As suspected last week when it was discovered that Kick magazine had played its full 90 minutes, Attic Brand Media has gone into administration.

Titles that are likely to be closed are Kick, Kick Extra, Kraze Club and Merlin.
Appropriately for the publisher of a magazine about a legendary wizard, a company will emerge, phoenix-like, from the ashes of Attic to continue publishing National Geographic Kids.

A wonderful result all round! – except for creditors, contributors and most of the former staff of Attic of course.

A possibly interesting sentence from the article about Attic itself:

The company’s main landlines have not been answered … since Wednesday (2 November).
