F+W Media cited "general poor market conditions and forces working against the title's sustainability including the downturn in print advertising and the proliferation of free content available online for this highly specialised industry" as the factors behind the move.

Comics Buyer's Guide was founded by Alan Light in 1971 under the moniker of The Buyer's Guide to Comics Fandom and published in a tabloid newspaper format.

Krause Publications acquired the weekly periodical more than a decade later and eventually transformed it into the monthly magazine format it exists in today.

Senior editor Maggie Thompson and editor Brent Frankenhoff will continue to work in the comics field after the publication is discontinued.
