How cool is that cover?

This thing is awesome! I picked it up at a local used book shop for a just a couple bucks. Yeah, it's completely out of date, but I'm fan of Wizard Magazine (or at least the Wizard of old, the last few years there were atrocious).

Dang am I glad I did. This is the coolest formatted price guide I've seen. Overstreet may be the standard, but Wizard is the most fun! It was perfect for new fans and old fans alike. It had guides for all thing involved with collecting. Those features keep you entertained for hours. Unfortunately, I didn't get the 4 free X-Men cards, they were long gone. Sad

It had a guide for:
-The History of Comic Fandom & The Industry
-A Comic History Timeline
-The Anatomy of a Comic Book (the different parts of a comic and terminology)
-Comic Book Grading Guide
-Comic Book Collectibles Guide
-Buying and Selling Comic Books
-Profiles of Comic Book Publishers
-A List of the Most Valuable Comics
-A List of Famous Characters First Appearances
-A List of Writers & Artists First Books
-A List of Publishers First Books
-Guide to Storing Comics
-Guide to Restoring Comics

Plus it had the normal stuff Overstreet has like the actual price guide with a much more complete listing than you'd see in their monthly issues, a classic comic cover gallery, a modern comic cover gallery, and ads for major comic shops across the nation.

I so wish they kept printing these every year. I would much rather have this than the standard Overstreet Price Guide that doesn't offer all the extras that this Wizard one does. Far as I know, the 1995 one I'm talking about, that's pictured above, is the first one. And the last one was the very next year's release in 1996 seen below:

Awesome pick up! I used to love reading Wizard back in the day, as they are / were so much fun to read.
