Vanish Magazine Year 1 (Apr 2012 - Mar 2013) by Paul Romhany

"We have been readers of Vanish Magazine since day one and love watching it's continued success and growth since its inception. We love the ease and convenience of downloading each issue, yet it has the feel and layout of a real magazine. What more could you ask for? MORE VANISH MAGAZINES!!!" - Michael Giles

"ALL the Vanish magazines are with me everywhere I go (on my laptop and mobile devices) so that I can read them while I'm on the road and refer back to all the great articles whenever I want to. Vanish magazine is the best collection of articles by working professionals. It gives you the best access to the people who are in the know. I love it!" - Robert Strong

"VANISH isn't just a magazine you casually read and then toss aside. In a single month, Vanish Magazine has more practical advice for working magicians than all the other magic magazines combined. If it were offered as a print edition VANISH would find a respected place of honor on my bookshelf (and not hidden under my mattress like all those other magazines)." - Doug Scheer

"Love the magazine, and the format! I've never missed an issue. It's the best value out there, the price is right, and the new iPad edition is "awesome sauce!!" - Magic Mike Segal

"A practical and substantial magazine done by pros. A real treat to see VANISH appear!" - Rafael Benatar

"Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy reading Vanish Magazine. It's got a great international feel! You've had me hooked since the first issue and I always look forward to the next issue. You guys are definitely covering new territory. Congratulations and keep up the great work!" - Bill Herz


"It is a crime that this magazine is free. This is better laid out and better content than many of the paid magazines out there. There is no reason anyone who has an interest in magic on any level is not reading this. In this day of age of "everything comes with a price," this is unbelievable." - Banachek

"I think it's great! Definitely directed at the performing magician - which is a niche not covered by any other publication." - Bill Abbott

"I think' Vanish' should be AKA 'Glue' - you just can't put it down!" - Wayne Dobson

"VANISH Magazine somehow manages to bridge the gap, ushering in the future of Magic while honouring it's past." - Bro Gilbert

"Congrats on your new magazine, Vanish. Well done! I hope and trust that you have continued success!" - Jeff Hobson

"Just wanted to say I just received my free download and I'm very impressed! Great Magazine!" - Bill Malone

"The internet has already had a major impact on how magicians find and access information, and now the International digital magic publication VANISH has embraced these changes bringing us the new fabulous magic magazine of the future." - Alan Watson

"VANISH magazine is the BEST online magic magazine. Great information and always on time. It's on my iPad. It's a must have for all magicians." - Oscar Munoz
