Digital comics and anthology site â€˜Literate Machineâ€™ has seen very little activity in the recent months- mainly because the company folded in May. Although information is sparse at this time, Literate Machineâ€™s official website cites problems with their financial backing, as well as founding members of the site being hired by competing companies. This is definitely a sad affair, what with the companyâ€™s focus on independent and small press works. The best we can hope for is that the artists and creators promoted will be able to find a new digital home. However, although rising out of unfortunate events, anyone who is interested in what â€˜Literate Machineâ€™ had to offer, all their free comics are still available to download, so those interested in the indy scene might want to check out whatâ€™s there and let these artistsâ€™ works get some more exposure.
