Wizard of a website
A new blog dedicated to The Wizard comic has launched over at http://wizardcomics1970-1974.blogspot.com/
This fan site features many scans from the seventies version of The Wizard when it was relaunched as a comic. (It had previously been a story paper. See a brief entry about that on my blog here.)
What's pleasing about the new Wizard website is that not only does it feature cover scans, but also story pages and ads, giving the visitor a real taste of what the comic was like. Nice to see ads for other DC Thomson comics there too, showing the free gift promotions of the day.
Some of the images on the website take a while to load even with Broadband (perhaps because they're 150dpi instead of 72dpi?) but the wait is worthwhile.
