Anyone that collected comics in the hay day of the early to mid 90’s is familiar awesomeness that was Wizard Magazine!
Wizard Magazine: A Guide To Comics originally launched in 1991, just in time for the rise of the independents such as Image, Valiant, Malibu and so on. Wizard magazine was the go to source for industry news, updates, exclusive previews, creator interviews and a monthly price guide. Comic enthusiasts like me read it cover to cover!
However 2000, between the comic book industry’s drastic slow down and the rise of the internet, magazine publication simply was not as profitable as it once was. Wizard ceased publication to focus solely on their conventions.
BleedingCool.com is reporting that someone has licensed the Wizard Magazine name and is preparing for a new publication launch!
If anybody would have inside info on a new Wizard Magazine, it would be Bleeding Cool, which was formed by Wizard alumni William Christensen and Mark Seifert.
There is still no word yet on if the new product will be a print magazine, a website, an app or some combination of the bunch, but I can’t wait to find out!
Wizard World Chicago is coming up at the end of August. Could an announcement be coming up?
Keep tuned to Geeky Daddy for more info!
