I disagree. I think the Marvel/DC superhero comics might not last past this generation, but indie-comics and Manga will live on. That won't make much of a difference to me because that's mainly what I read, anyway.
Still, it's sad to see any genre die out, especially since there are a few very good Superhero stories hidden under all the creepy gross out crap. I do enjoy DC's Superman/Batman title which thankfully doesn't have any sick nonsense, for example.
I do agree it's gross-out stuff that's killing it. It's like they learned nothing
from image's incredible failure.
