Via PR, the official launch of the Wizard World “digi-zine” and also news that they have officially changed their stock ticker symbol to WIZD — when Wizard went public, it did so by buying out the failed energy company Go Energy, which had the ticker symbol GOEE. Luckily, you can now find all your Wizard SEC filings right here. In recent news, nothing too exciting, aside from switching accountants:

S&B’s reports on our financial statements for the years ended July 31, 2010 and 2009 did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion, but were qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles. Specifically, because the Company had a loss from operations, accumulated deficit and working capital deficit during the subject period, and has earned no revenues since inception, S&B expressed substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

Also, Yahoo has a HUGE typo on their page for the new symbol. As bad typists ourselves, we’re sympathetic.

Wizard World, Inc. (WIZD) (the “Company”) today unveiled “Wizard World,” its first free weekly digital magazine dedicated to in-depth coverage of the pop culture, comics, graphic novels, toys and gaming categories. “Wizard World” digi-zine gives fans of all genres what they crave – a preview and an inside look at fresh and innovative new products, and is available both as a downloadable magazine and as an Apple iPad app. Gareb Shamus, CEO of the Company also announced today that the Company has changed its stock symbol to better reflect the nature of its business. The Company now trades under the symbol “WIZD.”

Mr. Shamus states, “I believe the Company’s new digital magazine provides the best medium to give the consumers and producers of pop culture what they seek in a format they are comfortable with. Wizard World digi-zine focuses heavily on future trends and product introductions and launches, as well as spotlights those that help determine the next hottest trend. With access to fans that number in the millions worldwide and through the production of Comic Cons across North America, I believe that the Company is in a unique position to launch Wizard World digi-zine to a massive audience. Further, those who are interested in graphic novels, genre films, video games, comic books and other pop culture will likely find that Wizard World digi-zine suits their interests.”

The inaugural edition of Wizard World digi-zine includes a look at what could be the best undiscovered new comic book launch of 2011, as well as an exclusive one-on-one interview with Batman and Rain Man movie producer, and best-selling author, Peter Guber.


  1. Trading at $0.75 a share, market capitalization of $26.02M, 34.69M shares.

    Someone purchased 260 shares this morning.

    Hmmm… Will The Beat start analyzing the quarterly Income Statements from Wizard?

  2. Kinda thought this was a hoax. WIZD, pronounced, whizzed, like in ‘ I took a whiz’ or ‘I whizzed on the electric fence’?
