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.
