Dennis Shuts Maxim UK Print Edition, Goes Online-Only

We asked a month ago whether the collapse of mens' mag Arena was the first of many closures in that sector this year and that's exactly what it looks like: Dennis Publishing will shut the UK edition of its Maxim magazine from May and take the brand online-only after 14 years of publishing.
