The Witch's Tales

Total Issues: 2

A short-lived tie-in to a popular radio show of the 30's. Carwood seems to have been the dying remnant of an old dime-novel publisher, thus the odd format. Many of the stories appear to be reprints from the turn of the century.

The Wizard [1922]

Total Issues: 1970

Boys' story paper.

Note: Prior to its publication, a registration run of eight issues were produced by Thomsons. According to a Thomson editor: "These eight numbers were not on sale to the public, they were only produced for Registration purposes as required by law, and I've no doubt looked very strange as they would be made up from chunks of type and illustrated blocks already used for other purposes." (The first known 'issue' has a white cover and shows the latest women's fashions of the period.)

Later revived as a comic.
