Wizard World Lays Out Plans To Collapse Digital Comic Market

Wizard World Inc., not content with being remembered as one of primary causes of the collapse of the comic book market in the 1990s, looked to the future as they announced their re-launch of their Wizard brand in a new digital format as well as publishing a quarterly "premium" magazine. Seriously though, look at almost any documentary, article, or story written about the collapse of the comic market in the late '90s and there is a reference, citation or footnote pointing out that Wizard had a direct hand in creating the environment that almost led to the extinction of the comic industry.

Undeterred by these facts and their place in comic history, Wizard has pressed on and is excited to announce a revamped, revitalized, and reanimated digital initiative which will feature a segment called "WizPop", a daily pop-culture news service. Even though the announcement by Wizard World Inc. is only hours old, speculation has already begun on if "WizPop" is the laziest name in the history of marketing. Some speculators contend it's simply the lamest.

The announcement touted Wizard's nearly two decade run as a "respected" voice of comics and vowed to continue to share their "unique authoritative point-of-view". If you think you can stomach the maddening inducing, revisionist history, fantasy land that Wizard perceives themselves in, you can read the full announcement here.

No word yet on whether the first quarterly "premium" magazine will be a chrome hologram Rob Liefeld cover or a gatefold chrome Jim Lee cover.
