the comics industry. they've released some remarkable work in their few working years, certainly some of the best comics of the past decade. though one cannot expect that any publisher will share alvin's precise curatorial vision, perhaps current or new publishers will step up to the plate and keep releasing exciting work that exists along the same lines.
