Not more than one week after I asked the question “Is Wizard still around?” do they announce that they’re ceasing publication. Wizard magazine was “THE” go-to magazine for everything comic book related in the 1990s and early 2000s. Was this a magazine for bad ass spell casters? No, not at all. Wizard was all about comics. Wizard showcased humorous articles filled insight regarding everything in the comic book world.
Writers Jan Van Meter and Greg Rucka are doing something incredibly creative to help out the folks in Oklahoma who are currently without homes, power, water, and just about everything else. Greg and Jan are participating in the #TwitterYardSaleOK drive to help raise some extra cash for the thousands of residents of OK who are in a very bad place right now.
How does it work? Simply follow @HopelessJen (Jan) or on Twitter and send her a picture of your Red Cross donation [linky] to receive some comics by both her and Greg Rucka. If you’re not a comic book fan and are wondering who these two might be, they’ve worked on everything from Batman and the Amazing Spider-Man to Wolverine and Lady Sabre. They write some amazing stuff gang.
Be a hero!
#TwitterYardSaleOK works. I tweet pix of comics. You tweet me a pic of your Red Cross donation for OK. We send you comics.
