"I am receiving multiple confirmations from across the industry, through none yet from Wizard’s higher ups and PR people yet, that Wizard: The Guide To Comics, the magazine that covered the mainstream comics industry for twenty years and created all manner of careers in the process has closed, effective immediately. Or at least the print version has.
Almost all Wizard magazine staff have been laid off, and all freelance engagements cancelled.
Sister magazine Toyfare, covering the toy market, has not been affected, nor have the Wizard comic conventions."
So this is the end of Wizard. Wow. I stopped buying when the price went up and the page count went down. I am still sad to see the magazine leaving stands. What do you guys think?
over the last year or so I have been seeing a large drop in content and quality of this book and wonder to myself how much longer would it last.
