Magazines & Comics

Some of the biggest treasures can be found in old magazines. Most tricks are first published in a magazine and then later appear in books. If you want to read about the roots of effects, or get a feeling of how it was to be a magician in former times, or if you just can't get enough to read, magazines are the best resource. Many famous magicians of the likes of Dai Vernon, Nate Leipzig or Ted Annemann left their early traces in magazines. Few pleasures compare to reading old conjuring journals. The ones I can offer you here are some of the best magic magazines of all time. And comics - what can I say - they have to be seen to be appreciated.

If old magazines are not for you and you rather want to read a current up-to-date magic magazine then check out Magicseen. It has a great mix of interviews, effects, reviews and news and comes both in a purely digital subscription as well as a print + digital subscription.

Albert M. Wilson & F. T. Singleton

Magic the Magazine of Wonder by Albert M. Wilson & F. T. SingletonThe magazine presented magic and allied subjects to the general public with a strong leaning towards the entertainment and recreational side rather than the scientific or philosophical. It stated in its first issue:
The object of this magazine is NOT to expose the worlds' best tricks, nor give away the darling secrets of clever professional and amateur magicians. MAGIC is intended to create a wider and more intelligent interest in a most attractive subject - to make more appreciative audiences for magical entertainers, and new devotees of a fascinating hobby.

Seven Circles (all 5 Volumes) by Walter GibsonSeven Circles was the official publication of the International Magic Circle (IMC). Editor-in-chief was Walter B. Gibson. In his first editorial Gibson wrote:
This magazine has a double purpose, as a perusal of its pages will show. First, it is a desire to give magicians a worth-while, readable publication, filled with items of value and interest. Second, it is definitely the magazine of a new organization - The International Magic Circle.

It is the editor's duty to produce a magazine that will be recognized as the best of all periodicals pertaining to the mystic art. There is only one...
