Maybe they just decided to go to Comic-Con.
After 11 years, the leaders of New York's Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art have shuttered their venue. The abrupt closure came Monday, with museum officials saying they will move out of the current space by the end of July, according to reports.
Admittedly, the museum is a small one, occupying the fourth floor of a building in the SoHo neighborhood of New York. The organization, known somewhat humorously as MoCCA, devoted itself to exhibitions on the world of comics. Past shows spotlighted Stan Lee, "Batman," "Archie" comics, Will Eisner and more.
The museum opened in 2011. It remains unclear why officials decided to close the doors to the public. The museum's chairman and president, Ellen S. Abramowitz, told the Wall Street Journal that the organization will continue to exist but did not elaborate on what form it will take.
