posted on 2011-01-24 19:20 EST
The ICv2 retail news source reports that Wizard World has shut down the print editions of its Wizard and Toyfare magazines, effective immediately. The company said that it plans to create an online Wizard World magazine in February to "reach an even wider audience."
According to documents filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Wizard founder Gareb Shamus took the publisher Wizard Entertainment public via a reverse merger with the failed gas company Go Energy (traded as GOEE.PK). Shamus has been appointed President and Chairman of the company, which will be renamed Wizard World, Inc. The company will publish the digital magazine and also handle the Wizard World brand of conventions.
In 2009, Wizard Entertainment shuttered its eight-year-old magazine Anime Insider.
