Disney Publishing is shutting down its Disney Adventures digest magazine with the November issue, ending a 17 year run.  The title was still booking over 1 million copies per issue, primarily via subscriptions. 


It is notable not only as one of Disney's many ways of reaching a mass audience, but also as the platform that exposed Bone and other comics to that audience, often for the first time.  No word on the fate of sister publication Comic Zone (see 'Disney Gets Deeper into Comics').
