RIP Wizard Magazine 1991-2011

Breaking: Wizard magazine folds after two decades [Updated] | Robot 6 @ Comic Book Resources ? Covering Comic Book News and Entertainment

When I was a LOT younger, about 85% of the info I’d get about comics was from this magazine. Granted, I stopped reading over a decade ago, but in its early years, it was a fun publication. I have noticed the mag isn’t nearly as big as its old size. Most of it was the price guide, but that was 75% of why I picked it up. I used to enjoy the art people would include on the envelopes they would send in. Also, the exclusive trading cards and ash cans.

Wowwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. =(

That really sucks for the people who lost their jobs, but Wizard wasn’t a good magazine. I think it did more to hurt fandom than to help it. I am not gonna miss something that was designed to appeal to the lowest common denominator.
