Looks like times are changing the manga magazine business. Hopefully Shonen Jump will still be around for seveal years though.

If this produced 600+ pages of manga weekly, then where's all that talent going to go? Self-publishing manga artists? Less variety overall me thinks.

It probably ran more like 300 pages.
The successful series will be ported over to other magazines - Birdy the Mighty and Rainbow both have anime coming, and aren't going to miss a beat.
I'm more concerned about good but not best selling titles, like Tomehane.

Why is that? Publishers going down makes things rare, magazines going down has nothing to do with availability of the series that ran in it. They'll stay in print as long as they normally would, gradually drifting out once they end (including the ones that end when the magazine does) and maybe getting reprinted in bunko size if they sold well enough.
"Rare" manga only crop up when the publisher goes down, like the original Trigun, or when the original publisher decides a series didn't sell enough to reprint or keep in print despite reknewed interested from people discovering their subsequent works.

Well, that sucks. I just hope the series will be finding new homes, especially Birdy and Kurosagi. I'm not too worried with Birdy, since Decode is coming out this Summer, but still...

This.... doesn't tell me what's going to happen to the manga! I hope Kurosagi doesn't have to have a shotgun ending!
