SOHO — Somebody call Superman.
The Downtown museum devoted to comic books and illustrations that recently marked a decade in operation suddenly shut its doors.
According to a statement posted on its website Monday, The Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art on Broadway just below Houston Street recently closed for unknown reasons.
MoCCA — whose most recent exhibits looked at "Batman," illustrations for Allen Ginsberg's famous poem "Howl" and cartoonists' takes on 9/11 — will remain closed on the fourth floor of 594 Broadway but will serve the public in a new way, the statement said.
"While the physical space is closing, plans are afoot to continue MoCCA in a new and exciting incarnation," according to the museum. "An announcement of MoCCA’s future arrangements will be forthcoming by the end of July."
Staff of the museum, who did not immediately respond to requests for comment, elaborated on Twitter that MoCCA will not seek another location but that its programming will nonetheless resume.
"New and exciting things are to come. … Programming, exhibits, MoCCA Fest, education will continue in NYC," read a tweet posted Monday.
Fans of the museum reacted to the closure on MoCCA's Facebook page.
"It breaks my heart to know that the physical location will be closing, but ANY other way that MoCCA can live on is good," Facebook user Debra Rohlfs wrote.
Others added they were eager to hear about what's next for the museum.
"I can't wait to hear the good news," Facebook user Steve Elworth wrote.
A representative for building owner 594 Broadway Associates LLC did not immediately respond to an inquiry about plans for the museum's space, whose prime real estate is located on the southeast corner of Broadway and East Houston Street.
